Dell Axim X30 vs. HP iPaq H4150
September 8, 2004
| || | I am a college student
who needs a reliable PDA with a large screen. I need to have connectivity since all areas of the university are wireless, and I want to be able to use it with an accessory keyboard. I'm considering either the Dell Axim X30
or the HP iPaq H4150
. Which is best?
Both the Dell Axim X30 and the HP iPaq H4150 are solid choices. They feature Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, so you can purchase a Bluetooth keyboard to use with your PDA. The Axim X30, however, has a couple of advantages over the H4150. The display sizes are the same, but since the X30 is equipped with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, you can switch the screen to Landscape mode, which gives you more real estate with which to view Web pages and spreadsheets. Also, Dell uses Intel's latest processor, which sports a faster speed and battery-optimizing technology.
