Dell Axim X5 Advanced

PC Magazine
6 October 2012
  • Excerpt: The hardware in Dell's two Axim X5 models (Basic and Advanced; we tested the latter) is identical to the hardware used on the original Pocket PC 2002 versions. The Dell Axim X5 is still a bit bigger than we'd like, but it remains a great buy because of its dual expansion slots (CompactFlash Type II and Secure Digital) and Dell's standard one-year replacement policy. The Axim X5 has an attractively tapered design, but it is still a handful for small hands.

Dell Axim X5 Pocket PC

Monster-Hardware
19 July 2012
  • Summary: With any PDA in this price range a few design compromises are required. For instance I would liked to have seen a the Axim X5 Basic ship with more memory, and built in wireless capabilities that some of the other Pocket PC have would also have been nice. What makes the Axim X5 remarkable though is that none of these compromises is truly a deal breaker.
  • Pros: Low price, Both CF & SD/MMC memory slots, Bright sharp screen, Good battery life
  • Cons: No connectivity solution included, Poor placement of SD/MMC card, Mediocre sound

Dell Axim X5

PC Magazine
8 May 2006
  • Excerpt: It's hard to find a better value in an entry-level Pocket PC than the Dell Axim X5. In addition to its hard-to-beat pricing, the Axim X5's Secure Digital and CompactFlash Type II expansion slots and its removable, rechargeable battery are attention-getters. The basic version ($249 list) has a 300-MHz Intel XScale CPU and 32MB of both RAM and ROM. The 400-MHz version ($349) bumps the memory up to 64MB of RAM and 48MB of ROM and adds a USB cradle.

  • Summary: It may not be sleek or glamorous, but with an expected price lower than competitors’ models, a great screen and superb expandability, the Axim looks set to revolutionise the Pocket PC landscape.

DELL Axim X5 PDA Review

iXBT Labs
4 August 2005
  • Conclusion: Conclusion. The Axim X5 is a very good choice for its money. It includes functions vital for a modern PDA (a lot of memory, expandability, high-quality color display) and some features which let us handle this PDA with ease (removable battery, two expansion slots, jog dial). The only downside is that it's a bit too massive. What I'm really fascinated with is rubber stripes on its sides: they hold the computer tightly in your hand.

  • Conclusion: En computer, uanset st�rrelse, er naturligvis aldrig mere v�rd end den software der k�rer p� den, og her har jeg v�ret s� taktisk at vente en m�ned ekstra for at f� en maskine med Windows Mobile 2003, der byder p� en r�kke klare forbedringer over sidste �rs udgave.

Dell Axim X5

CNET
30 November 2001
  • Excerpt: À l'intérieur, le Dell Axim X5 ressemble à beaucoup de ses concurrents. Son processeur 400 MHz, ses 48 Mo de Rom et ses 64 Mo de Ram sont typiques des tous derniers Pocket PC. De même, son écran TFT de 3,5 pouces et le système d'exploitation Pocket PC 2002 sont standard. En ce qui concerne les autres caractéristiques matérielles de l'Axim, il est doté aussi bien du slot d'extension CompactFlash que SD/MMC.
