“Power without price”

published 03/12/2003

ProCheap, powerful, versatile

ConsA bit bulky. Not as "cool" as an IPaq

OK, I admit it. I'm a technophile. I'm one of those people who believe something that has 20 extra buttons and 100 extra functions must be inherently better than something that doesn't. And so the time came to upgrade my basic, and, quite frankly, boring, Palm personal organiser (can't even...

Good

ProStable, full of features

ConsBulky, very expensive accessories

I wanted a PDA for some time, because its like a laptop but smaller and more efficient, especially for somebody like me who has probably has the worst short term memory and is hence completely dependent on technology. After having gone through what's on the market I finally decided on this nifty...

“Sexy AXIM X5”

published 10/08/2003

ProEase of use and functionality

ConsNot compatible with Outlook Express

I just got my Axim about a month ago, upgrading from my Palm device and the first thing that struck me was the overall design - it’s a sexy little beast. The PDA itself is a sleek silver colour, black sides with function buttons that are etched and so won’t fade. The cradle is made from a smoky...

“GOOD FOR GIRLIES!”

published 20/01/2004

ProStylish and handy for a girlie!

ConsNone, I love it.

A Girlie Point of View! Ok, so I am a girlie writing about something electronic. But I felt my Dell Axim 5 had to be written about. My husband had told me that he had bought me a combined birthday and Christmas present and that it was going to be delivered the next day. Did I want it now or wait...

“you won't go wrong”

Progreat screen, fabulous software, accessible custom...

Consa little bigger than normal

you won't be unhappy with this pda. My only word of caution is that if size is really important in the sense that you need something small, you're not going to love this unit. but if you need to do writing or spread sheets you will. I use it most for writing reports, fiction, journalistic, all...
