Axim PDA Line Discontinued by Dell
MobilitySite confirms the news this morning that the final remaining Dell PDA model, the Axim x51, has been discontinued. Indeed, the x51 appears to be no longer available for ordering from Dell's web site or telephone sales department.
The Axim x51 line had been Dell's flagship handheld line as well as its most recently released model. The x51 was introduced in the fall fall 2005 (around the same time as Palm's TX) and is fully spec'd out with such high-end features as dual expansion slots, wi-fi & Bluetooth wireless, and accelerated ATI graphics.
If the report is indeed accurate, the this latest casualty would leave only Palm, HP, and a handful of smaller and/or lesser-known firms maintaining production of traditional PDA models.
