Dell is rolling out the red carpet for their Axim X3 line and a new MP3 player later this week. InfoWorld is reporting that a source has claimed Dell will release two units, one high-end with integrated WiFi.
From the report:
The new Axims will come in more configurations, and the higher-end one will come with integrated Wi-Fi, the source said. Dell also slimmed down this new generation of Axims, according to the source.
Dell will almost certainly include the new Windows Mobile 2003 operating system on the new PDAs, a transition that didn’t go very well for the company earlier this year. A line of Axims sold after the June launch of Microsoft Corp.’s operating system featured buggy firmware developed by Dell, and a plan to release an update patch on its Web site backfired when enterprising Pocket PC 2002 users were able to find Dell’s patch before it was distributed and give themselves free upgrades.
Their source declined to give any more information. In a related story, at TechXNY, a Dell rep spilled all the beans to our very own Andrew. Unfortunately he’s not allowed to talk, on the site anyway, until we get permission. Dell’s doing a good job of teasing the media on this one…I hope it goes over as well as they think it will.
