Why do I need a Handheld PC?

Because you can’t e-mail a napkin.

You never know when – or where – the light bulb is going to go on. When that perfect idea pops up and you need to capture it for later. Now you’re covered with a Handheld PC running Microsoft® Windows® CE.

For one, it’s light, turns on instantly and stays on for up to 12 hours with one battery.

And two, it’s your ideal PC Companion, complete with Pocket versions of your most-often-used desktop applications – Word, Microsoft Excel, PowerPoint, Microsoft Access, Outlook®, and Microsoft Internet Explorer. They don’t do everything your desktop PC can do, just what you need most when you’re mobile. Send e-mail. Take notes. Check your calendar. Browse the Web.

You can take all of your vital information with you, everywhere you go, and back again. Just connect your desktop PC with your Handheld PC, and any changes are automatically updated between the two machines.

Handheld PCs come in a range of sizes, from a range of manufacturers, and start at $799. Purchase one today and receive a FREE* Kingston® 8MB CompactFlash™ storage card and bonus software – an over $100 value. For a complete list of manufacturers and retailers, go to:
