3 Big data security analytics techniques

Dell's Axim x3 PDA, announced last week and due to be released next month, will feature integrated Wi-Fi, according to Federal Communications Commission filings that detail the product's spec.

The FCC documents reveal the x3 is based on Intel's XScale CPU running at 300MHz or 400MHz, depending on which version of the x3 you buy. The 400MHz version ships with 64MB of SDRAM and 48MB of Flash memory. The 300MHz x3 has 32MB each of SDRAM and Flash. These specs. match those of the current x5 models.

Both models sport a 3.5in 240 x 320 16-bit colour LCD. In addition to the regular navigation and application buttons, the x3 features a voice record button to the left of the program buttons and a control to switch the wireless adaptor on and off to the right. All the buttons are arranged in a line along the front of the device, with the oblong navigation control in the middle of the row.

On the left-hand side of the x3 is a jog-wheel. The stylus fits into a slot on the right-hand side which opens out on top of the handheld, alongside the wireless antenna - which will not be featured on all models - infra-red port and the SD card slot.

Dell's documentation suggests the SD Card slot only supports memory devices. However, pictures of the machine's internals include a Bluetooth SD IO card, though this may be for form factor reference only.

On the back of the device you'll the speaker grille, the reset button and the removable rechargeable battery.

With the battery in place, the x3 weighs 138g (0.3lb). It measures 11.7 x 7.6 x 1.5cm (3 x 3.2 x 0.6in), so the x3 is lighter, shorter and thinner than the current Axim x5. ®
