With the rise of smart phones and even the iPad's launch, what does the future hold for PDA's? What I'm referring to are non-phone digital devices. Things like the old Handsprings, Palms, and iPAQs. Will the Windows Mobile Classic platform survive? The iPhone/iPad OS seem to be more focused on Web based applications. Here is my problem. At work we have been trying to shift from paper to a PDA based system. Web based solutions are not an option - not enough cell coverage in rural areas. I'd love to have the ability to run FileMaker Pro on a handheld, but the ability just isn't there yet - and might never be. The iPod Touch with Bento is a step in the right direction, but I don't think it will be rugged or robust enough for what we do. Any thoughts about where this technology is heading?
