    Bottom Line: The Dell X50v PDA is a powerful mobile device with a brilliant VGA screen. It does have some performance issues, but if you are in the market for a handheld should strongly consider the X50v.

    The X50v runs on the Microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition OS and comes bundled with the latest build of Microsoft Activesync software. The latest version at time of review, 3.7.1, fixes a few stability issues and includes a number of enhancements. According to Microsoft, it:

    • Enhances USB driver to improve connection stability and avoid crashes
    • Improves detection of cradled devices
    • Addresses issue with ActiveSync falling into guest mode repeatedly
    • Addresses issue where desktop fails to detect cradled device
    • Addresses issue where device and desktop report different connection states and sync does not start
    • Improves the reliability of large file transfers
    • Enhances Desktop Connection Wizard UI to make connection setup easier
    • Improves stability to reduce application level crashes

    Enigmo, Aspyr's puzzle game, and Fathammer's Stuntcar Extreme take advantage of the X50v's VGA display

    The PDA also comes packaged with a CD of two free games, Fathammerís Stuntcar Extreme and Aspyrís Enigmo. Both games take advantage of the X50vís high quality screen and speedy processor, though you will have to purchase a good sized memory card to avoid running out of space after installing these high-res, resource-hogging games.

    Besides the standard Microsoft software bundle, the X50v also comes with the new Windows Media Player 10 Mobile. Also included are pocket versions of Microsoft Word and Excel, and an Odyssey client that takes advantage of the PDAís wireless capabilities.
