PDA's were not designed to be used as remote controls. The IR transmitter is designed to transmit data short distances from one PDA to another. Most PDA's will require some type of IR booster in order to reach the distances that the Pronto can reach. That is the biggest difference. Also, you will need to purchase Remote Control software and install it on your PDA. The Pronto is already a remote control with its own software. One advantage of a Pronto is its popularity. Because so many people have them, there are alot of customized files out there that you can download and use or sample.

Some PDAs (Toshiba e800, Dell X3, Dell X30, ..) have natively a long IR range.
There are a lot of Pronto compliant software, like NetRemote or Total Remote. A Pronto compliant software allows to use any Pronto CCF file.

With NetRemote, you’ll be able to take full control of your home theater, TV, stereo from anywhere in your house, not just within 30 feet line of sight. NetRemote allows 2 way communication with any TCP/IP/WiFi PDA.

Last but not least, a PDA is cheaper than a color Pronto and has much more other features.
