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.
Excerpt: The X51v has kept the same design as the X50 which is mainly a sleek piano black with a silver edge. It measures 73 x 119 x 17mm which is 1mm thicker than its rivals but makes up for this by having curved corners making it more �pocketable�.
Pros: Slightly larger screen than others on the market Good looking design
Cons: Slow performer Behind on features that other models already have
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: 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: 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.
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...
A worthy replacement of any PDA, even for Palm lovers

Excerpt: This was my first pocket pc, having shifted from Palm, and I instantly saw the familiar Microsoft features. The pocket office suite is very easy to sync with desktop office suites, and in my opinion is significantly nicer than Documents to Go.
Excerpt: The PDA with the fastest CPU on the market might be a big attraction, but in my opinion it's a pointless one - it has enough power to play games, but the small battery means you can't do this for long.
