Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Dell is preparing a slimmed down version of its Axim PDA, dubbed the x3, and has been scheduled for a 15 October release date.

So claims Brighthand, citing a variety of sources.

Essentially, the x3 is an x5 minus the latter's CompactFlash slot, removed to make the PDA thinner. The x3 will still sport an SD/MMC slot, which will also support SDIO for peripheral cards such as Wi-Fi adaptors.

Like the x5, two x3 models will be offered, one at 300MHz, the other at 400MHz. Which processor the machines will have depends on which source you talk to: some say Intel XScale CPUs, others point to the Samsung S3C2410 as Dell's chip of choice. Note that HP has chosen the latter for its new h1935 PDA.

Whichever processor Dell selects - and it might use both - the 400MHz model is believed to have Bluetooth built in. Both devices are expected to contain 64MB of RAM and 48MB of ROM. ®
