Dell waves goodbye to Axim

Pocket PCs are so 2002, darlin'

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Dell has quietly stopped selling its Axim X51 handheld computer, effectively bringing its range of pocket PCs to an end.

"The Axim X51 family is no longer being offered, and we have no plans for a follow-on product at this time," a Dell spokesperson told Cnet.

The computer giant had been a major player in the Pocket PC arena since the introduction of its hugely popular Axim line in late 2002. It later developed the model to include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi technology while keeping the price tag desirable.

But with the recent arrival of smart phones, sales of pocket PCs have dropped. There are rumours on various internet forums that Dell could soon enter the smart phone market.

Dell is still selling pocket PC accessories on its website.

MobilitySite had been saying for several months that Dell was planning on withdrawing its pocket PC range, and a comment posted yesterday morning about Axim's demise said: "It was a great run Dell, good job, but I think you guys are making a big mistake pulling out completely." ®
