This post is in reference to the poor handling of my return merchandise call and Dell's inadequate customer service center.
Angry At Dell
The Dell Axim is one of the best deals for a Pocket PC I have seen in a long time.

I bought a Dell Axim after owning a Palm Vx for two years. I shopped around a lot, especially comparing the differences between the Palm OS and Pocket PC OS. I knew I wanted a color screen. The ability to play songs through headphones and 802.11b Wi-fi connectivity would be pluses.
I bought the Axim because it is the best PDA option right now. The color and design of the Axim and cradle are beautiful. I was glad to learn that I can input text in four ways: with the on-screen keyboard, by writing regular print letters, by writing Graffiti letters (perfect for old Palm users like me), or with a special transcriber that lets you write anywhere on the screen and then converts your handwriting to text (and it works fairly well.)
Another big selling point for me was the Compact Flash slot, which allows me to add hardware peripherals. I already ordered a Linksys 802.11b Wi-fi card so I can get on the Internet at home and on campus, and the Axim and Linksys card together will be much less expensive than the Toshiba e740 or any other wireless PDA. The Axim also has a Secure Digital memory card slot like most other PDA's.
I can sync my Outlook contacts, calendar, tasks, memos, and e-mail inbox, plus Microsoft Money. When the Wi-fi card arrives, I won't even need to put the Axim in its cradle to synchronize; I'll be able to synchronize over the wireless network. I have also installed Adobe Acrobat reader and an e-book reader.
I'm thinking about making my next computer a Mac, so I was glad to find out that there is third-party software to synchronize a Pocket PC with a Mac (pocketmac.net).
I don't like the feel of the Axim's buttons. The circular dial-pad seems flimsy and just doesn't "click" well. The scroll button on the left side of the Axim is also flimsy.

I finally got my Axim X5 from Dell recently and I simply love the thing. It met and surpassed every expectation I had. The price is incredibly low, and there's almost no trade off what so ever from devices twice the price. It's an incredible deal. The size doesn't bother me one bit, and it fits very well in my jacket pocket.
The Dell runs just about anything I can throw at it, and it does it at an incredible speed. Having used only a Jornada 525 previously, I'm amazed at the 400mhz Xscale. Pocket TV plays video so smooth it's plain incredible. Video easily plays 3x faster than my Jornada. Games run fast and smooth, not even a hint of frame skip. The buttons are responsive, easy to use, and support multiple presses at once. This is wonderful, as so many in the past have failed to listen to what gamers really want. Dell listened, and they did it right.
The screen is bright and clear, not a hint of anything less than perfection. Using headphones, the sound is loud and completely static free. It could easily replace my Nomad II MP3 player if need be. Too many people whine about the size... get over it. If you want an ultra thin device, this isn't for you. So simply move on and go whine to someone else. I myself am just fine with the Dell's size, it's price and specs more than make up for it. Anyone willing to pay more to get much less is missing something in my book. Size can be important, sure, but only to a point. The Dell is no bigger than the high end Ipaqs and is in fact much smaller than an Ipaq with a CF sleeve. What more could you possibly ask for.
Basically the Axim will run just about the same as any other 400mhz Xscale out there, which will run just about the same as any 300mhz Xscale out there, both of which will probably run about the same as any 200mhz ARM out there...

Before you buy the Dell Axim PocketPC, be sure to ask the seller what operating system it runs and what ROM version it has. Avoid getting one that runs Windows Mobile 2003 OS and has a ROM version of A04, which, according to many users including myself, is a defective configuration that causes tremendous slowdown. If you get one with WM2003, be sure it has a ROM version of A05, which is the fix Dell provided in Sept '03 to eliminate the slowdown. If you still want to buy a WM2003 A04 unit, be sure to contact Dell to send you a ROM update to A05 on CD (you can only get this update from the CD, and not via download). Dell also automatically sends this CD update to those who bought an A04 unit. So, ask your seller if he or she already got this CD from Dell. Of course, you can always order a new Axim directly from Dell, because as of now, Dell is only shipping the fixed, WM2003 A05 units.
After updating to A05 ROM, everything runs faster on the Axim. Programs like MS Reader and certain games like Hexacto's Bounty Hunter Pinball, which ran very sluggishly with A04 ROM, are much faster and much more usable. Browsing in File Explorer and contact list also no longer takes an eternity.
PocketPCs have become increasingly versatile the last few years. They are no longer just electronic address and appointment books, but devices that can run a variety of add-on software -- book readers, music players, video players, networking utilities, web browsers, GPS viewers, database viewers, etc. Their biggest advantage AND disadvantage, however, is their small size. Although much easier to carry than laptop PCs, their small screen size sometimes makes it difficult to view or to key in material. The miniature batteries that they use also are unable to generate long-lasting power.
