Hi,
what is difference between PDA and GSM? Can these devices integrate to java or j2ee? Is there any other latest device other than PDA and GSM people are using most nowadays?

Thank You,
Anu Shah

PDA (Personal Digital Assistant) is kind of a catch-all phrase for handheld digital devices. Some PDAs can run Java, some can't.

GSM, on the other hand, is a communications protocol, which may or may not be implemented by any given PDA.

So the two are really unrelated and can't be compared.

Now i understand that can't be compared. So then question is when PDA can be useful and when GSM can be useful?

Thank You,

I think that with 'GSM' people usually mean a mobile phone (cell phone), and with 'PDA' a small, handheld computer.

The difference between these devices is becoming less, because phones get more and more sophisticated, and there are lots of PDAs that can be used as a phone as well.

Both phones and PDAs can run Java.
