Dell orders 1.5 million PDAs

— 5:57 PM on July 30, 2002

Acer has won a contract to build some 1.5 million PDAs for PC giant Dell. Dell's PDA will be based on Microsoft's PocketPC operating system, and is set to retail for just $299. You can probably expect Dell to offer all sorts bundling deals, which could also include Dell-branded printers.

Low prices and special bundles could give the Dell PDA a huge advantage over PocketPC and even Palm-based competitors in mainstream and enterprise markets. This, combined with PDAs based on Palm's new OS could be just what the doctor ordered for slumping PDA sales.
