Accessing Outlook from PDA

I currently use a Dell desktop and I store plenty of important data on Outlook: rates, past correspondence, etc. I have to access this whenever I receive an e-mails from clients in U.S.
So when I am out of the office, and rather than lugging around a laptop, I am looking at a PDA or handheld computer or whatever they like to be called.
My main concern is to be able to ‘read’ all stuff stored on my desktop, including my saved explorer sites and doucuments and Outlook … in other words, connect to my desktop as if I as actually there ! I currently use a company called ‘gotomypc.com’, which I suppose I could continue to use when I get a PDA, but was hoping that technology may have moved on by now, and I could link up without having to copy and download all the stuff I may need when I leave the office.
Any advice as to a) which PDA to aim for ? and b) how to connect ?



I hope this all makes sense ?! but hope that you can offer some suggestions both on PDA’s and connectivity.



Please respond in layman speak, as I am not up-to-date with your market !

So once you return to your desktop, all e-mails that you have been working on your Acer, has been saved already ? How fast is it to send text e-mails on your acer ? would you recommend one or has new brands appeared ?

Can only do it with Connection to Computer unless you get blue tooth it's not Wi-Fi. You can also get a SD Modem for it. the only problem is the socket at the bottom that sink cable and power fits to is on the fragile side so grate card as to be used with it not to pull etc at angles or knock.

What about a 3G card? Not sure if these work in PDAs though?

WiFi & GoToMyPC together?

PS I updated the Destinator GPS and it's a lot better, more functions.
