Pic (.bmp, .gif, etc.) files in PDA
      #8584 - 02/11/04 08:06 PM

Does anyone know whether there is any PDA out there that can store and display picture files? I would like to scan business visiting cards and store the image files in PDA for easy viewing..any ideas?

Thanks a lot...

I know all of the Pocket Windows 2003 PDA's have excellent image viewing capabilities - but be warned...

Your plan of scanning in the business cards and viewing them as images is flawed unless you're going to apply some indexing or text searching ability - otherwise you're going to find it difficult and slow to search through a whole series of images - rather than a properly structured contacts database.

Can't say for sure, but check out this app and see if it will fit your needs...

That looks like a good tool for that price but yet to see its real features. Now I am thinking of writing a small VB application to load and display business card images and create an executable and load it to the PDA. Any idea whether that is possible? I may not need to connect with the addresses in the outlook. Thanks for all your input..
