I am a firm believer in mobile computing. I have a pocket pc (that I only use at home). It controls my home stereo and music. I also have a cingular 2125 a “candy bar” style smart phone. I really do appreciate this phone when I am out of town.
First, i went away for training last week for 4 days. During the drive down I was able to respond to a few time sensitive emails using the outlook client. Second, during the class we did not have any internet connectivity. This turned out to be great for training (I learned a ton… more about that later). It was horrible for work, thank goodness for my smart phone. I was able to just keep synchronizing to read email and respond. I do have to say the phone is great for reading email, but writing is another thing. I am horrible on that little keyboard.
