Publishing for PDAs and Handheld Devices
Because of the popularity of PDAs and handheld devices, numerous methods and software applications to provide content for these devices have emerged. New applications are also continually being developed. If you are interested in publishing for these devices, be sure to visit the resources listed here. You should also familiarize yourself with the languages and tools used to publish ebooks, webpages and wireless content; these applications will also be used for PDAs, and new applications will be based on existing technology. Publishers must also keep in mind that PDAs use two competing operating systems: Microsoft's Windows CE and Palm's PalmOS.
