Idea: IR Port

Generally in PDAs having an IR port means you can sync the phone wirelessly (though usually with only short range and slow speed).

Other uses though include being able to use Infrared Keyboards and Remote Control TVs, Stereos and other devices with IR remote control ports. Often times there are software programs with libraries of IR codes, as well as the ability to program the IR codes from a remote control that works with that device (by pointing the original device at the IR port on the PDA as if it were the reciever, selecting that button on the PDA in 'Learning Mode' and then hitting the button on the original Remote itself to send the signal to the PDA which records it for future use and association with that function). IR Keyboards and other IR devices often require that the PDA has the appropriate driver installed.

Note that all use of the IR port must be line of sight, since that is how Infrared Technology works. The signals can be bounced though by mirrors, if desired.
