PDAs PPCs And more

I recently got a new toy. A Dell Axim 650v. I have spent the last few days figuring it out and my wife has already started saying my Axim is my new girlfriend.

The Dell Axim is a Pocket PC. For the uninitiated there are two kinds of handheld device. Devices that use the Palm operating system and others that use the Windows Mobile operating system.

I chose the Dell Axim because for the power it packed at a bargain price. I was glad the device had bluetooth . What would I do with the bluetooth when I didnt have any other device I could connect to with the Bluetooth? It also had a infrared port which was great becaause my laptop has a IR ( infra-red port) too so these devices can talk to each other. The icing was that the AXIM came with Wifi connectivity. That thrilled me because I had a wireless network at home and I could probably us the dell to connect to the internet anywhere at home.

The AXIm connects to my Outlook at work and synchronizes my calendar. I use it a great deal to navigate my way through meetings and check the room numbers. The email option lets me pull up my inbox if I needed to.

So far I have used it to get weather at Potomac when ever I connect to the internet it updates automatically. I can compare the weather in Potomac to London, Stockholm, Kiev and Warangal.

I have two games that came with my Axim. I have two songs downloaded on the AXIM. I want to try watching a movie on the AXIM so I ordered a 256 MB Flashcard at Buy.com for a amazing price of $12.99. I plan to burn a movie and watch it. I will let ylou know how it went in a few days.
