Mobile Computing

back to HumaniNet ICT Information Service

The links in this section focus on Mobile Computing.  As mobile devices continue to evolve, we will present information on PDA's and netbooks.  These mobile devices can be used as information communication technology (ICT) tools to aid the productivity of NGO's. Access methods will include dialup, wireless and satellite.

NGO's often face unique power, size and environmental challenges when working in areas with limited communication infrastructure. Mobile device productivity is multiplied when complemented by the right applications.

Please check out the Mobility Portal, created by Vern Gillespie and Larry Bentley, for an overview of promising PDAs, small and low-power PCs, software, ruggedized cases, and more.

As always, we welcome your ideas and input on this topic. You may contact us at
