Dell Axim X5

Until recently, one of the main criticisms of Pocket PCs was their high price. But this is not the case with Dell's Axim X5, which will be available in early February at £229 (ex. VAT; £269.08 inc. VAT) for a 400MHz version; an even more affordable 300MHz version will cost just £169 (ex. VAT; £198.58 inc. VAT). Impressively, both identical-looking handhelds are also well stocked with features, the top-end 400MHz version including a docking cradle. The Axim X5's one shortcoming is its size: this isn't the sleekest or the most compact Pocket PC that you'll find. But for the price, Dell's first Pocket PC is very enticing.
