Handheld Computers versus Electronic Organizers

Just about anyone who has worked in the business world for the last ten to fifteen years has used or seen an electronic organizer. The battery-powered equivalent of the date-planner booklet, an electronic organizer gives the traveling professional the ability to store, edit and search for a name, address, phone number or other information. Built-in calculators, currency converters, world clocks and other features made these devices quite useful. However, none of the electronic organizers on the market at that time were truly expandable.

Furthermore, while some organizers could communicate with a host computer through a serial port, they could not easily share their data with other host-system applications. These distinctions created the market niche for the handheld computer.
