The Future of the Dell Axim

According to this article on Brighthand, Dell has several plans for the Axim over the next two years.

First, no more X30. According to the article, it will be discontinued in the next few months. Second, the X50 supposedly will be getting an upgrade later in the year, most likely involving WM2005. Third, in the middle of 2006, Dell will supposedly be replacing the X50 with a smartphone.

Quote:
In mid-2006, Dell intends to introduce its first cellular-wireless handheld.

This model will be targeted at business users, and Dell will emphasize its communications and productivity features.

This device will replace the Axim X50 series.

Nothing else about this handheld is known at this time, including what it will be called.

WM2005... now that would be fantastic! Thanks for the heads-up, Chaos.

Yea, the first step of a WinMobile 2005 device is great. But the part about replaceing the line with a smartphone is not so exciting. I was hoping to jump to the Dell line when they had WM2005, but this kind of makes me think twice.

No Smartphones for Dell

Sammy has a nice update on this in a Palm Addict post about an eWeek article. Seems that Dell is going to stay in wireless market, but no smartphone replacement of any Dell PDA line. Make me more interested in Dell pdas again. Especially with the news of a free WinMobile5 upgrade.

I'm curious to see if HP will follow Dell on the Free WinMobile5x upgrade being free. Everything I'm hearing so far indicates that they will charge for it (I just recently, ... oh, about three weeks ago, purchased an HP IPaq hx2755 handheld. It is definitely a culture shock coming from a a PalmOne T|T3.)

In any case, Dell was definitely on my list of comparisons when I was out a bit back to purchase a handheld. The x50v specifically. Seems that Windows Mobile keeps improving, which frankly, is what Microsoft needs to do in order to stay in the market. I just wish that the hardware was more even across both platforms (Palmone and PPC). That way people could more easily decide what they want by software alone, instead of hardware. /sigh/ It won't ever happen though.

HP will definitely offer upgrades, but no word yet whether they will be free or not. Same for Dell though. I don't recall any official statement that the upgrade would be free (and I kinda doubt it).
