Most if not all hand-held PDA's are synchronized with a computer or other device via a cable or docking station/cradle. Unless the hand-held device is using wireless technology the user must also take the docking station when moving to another place to synchronize, such as from home to work. This added component hinders the mobility of the hand-held device. Current solitions to this problem are costly, such as wireless LAN, bluetooth networking, or buying seperate docking stations for each location. This publication suggests the integration of the syncronization cable into the device itself using low-profile cabling.
