Things to Consider Before Purchasing a Handheld Device

There are many things to consider when choosing a handheld device and no single device will be a perfect fit for all users.  But the beginning of any hardware search should be a user needs analysis. Edu-Track Home School for the Handhelds will run on the most basic $49 Palm handheld device, but consider your other needs .  Thousands of applications are available for Handhelds, so consider how else you might be using your handheld before making your purchase decision.

 

Where will the devices be used?

Indoor and outdoor lighting can affect the display on some devices, especially those with color. 

 

How long will I be away from a PC and battery charger?

Although the average battery life of a handheld devices is significantly longer than a portable PC, this is still a factor when choosing a device and an important consideration for protecting your data.  Long life lithium ion batteries replace AAA batteries on some models, manufacturers estimate that these can last up to one week.  If you are planning to use the device away from the charger for several days, we recommend a device with removable media for data backup. 

 

Will I need wireless internet connections?

Mobile synchronization and internet access are possible using many of the internet enabled wireless handheld devices (both Palm & Pocket PC).

 

Will I synchronize away from a PC?

Even if you will not need live internet access on the handheld, they may wish to synchronize to a network database without synchronizing to a PC first.  Several manufacturers produce ethernet cradles that connect directly to the network or add on devices that work like an ethernet card and allow wireless network synchronization at a network Access Point

 

Are the devices susceptible to injury?

There are two ways to prevent loss of data: 1) Removable backup media and 2) A durable device.

 

What is my budget?

Handheld pricing varies from models designed for "student" use to those which can replace laptop PCs.  Prices range from as little as $79 for basic models to hundreds of dollars.

 

How much memory do I need?

In general there is a trade-off between memory and price.  Devices start with about 32MB of memory.  Most manufacturers extend the device RAM with Compact Flash media or other add-on storage memory media.  It is always a good idea to purchase a handheld device with expandable memory.
