PDA outlook in UK higher/further education

A news item in the excellent weekly e-newsletter from the Electronic Book Web pointed me to a recent post on David Rothman's blog, which in turn pointed me to a recent briefing about PDA use and future prospects in higher and "further" education in the UK. Here's the direct URL to the 20-page PDF document: http://www.techlearn.ac.uk/NewDocs/PDABriefing.pdf. Ted Smith is the author of the briefing. Here's an excerpt to whet your appetite: "The report concludes that PDAs are important devices that can be used to enhance the learning and teaching environment....In US medical education, they are proving very popular, in part because large amounts of data and information can be easily accessed on the ward, and in part because physicians themselves are using them in their everyday work."
