While Dell has been very busy Stateside launching all kinds of iPod rivals and consumer electronics goodies it has been a little more lethargic in Europe.
We are however at least seeing some new product including a trio of new microsoft PDA handhelds and its first ever LCD TV.
Set to launch in November the Axim X50, X50v and X50 416MHz are the latest in fairly successful microsoft Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition based Pocket PCs.
The top model (the Axim X50V) in particular looks like reasonable bet if you can still find a use for a PDA. It includes a 624Mhz Intel PXA270 processor, 3.7inch screen, 128MB of memory and both Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The price of around £350 is fairly reasonable too.
The £300 Axim X50 has a slightly slower 512Mhz processor and a 3.5, as opposed to 3.7 inch display.
At the bottom end the Axim X50 416MHz has, surprise surprise, a 416MHz processor and no Wi-Fi
Dell’s debut TV is a 26inch widescreen LCD model called the W2600. The set, which is finished in satin chrome and sports piano black speakers, is on sale now for £1207.82.
