104. Documents for the Pocket PC

The future is mobile computing, and hand-held devices. For the first time we can now break the link between computers and their networks. A key element of this is to display documents on the mobile devices. The two main standards which are used are Microsoft Reader, and also Adobe Reader. The screen on the right-hand side shows an example of Adobe Reader with CNDS notes (in this case it is lecture_ip.pdf). I, personally, would recommend Abobe Reader for Pocket PC as it:

Allows documents to be displayed with a normal browser, and within the reader on the Pocket PC.

The information in Acrobat is tagged to enhance how the material is displayed.

If you want to view some of the material on your Pocket PC, then select the following:

Pre-introduction
Introduction
Network Types
Network/IP
Transport/TCP

and for my essays:

[Me and the Internet]

Along with the standard readers, such as Adobe and Microsoft, you should also consider the Mobipocket version, which allows the conversion of most types of documents into a PDA-type format. The Mobipocket version can be downloaded at:
