When Dell first announced in May that it would offer this operating system upgrade, the company said it wouldn’t be available until October.
It clearly expects to meet this deadline, as Dell says upgrade CDs purchased today will ship in another one or two weeks.
The upgrade can be purchased through Dell’s web store for $39.
Dell does not plan to release a Windows Mobile 5.0 upgrade for the Axim X30 series, or any of its earlier handhelds.
