My pocket pc broke and I need a new one.. What do you guys suggest? I want wireless internet. I had a Dell Axim that was great, but got stolen.. then I got a viewsonic hand-me-down that did the job, but the screen just broke..

Depends on what your needs are.... basically, anything you buy now (thats on the new market) will do everything and then some of what your old pocket pcs did. Its just if you want "bluetooth" or "wireless" or many other features that these may support. Heck, maybe even get the 640x480 resolution that they are supporting. Some are even starting to integrate good video chips which open up gaming. If you want the best price vs. value, the new Dell Axim 5v is bad ass.

Integrated Intel® 2700G multimedia accelerator with 16MB video memory holy crap, 16MB video ram, I didn't even see that part By the way, I'll pay for shipping your viewsonic if you give it to me to dissect, I'm big on taking things apart :)

Watcha need? I have a Belkin WLAN that I have no use for, all you need is a router that can assign a static, or DHCP and this will give you a nice WLAN for your new pocket pc :)

Sorry Fin..

I haven't forgotten about you, just clearing what I can do with this with the person that originally gave it to me...

You got World of Warcraft?

www.aximsite.com The trick, is to get beta player, its the only player out there that takes advantage of the 2700G (graphics chip) and will play movies at SCREAMING FPS rates, and very clear, they have example movies to download on that site as well. Just install the program, and then get the 2700G plug-in, and check out how nice it looks with something like a matrix trailer. I got some porn here and there, and there are some good divx encoding programs for ppc as well, dvd rips, etc., I got 2 GB of storage now :)

I think I might end up with a Dell Axim X30. I really wanted a smartphone, so I didn't have to take two devices, but I don't think there are any smartphones that I really want. The Treo 650 comes the closest, but lacks WiFi, and that's something I really want. I want something with BT and 802.11b, and the Axim looks like the best price vs. performance pocket device out there. If there are any other opinions, let me have them!

 Why would you bump a thread that's almost 6 years old?

You forget we go this far back and that you used to be cool to me......?
