About two years ago I bought my first smartphone. A “smartphone” is a combination of a mobile phone and a personal digital assistant. Buying a smartphone immediately made practicing law easier and more fun. It is by far the simplest way to bring your office with you without having to lug around big file folders or computer equipment.

The smartphone I currently use is a Motorola MPx200. It looks like a typical black, clamshell phone. There is no built-in keyboard; you can do all your typing on your computer. The phone synchronizes with Microsoft’s Outlook and lets me carry my calendar, telephone numbers, addresses, and to-do list. It costs about $200 (about half the price of the Palm Treo).
