Has it uses but reaching the end of life in many respects.
2 November 2012
Summary: This was a good deal I upgraded to wm5 and its working fine, the X50V is not much different than the 51 maybe just operating system so you can buy them much less in price. I recommend this model but basically your own your own no support anywhere and getting harder to find software sights for it.
Summary: I use it every day to keep track of my schedule, my contact list, and other lists of information that I need at my fingertips. I haven't been able to get WiFi on it, although I had an expert try. It does have some limitations, such as removing an automatic meeting notice when I made an error but maybe there is a way to resolve the problem if I look at the book. Otherwise, it is just what I wanted in a PDA.
Summary: This is not my first Dell Axim, and as long as I can find them, it won't be my last. I opted for a "smart phone" and put up my PDA, and found it wasn't so smart after all. With a Dell X50v, I have all the mobility, the web access, and the apps I need, and I never get interrupted, or lose unsaved work, by that annoying pop-up message about incoming calls or messages.
Summary: I am so happy with this PDA. I was able to find and download what I needed on my PC in-order to utilize it to it's full potential and quickly sync it to my Outlook calendar & email. Now I can take my schedule with me everywhere and avoid conflicts in scheduling. I decided to purchase this PDA after several weeks of reading reviews on different PDAs.
Summary: My nephew got an IPOD touch for Christmas. I admit, I was jealous. But as I played with my little Dell Axim 50V, I Realized that even though I could not make the Axim fart or take HD video, I could do things the IPOD touch couldn't. I could use a stylus to keep my calendar, and edit word and excel files, sync with outlook, and browse the web with Flash(Opera Mini works MUCH better) as if I were sitting at my PC.
Summary: The pocket pc was good and he said the battery was bad and need to replace. I bought the Dell Axiom pocket pc tow weeks ago and my only complaint is that the this unit need a new battery and I had a hard time finding the right one
Summary: The Dell Axim X50V is still a viable option for portable applications. I love the expandibility using SD & CF cards to carry important info that I encrypt.. Still has a a great display.... Very functional.
Summary: Love this thing! Why pay a hundred dollars a month for a smart phone, when Wi-Fi is everywhere, and you can get it for free. I keep my schedule, my e-books, my contacts, e-mails, chess and astrology programs on it. I even have a blue-tooth GPS receiver on it, and with Tom-Tom 7 maps installed on a 4GB card, I just use this little handheld as a fully functional GPS in my car. The VGA resolution is great, maps are clear and e-books are easy to read.
Summary: My last pocket PC was the Dell Axim X30. I'm not a power pocket PC user. I like being able to jot down notes and I frequently use the Pocket Excel for reading spreadsheet files. My requirements were any pocket PC with a color screen and Wifi. I bought my X50v used on eBay and so far I'm very happy with it. The battery life has been great even compared to the X30 which was also a good unit.
Summary: The device itself is fine however windows mobile 2003 is horrible! So make sure to upgrade it to 2005 or 6.0 or maybe run linux or try running android. Also expect to have to get a new battery when you get one of these. The one I got is close to mint condition but if you turn on the bluetooth in less then 10 min the battery goes from 97% to 70%. Also overnight on standby it lost about 15% of the power . If you do order a new battery make sure to get the extended version.
