Dell Drops Axim PDA
Dell today marked the last chapter in its Axim handheld line by quietly removing the last of the handhelds, the x51v, from its company store. The Axim line was one of the most popular PocketPC (and later Windows Mobile 5) devices upon its launch in 2002 due to the abundance of features for the price, but was gradually eclipsed as media players, smartphones and similar multi-function devices took hold.
Support for existing Axims is likely to continue. A new PDA or smartphone successor has been rumored but isn't expected to see an actual launch in the foreseeable future. [via Mobility Site]
