Dell Axim X50v

PC Magazine
5 February 2006
  • Conclusion: The Dell Axim X50v is an attractively priced VGA Pocket PC that has excellent multimedia features and promises a great gaming experience. Developers: start writing those games!
  • Pros: Media Player 10 performance is amazing. New accelerated graphics architecture promises high-res gaming and video. Excellent value.
  • Cons: Few programs support new graphics architecture. Benchmark test show slower performance than other 624-MHz Pocket PCs. So-so battery life.

Dell Axim X50v

MobileTechReview.com
23 February 2005
  • Conclusion: An excellent offering from Dell at a nice price. The unit should suit power users and those who crave the VGA experience. It offers excellent expandability, dual wireless and enough memory to hold your favorite programs. Not only that, it's attractive and feels good in the hand.
  • Pros: Overall, a very good device. Attractive and ergonomic design, good price, VGA display, fast processor, both CF and SD slots with SDIO support for the SD slot, Bluetooth 1.2 and WiFi, has Windows Media Player 10 which unlike Windows Media Player 9 can play videos stretched to full screen (handy if you want to watch your QVGA movies full screen).
  • Cons: The buttons are too easy to press and the d-pad is a little small. Standard battery capacity is a lean: consider the extended battery. The screen isn't as nice or as large as the iPAQ hx4700 nor is current 2D graphics performance as good. But the Dell costs less and we may see driver improvements in the future.

Dell Axim X50v

Mobile Review
21 December 2004
  • Excerpt: Dell started its history on the PDA market with the model Dell Axim X5, which became the bestseller due to the low price and acceptable functionality, even despite of the large size of the device. In many respects this very model made many PDA makers to lower prices. Then there appeared a single-slot wireless solution Dell Axim X3, later on - Dell Axim X30. They also played the role in the pricing, however a less significant one compared with Dell Axim X5.

Review: Dell Axim x50v PDA

JusTech'n
17 December 2004
  • Conclusion: Dell has certainly found a great balance of power usage and performance with Axim. The power requirements have increased, but so has the battery capacity. The X50v is a bit expensive; at $450 it is almost as expensive as a cheap desktop. But you will note that the smaller you go the more expensive the equipment gets. You can of course wait a little while until the price drops, or you can look for coupons or discounts for your purchase.

7 March 2005
  • Summary: Компания Dell выпустила очень интересное устройство. Это первый КПК в свободной продаже со встроенным чипом Intel 2700G. По совокупности характеристик Axim X50v, безо всякого сомнения, можно отнести к топовому сегменту рынка. Достоинства этой модели очевидны. Превосходная производительность, наличие графического ускорителя, беспроводных интерфейсов и разъемов расширения.
  • Pros: хороший экран VGA-разрешения, непревзойденная производительность (особенно при декодировании видео), два беспроводных интерфейса (Wi-Fi, Bluetooth), два разъема для карт расширения, встроенный flash-диск существенного размера
  • Cons: слабый комплектный аккумулятор, неудобные кнопки быстрого запуска приложений и четырехпозиционный джойстик, ошибки в реализациях беспроводных коммуникаций (исправляется заменой прошивки)
