Depending on the brand, the amount of memory and the style you are looking for; PDA’s can average in cost. To some people they are not expensive at all. While to others they sound too expensive to get. Basically a PDA that is good for the use of basic programs and optimizing word documents as well as other simple tasks the cost is lower.
However the newer models coming out now, with wireless capabilities, Wi Fi, and of course blue tooth will cost you more. It also depends on where you go to purchase the PDA as well. Basically the cost of a PDA can be anywhere from $99.00 to over $600.00. And after buying other accessories to go with your new PDA, such as a case or screen covers and much more, the cost increases a great deal. Don’t lose your breath this is true.
The newer you go with a PDA, the higher the cost is going to be. Some people want the best brand name, while others want good processor speed for a PDA. And yet there are still others who want to outdo their associate. This of course, is the one that gets the best of us. Unfortunately, there are people like that. But if they want to pay the cost, its their choice.
Sometimes you can find PDA’s at a cheaper cost, however it means buying a PDA that is used. And often times these PDA’s aren’t under any type of warranty and if something happens to go wrong, you pay to get the PDA fixed. When you purchase a PDA that has been refurbished, this means the PDA has either had a programming problem, a processing problem, or some other flaw. It has been repaired and now it is being sold as used. Most of the time refurbished PDA’s only last for a short period of time.
Not to mention the fact that there may be flaws in different programs on the PDA that you are initially unaware of until you go to actually access or use that specific program. So, the cost of the PDA you have purchased as being used will obviously increase as time goes on; or problems should arise. As a matter of speaking bluntly, you shouldn’t really buy a used PDA from a friend, if for some reason something goes wrong with the PDA it can ultimately end a friendship quickly.
There are some computer stores, that will sell PDA’s as well as other accessories that are in fact brand new, they will however sell them lower as part of a wholesalers price, whereas at a store where you won’t find as many products by the company would initially cost you more. It sounds confusing, however either way cost effective, when it comes to the purchase of a PDA that you want.
You can also buy PDA’s that are brand new on the Internet through websites, however the shipping cost and insurance on the PDA can be costly. This is something to take into consideration too.
