I recently got hold on a Dell Axim X51v PDA. I'm going to see how the device fits into my daily workflow managing tasks and appointments. The device runs on Windows Mobile 5 and has a really great looking 480x640 high-resolution display. Characters appear crisp and clear, a nice reading experience.
From the beginning I had problems using the device. The original firmware had a bug that turned off the device completely after a random amount of time. It is especially annoying if you're missing an appointment because the PDA decided to have a little nap. Strangely enough the updated firmware for my German device was only available on the Dell's English website. Dell's German web site has only the English version listed.
Now with firmware revision A01 the only thing that fails after some hours is the Compact Flash card. Unfortunately this is where I store my podcasts and the only thing that helps is to reboot the device. How could I recommend my roommate Silke buying this PDA?
I've found some tools that I consider indispensable to operate a WM5 device smoothly. Some of the built-in functionality isn't really usable, for example the task manager. As always Microsoft relies on third party vendors to enable better usability.
