A company whose specialty is Web-based distribution of engineering documents has come out with a wireless access module designed for handheld computers.
PocketDocs, from eQuorum, Atlanta, lets handheld PC users access, view, markup and print documents stored in eQuorum's ImageSite data storage facility. Drawings can be panned and zoomed, but only the viewed parts of the images are transmitted, minimizing wait time. Handhelds also can link by modem or digital cell phone.
The $7,500 module costs more than the $7,225 base price of ImageSite. Free, full-function, 10-meg trial sites are available at www.equorum.com.
