Small and Smaller

CFO Magazine writes about the ever-going quest for smaller, lighter and more powerful computing devices. Ken Dulaney at Gartner said, "People want zero-pound laptops. And they are trying to turn PDAs into just that."

However, even with all the improvements, Dulaney noted that "People think [a PDA] can do what a laptop can do, but it can't. That will just never exist."

The article does cite a recent report from Dulaney co-hort at Gartner, Todd Kort, who wrote "wireless PDAs are increasingly seen as an adjunct or alternative to notebook computers."
