I am most disappointed. I haven’t had my new Dell AXIM x51v for 2 weeks yet and it’s out of commission. Yesterday, in it’s case, it was accidentally knocked from the table (~24 inches high) and the screen cracked. This is the third, count them, first, second, THIRD AXIM that has a cracked screen for me. (I’ll share a photo soon) I understand the first, a AXIM x3i, it was my daughter’s playing that damaged the used device. Whiff! The second one, an AXIM x30, was and still is a mystery. I had used it, placed it in my computer bag, and went to the office. When I arrived, I pulled it out and found a crack in the lower left section of the screen. Whiff! This third Dell, a AXIM x51v, was functioning okay and I was just getting it to where I wanted it (apps and settings installed, etc.). I had taken a note, put it in the cheesy slip cover that Dell provides and a minute later it fell the 2 feet to the floor. I couldn’t believe it! Worse yet, there is a district that is looking to purchase this very model anyday now, for student use! I’m thinking this is going to be a big problem. These things are handhelds, we all fumble from time to time, why are the AXIM’s so fragile?
On a related note, I still have my Palm Tungsten T2 that is now my old reliable. I wasn’t wild about it at first, but it has served me well between AXIM’s. Why have I missed this reliability? Oh, and if you are thinking whether my T2 has taken it’s lickin’, the answer is yes.
