The purpose of PDA Surfing -- Link a Day is to provide readers with at least one PDA friendly web link per day that they can surf on their SmartPhone or Pocket PC.
Over time, there will be a long list of useful links with reviews to sites that are specially formatted to work on tiny screens.
Today's Link is:

MobilePlanet Shopping
Rating 7/10
Category: Palm/Pocket PC
Description: MobilePlanet (aka PocketGear) gives you the ability to browse products and make purchases with your Palm or Windows CE powered device. You can browse and buy hardware, software and accessories. It gives you descriptions and allows you to preview product images. I'm not sure how this would work for buying except as a convenience if you already know what you want. The images are too small for much detail and the descriptions too short. However, it could prove handy for doing comparison shopping and pricing while you're in a bricks and mortar store. Of course, you need to have a wireless internet connection. I wonder how it works on a smartphone? Anyone willing to try and report back here in the comments?
