Pocket PC and iPod Technology

Pocket PC and iPod Technology

A lot of business professionals now have their very own Pocket PCs. This versatile, sleek, and lightweight mobile device offers a lot of benefits which makes it quite attractive to professionals. The manufacturers of Pocket PCs have nothing to fear against its brethren, the iPod.

According to Microsoft, their new hardware called ‘Zune’ can compete with the iPod technology. With the extreme competition in the market, manufacturers are trying to think of effective ways in order to capture the attention of their target market. This is an advantage on the part of the customers because they can get the best products that can meet their everyday communication needs. Another thing is that with the competition, prices are much more affordable making it easier for the public to obtain such mobile devices.

There is no need for Pocket PCs to envy iPod technology because the mobile device offers a lot of features which the iPod doesn’t. For one, you can download several applications like voice recognition, IM, pocket television, and a lot more. The device also allows the user to surf the internet wherever and whenever. Since the device is sleek and lightweight, you can carry it anywhere you go, especially to your place of work. With its multimedia capabilities, it is definitely beyond the iPod technology.

The iPod technology is also good because the device allows the user to store a lot of music (about 15,000 songs) as well as 25,000 pictures or photos. This device is available in four models. It also has a USB2 port and a FireWire cable (optional). Aside from that, it also boasts an alarm clock and it can also be connected to the television.

With the announcement of Microsoft that it will launch the ‘Zune’, the Pocket PCs can now have additional features like that of iPod. Since the Pocket PC can download software applications, owners who wish to have iPod-like features can now enjoy listening to music or store as many photos as they want through the Zune.

Pocket PCs surpass the basic features of the iPod technology but if Microsoft and Apple want to remain as competitive as ever, it will always benefit the users. If you simply want to store music or photos, you can settle with the iPod because it is cheaper than the Pocket PCs. This mobile device is excellent if you already have a mobile phone with advanced features.

For the ever-busy professionals who need to handle a lot of business affairs, iPod can’t possibly meet their needs especially in terms of various software applications. Regardless of the high price of the Pocket PCs, it is definitely a good investment because you can use it at work to check on your business operations. By choosing industry-related applications, all your needs can be met by the mobile device. By adding the Zune to your Pocket PC, you can now listen to your favorite songs if you feel a lot of tension and if you want to relax.

If you need extra help at work, the Pocket PC can provide you with the right applications and of course, the use of the internet. Don’t hesitate to invest on it now because it’s really worth it. Just look for the Zune and soon, you will already enjoy the iPod technology by Apple.
