Sorry to see that the Dell X51v was discontinued
I am saddened that the Dell X51v has been discontinued, and Dell has exited the PDA market. The X51v was an excellent Windows Mobile PDA at a very reasonable price. The X51v included:
- Windows Mobile 5.
- 3.7" VGA resolution screen that was very bright, crisp, and easy to read.
- Built-in WiFi and Bluetooth
- 624 MHz processor.
- Ample storage memory (app. 200 MB), and about 50 MB program execution memory which allowed many applications to be multi-tasked.
- A nice solid feel that was comfortable in the hand.
- Non-volatile memory so the contents were not lost when the battery had no charge.
- An optional VGA adapter with appropriate software to allow presentations on the X51v to be displayed on a video projector and / or for the X51v's screen to be mirrored on a video projector.
- Replaceable battery along with the option of a high capacity battery for extra time between charges.
I do use the Dell Axim x51v frequently, and plan for the X51v to be my main PDA when the Toshiba e830, with Windows Mobile 2003 SE, "jumps the shark".
I was a Palm OS champion for years, but switched to the Windows Mobile platform in 2005. My experiences using my Windows Mobile devices, and other electronic devices will be detailed in this blog.
