Field Test Feedback Language issue Restricts PDA use by user Keyboard (large or small)/ input methods Learning curve will improve Coding of qualitative answers Copy & paste technique PDA’s accepted by respondents Better interviewer-to-respondent positioning Easily engaged than paper forms Quick, easy (excepting input method) Average 14% power usage over 2.3 hour use portable battery pack not needed
