Summary: Great little tool for installing random stuff on it that you'll need on the go, such as any of the many GPS navigaton kits out there. Powerful processor. Battery life is sorta shitty, ActiveSync fucking sucks (that's Microsoft's fault, not Dell), and starting to get obsolete due to PDA phones.
Summary: I am very pleased with my Axim X51v. The screen is big and very clear. The memory is more than most on the market and does everything I need quickly and without lag. It has two expansion slots, one of which accepts multiple types of cards. Sync with my computer is easy and fast.
Summary: Comments about Dell Axim X51v: I paid more for this hand held which is great but it doesn't have anything more than a cheaper brand would have, also the 600+ processor chews up the battery in no time, so you have to set it on the lowest setting for speed to save battery life (which is OK but if I...
Pros: Bright Screen, Compact, Easy Controls, Good Compatibility With Other Devices, Lightweight, Useful Features
Cons: Processor vs speed issue, Short Battery Life

Summary: Most would love this as its compatible with Office and has many great extras which can be bought or found online. Internet surfing and blue-tooth is fantastic which is also good on Osx found device and PC alike.
I've had PDAs before, and nothing this bad. Do yourself a favor and try another brand.

Excerpt: This PDA is like a real Dell PC running Windows which includes bugs, hangs, and crashes! It's bad. After all the patches that were both required and not required, it still performs like a computer from the 90s. Takes forever to boot up.
Excerpt: This item was bought to use for navigation when walking. I use digital mapping and have used many different units for the mapping, some better than others. This system is a general PDA and so not the best for taking out on hikes like the Garmin or the Satmap but still does a good job at it.
Excerpt: Probably the most useful gadget I have ever owned! Seriously! My Axim X51 has the PXA270 processor running at 416MHz with 64Mb RAM and 128Mb ROM. What this all means is that it is surprisingly fast and handles most tasks easily.
Excerpt: Handheld computers or Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs) were quite popular a few years ago as an extremely portable device that could allow you to send and receive e-mails, work on office documents and have a personal organiser all in one device that you could carry around in your pocket.
Excerpt: Right out of the box my axim was working perfectly. Although I had a few difficulties working out how to connect to a network, once you know how to do it it is relatively easy. The microsoft office 6.1 works well however if you are intending to use it for large scale word processing then I would...
Excerpt: Great handheld with a brilliant screen and very fast processor Pros Dedicated graphics card means it can run the most advanced games for Windows Mobile. Very fast processor is capable of running anything thrown at it. Very clear screen, was one of the first with a VGA 640 x 480 screen.
