COMDEX: Dell Jumps Into The Pocket PC Biz

Dell Computer Corporation first model, the X5, is based on Microsoft® Windows Powered Pocket PC software and is available in either $199 or $299 configurations after $50 mail-in rebate or $50 discount.

The $299 Axim X5 configuration is powered by the Intel® XscaleTM processor at 400MHz and offers 64MB of SDRAM, along with 48MB of Intel® StrataFlashTM ROM. The built-in Secure Digital and CompactFlash slots can host a number of devices ranging from 802.11b wireless adapters to memory expansion. A brilliant 3.5-inch transflective TFT color display is standard on both Axim X5 configurations, with 240x320 (QVGA) resolution. The unit's sync/recharge cradle (standard on $299 configuration) has an extra battery charge slot that accommodates either a spare standard battery (1440 mAh) or the available high-capacity (3400mAh) battery.

Users with lower memory and speed requirements can opt for the X5's $199 configuration, which has an Intel Xscale 300MHz processor, 48MB of SDRAM, 32MB of Flash ROM and a USB sync cable instead of a cradle, along with all the other features of the $299 unit. Both units will be offered with a wide variety of accessories, such as folding and snap-on keyboards and leather carrying case.
