Handheld staff computing (just curious)
Very simply (and you might notice i have a wireless implementation thread in the networks section) im thinking how hard would it be to setup a "warehouse style" handhelp computing where staff members (on supervision duty for example) could call up studentDB, intranet etc etc.
Now all this is can be achieved with a WLAN/Laptop combination but i think handheld like the Motorola Symbol is more attractive as far as usage? In addition the handhelds i so far have looked at can also include Push to Talk phone services - a mobile combintation which is not to shabby.
Anyone got a system like this working? Really more curiosity then anything else.
Please comment as you wish.
