Replacement for Dell Axim x51

by jan_cnet / September 30, 2011 7:09 AM PDT

I am looking for a replacement for my x51.

I am primarily interested in a faster hand-held computer with wi/fi capability..

I would like it to have a sim card so that I can use it a a cell phone with Consumer Cellular . They told me that it must have a sim card compatible with the AT&T system.

I would also like it to have a camera.

Any ideas on what might fit those desires?

Thanks, Jan

While I write/maintain apps for Windows Mobile, Microsoft killed off WM cell phones last year. If you don't find one today, there won't be one tomorrow.

It doesn't have to be a WM-based unit. I just want an up-to-date hand-held PC with camera and sim-based phone.

Sorry, you'll have to spec this much better.

The Apple iPhone is sim based and is far more than the original Personal Computer that we started with in the 1980's.

In reply to: "PC"

My cell service, Computer Cellular, says that their system requires an AT&T compatible system with a sim card. I want a reasonably fast cpu (1.5 up) with at least 64gb of memory and the ability to connect to my windows desktop pc. I want to be able to run Word and Excel or Open Office. I would like a camera. I will only use the phone for talking as I do not text, Twitter, or other social network. I would like a sd or similar card slot. And I would like the total cost to be under $500. There are so many devices out there that I am overwhelmed with trying to analyze their capabilities. I want a device that is a pc first with a phone second and a camera third. If you could point me to 2 or 3 devices, I and compare the details myself.

Thanks, Jan
