BACKGROUND

One of the most promising computing platforms for wireless networking is the
personal digital assistant (PDA, including handheld and palm size devices.) In this
meeting we intend to concentrate on interface and application issues associated
with these platforms. We will be inviting key vendors to participate and to present
information in this area including Compaq, Microsoft and Palm.

In addition, we will be following up on ongoing PCCA efforts, including
wireless extensions to NDIS, sending AT commands to wireless modems via
IP protocols and our ongoing wireless interoperability workshops.
