Older PDAs typically used a combination of ROM (which cannot be edited) and RAM (which is volatile memory). If they lost all power, the user's files and programs would be wiped, and only the base software would be available. Newer PDAs and smartphones typically use Flash memory (which is non-volatile). If power is lost, these devices continue to hold user information.
A personal digital assistant (PDA) is a handheld computer also known as palmtop computers. Newer PDAs also have both color screens and audio capabilities, enabling them to be used as mobile phones, (smartphones), web browsers, or portable media players.

They are standalone minicomputers, pretty much like PCs before the internet.
Well, PDAs now have massive computing power along with a slick pocket friendly design that allows the user to make it more portable than other devices such as a netbook. PDAs do not have as much computational power as a desktop or even a laptop but there are good bang for your buck when you need a pocket computer. With that said a Smartphone can better adjust to somebody's needs.
