SANS - Survey on application security programs

Dell will today update its Axim PocketPC line with faster Intel processors, Microsoft's Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition and broader wireless support.

Dell Axim x3iThe new machines, together labelled as the x30 series, are based on Intel's PXA270 processor, aka 'Bulverde', clocked at 312MHz and 624MHz. While the former is numerically lower than the 400MHz PXA255 inside the current x3 line-up, Intel claims the 312MHz part is equivalent to a regular ARM-based CPU running at 520MHz, so users should see a significant speed-up. Intel claims the 624MHz version runs as fast as a PXA255 clocked to 775MHz.

PalmOne's recently released Zire 72 is also based on the 312MHz PXA270.

Dell currently offers two x3 PDAs and the wireless x3i. The x30 line-up will include two wireless devices, both with Bluetooth and 802.11b Wi-Fi, like the x3i, Brighthand reports.

All three x30s will feature the usual 3.5in transflective LCD, which can now operate in both portrait and landscape modes, courtesy of the upgraded OS. The devices use the same casing as the x3 and similarly sport an SD IO slot and 950mAh rechargeable battery. Memory configurations are not yet known.

Prices start at $199 for the 312MHz non-wireless version and $279 for the wireless model. The 624MHz wireless x30 will cost $349. ®
