Who needs an IPad when this little beauty hooks you up?

Summary: This is the best money we've spent. Linked right up to our wireless and now we have the best of laptop, ereaders, memos, address books, appointments, and the net in a sleek, portable and very usable pocket pc. Microsoft pocket software, Word, Excel, Internet Explorer, comes installed and make it a breeze even for the user who isn't experienced. Pull down menus, touch screen and true wifi are all standard features.
Summary: I first bought one when they first came out -- was really impressed and used it daily at work. I later dropped it and Dell replaced it with a refurbished model. Turned out that had a weak spot on a corner where the case was cracked. I suspect it was dropped as well but it works fine if no pressure in placed on it in that area. I no longer have a work related need but I like these enough to get another and do use it frequently at home.
Summary: This is a excellent 'older' little hand held computer with quite a few features. The model is getting a bit old, but there are still many apps for it. Built in bluetooth and Wifi are great, especially for Skype and IM. With a lager touch screen than most mobile phones and 'basic' Windows interface it is easy to see what is on the screen and use. The SD slot allows for 2GB storage expansion and it can be used for reading ebooks.
Summary: considering the age of this old pelter, it is still one of the fastest pda's on the block. I was very impressed, the one I purchased was indeed new, old stock and still in the plastic. It is a tremendous improvement over the old iPAQ 2200 series pda that I had prior to this purchase, it runs the software much faster, and the screen is way better both in daylight and dark conditions.
Summary: I absolutely LOVE my Axim X30! I got the 64mb unit with WiFi. My primary purpose was to use it as an ebook reader. I got mine used - and it did not include the CD - so I can't sync it to my computer - so I am limited to programs I can download onto it. Thankfully I was able to download Mobipocket reader directly onto the unit via the WiFi (that I have in our home) I can now purchase ebooks and download them directly to my Dell over our wifi just like if I had a Kindle!
Summary: My daughter has had this same pocket pc for five years and it has worked wonderfully. It's just a very well built unit that will last a long time if taken care of. Very fast cpu and fast browsing on the net if you have a good wireless access point. Also accepts SD cards so you can add a lot of programs and/or music and use it as an mp3 player (although it is a bit bulky for a music player compared to the micro players available now). She also uses it for e-books.
Summary: Dell certainly knows what it's doing when it comes to computing, but when it comes to PDA's their not too far off the mark. All they need to do is add some more storage space and voila!, perfection. The Axim is "user friendly" all the way down the line. The active sync works just as one should expect. This makes the user experience so much easy. The Pharos GPS system demonstrates the lack adequate storage space in the Axim thus making the GPS difficult to use.
Solid PDA, super easy to use for not a lot of money.

Summary: I recently purchased the Dell Axim X30 PDA (312Mhz, WiFi, Bluetooth). It works so much better than I expected. It's super quick and snappy. Surprisingly, it has the ability to work with software that is supposedly non-compatible with it. I picked up a copy of TomTom Navigator 6 with a bluetooth GPS receiver, and the X30 works very well with the software.
Summary: This is a very excellent pda machine for its time. Meaning that when WinMobile 203 was released- I would gauge that this pda was the best that it has to offer. Now that there are pda's that have very large sdhc capacity sd-cards; this has been the bain of my ownership of this device.
Summary: This is a great product for the price that it is selling for on Ebay. With the intel 624 mhz processor, this PDA is faster than 99% of the smartphones out there. You can connect to the internet using a bluetooth connection with your regular cellphone. Also you connect your laptop to the internet using the USB or the Bluetooth connection via your regular cellphone.
