Mobile working these days requires plenty of communications options. Wireless networking is a standard feature of notebooks, with built-in Wi-Fi delivering email and Internet access in the office and on the road thanks to Wi-Fi hotspots. For more continuous over-the-air communications, SIM-based data cards for cellular networks (GPRS and 3G) have become popular. The next logical step is building SIM card support directly into notebooks, freeing up the system's PC Card slot for other duties.

Palm may have upset legions of Palm OS fans by choosing to license Windows Mobile 5.0, but Microsoft's OS was undoubtedly chosen with more than half an eye on corporate integration. The good news is that Palm has tweaked the Windows Mobile software in some intelligent and compelling ways to come up with an extremely usable smartphone.
