Have you used Microsoft Excel sheets on your desktop? If so, you can put all the inventory, financial data and employee lists into Excel spreadsheets. If your company has a special database that you will need to put on the handheld, make sure that you check the availability of the handheld version.

Any PDA can take Excel files. You can create them, edit them, sync them with desktop. Your price range can help you narrow down a device. Look at these pages and read the reviews, which include list price on all unit and price comparison on the Net, to see which one you like the best:

Both platforms (Palm and Pocket PC) have good collections of database apps. If you go to handango.com and do a search on database, you will find a list of them. For Access database specific apps, here are a couple you can check out.

For Palm:

For Pocket PC:

As for which unit is the best for you, I'd suggest that you read our hands-on reviews of them and compare the features to your requirements.

The Acer N30 isn't sold in the US.
