Asys MyPal A639
GPS is becoming an increasing fixture in cars and some smartphones; PDAs have generally had to go without built-in functions in favor of external adapters. In the Asus MyPal line, GPS is a built-in feature for some models. The latest addition is the A639; while it shares the 802.11b/g and Bluetooth 2.0 wireless of earlier models, it expands the storage appreciably with 1GB of flash memory and an SD card slot for more. Asus' PDA runs Windows Mobile 5 and has Microsoft-friendly software such as mobile versions of Outlook and Word. There is no confirmed availability or price.
