Question 1: Does the PDA have a brand effect?
In today's consumer attitude, branding is an aspect that all consumers will consider carefully. But the author believes that the brand is only a reference item for consumers to make choices, not a must. Therefore, consumers should not blindly believe in the propaganda of manufacturers when choosing a Handheld PDA. Consumers must consider whether the price they pay for choosing a brand is worthwhile.
Therefore, if you have determined the configuration you want, choosing a mainstream brand of the rugged handheld device may give you a lot of peace of mind in the future. After all, these mainstream brands are more reliable in terms of the rugged handheld device quality, compatibility, and scalability.
Question 2: Which one should Palm and Pocket PC choose?
In fact, this problem is what most consumers think when they buy a PDA. After all, as the two major operating systems for PDAs, Palm and Pocket PC have their own advantages. The Palm operating system is simple and takes up little space, and its open platform has accumulated more than 6,500 applications for PDAs using Palm systems. At the same time, due to the simplicity, the PDA of the Palm operating system uses less power and has a longer standby time. The disadvantage of Palm is that it does not match the operating habits of Windows. This has led to the situation that some users are not easy to get started, and the multimedia functions of other Palm operating systems are relatively weak.
The Pocket PC rugged mobile computer operating system has very good compatibility with Windows systems, and has good operating performance and good multimedia support. However, because the Pocket PC operating system is relatively large, the software requires a high hardware environment. Therefore, most of the PDAs that use the Pocket PC system consume more power and have shorter continuous working hours.
In summary, the choice of the operating system should be determined according to the needs of the user. If there is a high requirement for continuous working time and standby time, the Palm operating system machine may be more suitable. If you are looking at hardware scalability, high multimedia performance requirements, or better compatibility with Windows systems, you should choose a PocketPC operating system PDA.
Question 3: Is it one step in place, or is it enough?
When purchasing a android Handheld PDA, consumers often encounter such problems. In the face of a higher-priced but more functional model and a cheaper model with only ordinary functions, I don't know how to choose. Technically, since the advent of Moore's Law, more and more IT products are moving closer to this standard. Although PDA has not yet reached the expected speed of development of Moore's Law, its updated products can still be described in an endless stream. Therefore, for the balance of function and price, the author is still saying the old saying: "Practical is the best use."
For example, wireless functions have become the development trend of PDAs, and wireless networks have also been used more and more. If users use wireless functions in normal use, they should choose those with wireless interconnection when purchasing. PDA. However, if the PDA is mainly used to record information such as addresses and telephone numbers, then the wireless function is a waste for the user, and it is better to use the funds for purchasing other products that are more needed.
At the same time, the author suggests to purchase PDAs with higher scalability when the consumer's economic conditions permit. The expansion capabilities here include software and hardware. For PDAs with strong software expansion capabilities, consumers can upgrade their old products by software upgrades to get the latest products on the market. This kind of product is not outdated, but it is the value-added service of the products. For PDAs with strong hardware extension functions, consumers can extend many hardware devices, such as wireless modules, Bluetooth modules, and expansion storage modules, which are not available in the original hardware, so that the hardware performance of a machine itself can be increased. Use it.
