Palm Treo, PocketPC, iPAQ. If you're ready to make the phone-to-PDA leap, you can buy a PDA when you purchase your Cingular Wireless plan.
PDAs can connect to the Internet with a wireless connection so you can get your email, log on to the corporate intranet, and browse the Internet. This service begins around $19.99 per month for 5 MB of data to an unlimited amount of data for around $39.99 per month, depending on your Cingular Wireless plan.
Since your Cingular Wireless plan is designed to be simple, you can have fun exploring your pda, which offers the productivity of a laptop with more portability and less hassle at airport screening checkpoints.
When you're traveling, braving flight delays, the PDA wireless connection is available in most parts of the United States, parts of Canada, and some international areas (charges will apply). The PDA is an excellent alternative to those who refuse to get hooked on a BlackBerry but want productivity (and playtime) away from home or office.
Cingular doesn't have all the PDAs you want available in all areas, so check availability in your area before you sign up.
