Dell has communicated their awareness of the situation, and says that the problem has been fixed. If you have recieved one of the affected units, you should contact Dell to arrange a fix or replacement.
Razor Zayo selling for $199
The oft-overlooked Razor Zayo PocketPC is available from MobilePlanet.com for a price of $199 plus shipping. Though it’s been fairly well ignored, the Zayo is one of the few ultra-compact PocketPCs that also offers a full featureset, including 64 MB RAM, a 400 MHz processor, metal case, and optional CompactFlash sled. Despite using the older PXA250 processor, the Zayo is consistently one of the highest ranked PocketPCs for speed in benchmarks.
