Abstract

Using Internet-enabled mobile handheld devices to access the World Wide Web is a promising addition to the Web and traditional e-commerce. Mobile handheld devices provide convenience and portable access to the huge information on the Internet for mobile users from anywhere and at anytime. However, most software engineers are not familiar with programming for handheld devices. Handheld computing is the programming for handheld devices such as smart cellular phones and PDAs (Personal Digital Assistants). It consists of two kinds of programming: client- and server- side programming. This paper introduces handheld computing and gives a detailed description of Palm OS programming, client-side handheld computing. Other related issues such as mobile commerce systems and handheld devices will be discussed also.
