Today is the world of computers as every field is dependent on it. The computers have not only enhanced the efficiency of the work but offer top notch results as well. This is the reason that computers have become an important part of our lives and it is difficult to live without them. Although we consider the computers to be technological marvels, the desktop computer could do many things for us, but if we want computer like assistance as a mobile device, we need a compact hand held computer with processing power, keypad, display and a mini built-in printer. The versatility and portability of a handheld computer makes it a great potential resource. Handheld computers vary considerably in their specifications and performance. The paper focus on few basics about the hand held device which is developed in the research lab.
