PDA makers decide what type of memory cards to use for your machine. The choice then for consumers is which PDA to purchase and the storage capacity of the card. Palm PDAs generally use SD or MMC cards, while Pocket PCs generally use compact flash cards. Some new converged smartphones use the new mini-SD cards, which have all the capability of an SD card in a much smaller package. Once you make the decision on buying a PDA, you can then outfit it with a card. With SD/MMC and compact flash cards falling in price and increasing capacity, consumers can get more than 1 GB of extra space on PDAs for $100 or less.
