Review:

What we have here is a teeny-tiny user's manual for a teeny-tiny computer. The Pocket PC shows how to use devices that are based on Microsoft Windows CE, regardless of their manufacturer. This book is equally applicable to devices from Compaq (the iPAQ series), Casio (Cassiopeia), Hewlett-Packard (Jornada), and Symbol Technologies (the PPT series). Author Steve Seroshek has documented the operating system and its key applications accurately and thoroughly, but he doesn't dig very deeply into aftermarket software, customization, or obscure hints and tricks. As a result, the book is slender, uncluttered, and easy for newcomers to the Pocket PC environment to follow. It will seem over-simple to users with even moderate familiarity with other platforms, but novices will welcome this deliberate approach.

The coverage in these pages, particularly synchronization of the Pocket PC's contents with a "mother ship" computer for purposes of data backup and electronic mail communication, is accurate and easy to follow. Special situations come up too--for example, users of AOL learn that they have to install a patch to get mail from their Pocket PCs. With its fine index, this book is a very good supplement to Windows CE's online help. --David Wall

Topics covered: Use of the Pocket PC family of personal digital assistants (PDAs), with emphasis on ActiveSync (via the cradle, a modem, or wireless link). Other sections deal with how to do work and have fun with Pocket PC applications, including Pocket Word, Pocket Excel, and Microsoft Windows Media Player.
