Halacha - Using Palm Pilots with Judaica Texts
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh

Generally speaking one should not hold things, especially fragile and valuable items while davening because worrying about them could easily be distracting and it is not the way one would typically converse with the King. However a sidur is an exception to this rule because it is for the purpose of davening correctly, and I see no reason to differentiate between a digital and paper version. This seems to me a beautiful example of technology being used to serve Hashem.
