Summary: I got this unit without any knowledge of how it really worked. Seemed fairly simple to download text and read it afterwards. I was unaware of a backup battery, aside from a main battery. The item description usually says "used" implying had a previous owner. Not much is said about the "backup battery" which runs low, regardless of a new main battery being installed.
Summary: If you are considering bidding on an Dell Axim X3i for its WIFI capability, then Great! I have 2 that I enjoy logging on Free WIFI sites (McDonalds, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, etc...)along with my WIFI at work. Here are a few suggestions on what to look for in an auction: 1)Make sure the condition of the BACKUP battery is NORMAL. If it is ABNORMAL, the PDA will have to be reset if the main battery is removed or drains out completely!
Summary: I bought the Dell Axim. I love the features, it is a mini replica of the laptop that I have at home. I especially love all the great catagories and files that it contains. What I dislike about the product is that I have to spend additional money in order to receive the full potenial of the Dell Axim i.e. I need to download a new back up battery and purchase a new main battery because the life span is almost over.
good pda if you find a good one that works properly

Summary: this is a very handy pda to have with the built in wifi you can connect almost anywhere, these days you have alot of places that has wifi from hotels to book stores to coffee shops, even Mc Donalds , very good to check email or just chat , i would say this is a great pda to own
Summary: I liked the ability to purchase the specific and exact replacement part that solves a common but not readily addressed issue with the Dell Axim X3 product. The backup battery was plug and play compatible with no modifications required at installation. The part came tested with pass criteria plainly marked on the invoice.
