Has it uses but reaching the end of life in many respects.

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.
Cheap VGA device. Good for low light reading and MP3.

Summary: Affordable PDA with VGA display. It is one of the few legacy gadgets that provide a crisp, although small (way smaller than that of an HP 4700) VGA screen. The build quality is nothing to admire. Very light and plastic feel. Seals around the device are not very good. Dust can get in easily. Dell has discontinued support to Axim which were known to be buggy from its release.
Summary: The Dell X50v is an old product no longer manufactured, but for me it is a very handy tool. I do not have to be connected to the internet, and it isn't a phone. It works well for what I want to do.
Summary: This Pocket PC came in looking new and works great. I needed it for work because ever since smartphones arrived I have not had much use for one in my personal life. This one could last a very long time.
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: Not happy, it's slow and it doesn't hold the WIFI connection at work. I've had it for no more than a month and it's frozen. Removing the battery, doing a hard reset, nothing works. It will reboot about 85% of the way and stop. Not a good purchase.
