It can be used to organize everything in your schedule, plus it comes with a variety of features that include different amounts of memory size. Screen sizes on most Pocket PC’s are about four inches lengthwise. They normally have a high resolution feature which makes the color screens bright and easy to read. Battery charges normally last about six hours and can be recharged as needed, fairly quickly.
Pocket PC’s most normally include built in wireless Internet connection capabilities.

Some software applications for a Pocket PC enable it to create spreadsheets and save voice dictations if the unit is equipped with a recording devise.
Choosing the best Pocket PC for your needs will require research. If you’re still unsure as to which variety is best for you, ask an electronics salesperson to advise you. You will need to have a list of what you will be using the Pocket PC for, including whether it will be used for managing a business, remembering important dates, taking photo’s, or playing music, games or videos.
