Book Description

June 19 2002 0789727498 978-0789727497 1
Special Edition Using Pocket PCs gives corporate users foolproof instruction on the techniques that work and those that dont.
The only comprehensive reference on the market to address the intermediate and advanced needs of corporate users to help them get the most out of their wireless Pocket PC.
Takes the user from the point of purchase down the path toward becoming a power user.
Pocket PCs are quite flexible and have an endless array of add-on accessories supporting thousands of modems and Ethernet cards, memory storage cards, micro hard drives, digital cameras, and much more. Special Edition Using Pocket PCs focuses on getting things done with Pocket PCs in a wireless networked environment. Coverage includes- security, synchronization, productivity using Pocket Word and Pocket Excel, multimedia and graphics, and receiving e-mail through Pocket Outlook. The Pocket PC platform represents a new generation of hand-held computing devices. While the first release of the Pocket PC operating system set the stage for widespread adoption, the newly released Pocket PC 2002 has finally given the platform enough credibility to assert itself as the future of hand-held computing.
Michael Morrison is a writer and developer with extensive experience with new technologies. Michael has been using wireless hand-held devices for over a decade, dating back to early HP hand-held calculators. He got his start in writing when working with the first version of Microsofts DirectX game development API.

1.0 out of 5 stars For beginners and Microsoft sycophants only May 18 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This book will help you if you received no manual with your Pocket PC or if you're a beginner with computers, and if you share the author's fawning adoration of Microsoft. If you have any understanding of how to make Windows work, though, the manual that came with your Pocket PC and some experimentation will get you farther than spending money on this book would. If I could figure out how, I'd get my money back for this feature-length Microsoft advertising brochure.
The book offers no insights for the advanced user...it offers no information on the countless resources available everywhere *but* Redmond, Washington. The book doesn't answer basic questions, such as "Does shutting down programs decrease the drain on the battery charge?", for example, and it offers nowhere to get answers, except, of course, the Microsoft web site (where I've been unable to unearth the answer to that question).
The book extols the virtues of the Microsoft eBook Reader, for example, but neglects to tell the reader about how MS configures it to strip away historical fair use rights for published works, mentions that one must "activate" the Reader by getting a .Net Passport, but "forgets" to mention that Microsoft reserves the right (in its privacy policy) to share any information it obtains (such as book purchases) with any commercial "partner" it chooses.
If you have the ability to explore, spend the time exploring your Pocket PC and its manual and spend some time exploring the web to find all the sites devoted to Pocket PCs. You'll learn much more and save the price of this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book Sept. 6 2002
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is a well-written, really useful book. There is plenty of information about all sorts of aspects of Pocket PC and using your handheld, and it is all done in a very well-organized manner with a good index (always helpful for trying to find answers to "that question"). Personally, I find this book much more useful than some of the "competators" such as Dummies, PC Handbook (HP Edition), etc. because it spans from basic to more detailed issues, but does all well. Unlike the description above, I do not think that the book focused on networks. Happy reading!
