Tech Note: Qtek 9100 PDA Improvements
- MP3 player
- Web browser
- Geocaching database
- Word processor
- E-book reader
But of course it could be improved. Here's a list of things I'll be looking for in my next handheld.
- Better wifi antenna. The one in the 9100 only lets you connect when you're sitting nearly on top of the router.
- Better camera and/or camera control software. The one in the 9100 sucks spectacularly.
- Better touch screen accuracy. The 9100 and I quite often do not agree about exactly what part of the screen I'm touching with the stylus.
- Hardware key lock button. Getting the machine out of key lock mode with the aid of the touch screen and a fingernail is tiresome.
- Full-screen time & date readouts when in sleep mode. The 9100's readouts are tiny and invisible in sleep mode.
- Standard USB drive capability. In order to get stuff off from and onto the 9100, I need to install ActiveSync from Microsoft on the host machine. I just want to plug and play on any machine I happen to sit at.
- A GPS navigator.
