For My Cousin's Christmas Present

Postposted on Wed Dec 17, 2003 6:18 pm

It's that time of year again, and this year I wanted to buy my cousin a PocketPC. She's been wanting one for a long time to use in her school. Currently my budget is $399. I want to find a PocketPC 2003 with at least a 400 mhz processor, integrated 802.11b, and at minimum a SD slot for expandibilty. Currently I saw the IPAQ H4155, which had bluetooth, 802.11b, and a fast 400 XSCALE processor sold for a little over $400, but it has everything. My other thought was getting a Dell Axim X3i which cost about $350. Which should I get? Anybody got an idea for a better PocketPC for my budget and the specified features? I was planning to give it to her, before she goes back to school. :roll:

One advantage I see of the Dell Axim is it's battery life.... Here's the choices, that IPAQ or and Dell Axim 3Xi with a 1800mah battery which cost about $430 after 10% break. Should I get the Axim? Or should I get the IPAQ?

For that price I'd get this non-pocketPC :D http://sonyelectronics.sonystyle.com/mi ... /tg50.html (palmOS 5) or the Sharp Zaurus SL-5500 (linux)...

...but if the guy wants a pocketPC... ;) go for the Dell. The biggest problem I see in most pocketPCs is battery life. It sucks big time when you have to ration the battery.
