I'm did not use Windows Mobile operating system in PDT and I even have to disable the hassles games and recording options that are often misused.
For now I use a mixture of device used. PDT is used if you need a barcode scanner, whereas for non-barcode data entry using a PDA Pidion brands that cost half the price of PDT.
PDT may accelerate the process of entry data and improve accuracy of data because data entry is done on the spot and direct to the data stored on the server. At the office, PDT is used for various purposes, ranging from data entry unloading transactions, inventory taking, Check goods data, Check location of the goods until the media guide for the officers if they were asked to perform field data collection. The media guide will guide field officers collect the goods at a certain location or shelf by considering various aspects, such as consideration of the sequence for efficient retrieval and consideration of the nearest location.
PHP used as the main engine for web programming to be accessed via PDT. The main consideration for selecting PHP is actually a practical reason. PHP can be directly applied without having to wait for the learning process if they attempted to J2ME-based implementation.
Use of this web application actually reduces the strategic significance of PDT alone, because the main function that is used only browsers and mobile nature barcodenya plus scanner. So I had to convey to our suppliers, PT. Peripheral Solutions that we should be offering Linux-based PDT alone, or non-Windows operating systems other cheaper :-) and just prioritize job functions.
