Dell Axim X51v 624Mhz

7 July 2012
  • Summary: At this point Dell is no longer making the Axim, so users looking for lots of manufacturer hand holding are not likely to receive that here. If you are a do-it-yourself type of guy, though, most all the support you should need is available on the internet.
  • Pros: Very good level of performance, Actual VGA not QVGA graphics, Good looking 3.7" screen, Both CF & SD memory slots well placed, Low price (refurbished unit)
  • Cons: Mediocre battery life, Questionable memory card compatibility, Mediocre sound

14 July 2006
  • Excerpt: Many users have axed, I mean "asked", Dell for an upgrade to the Axim X50v. Well, now it’s here! While the most popular Pocket PCs these days include phone functionality, Dell has decided to aim their PDAs more at business and media/gaming markets with their powerful Axim line.

Dell Axim X51v

16 June 2006
  • Conclusion: As always, Dell offers an excellent machine at a relatively low price. The unit runs the fastest CPU and has a VGA display which will suite power users. It offers excellent expandability, dual wireless and lots of memory for storage. Your data is safe even if the battery runs down.
  • 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, WiFi 802.11b and VPN support.
  • Cons: WM5's persistent storage architecture means that the device is a bit slower launching programs than older Pocket PCs. Standard battery capacity is lean: consider the extended battery.

Mobile Review
1 June 2006
  • Summary: Dell X51v is an update of the previous model. Main changes are double flash-memory capacity, new Windows Mobile version, replaced Bluetooth drivers. Positively, battery life got longer due to new memory organization in WM 5.0. In other aspects we have the familiar Dell X50v.

Expert Review

12 January 2006
  • Conclusion: Conclusion All in all, a very impressive device. The graphics, especially in the 3D department, is as good as it gets. The software in the bundle is quite extensive and includes both full and trial versins of some nifty applications, including games.
  • Pros: Windows Mobile 5.0, 256MB ROM, VGA Screen, Dual Memory Slots (CF/SD), Better Battery Life than X50V, Intel 2700G graphics accelerator, Same Sexy Design as X50 series, Nice bundle of included software
  • Cons: Battery life was a dissapointment, No Jog Dial, Little need to upgrade. With the ability to upgrade X50v to WM5, current X50v owners only real gain is 128MB of extra storage, Minor issues with WM5 (not really Dell's fault)
