Upcoming Dell Axim will support triband and wi-fi
Posted on 7-Jul-2003 08:09 | Tags Filed under: News



Although few details are available - as one would expect, PCWorld and a few other publications are reporting the entrance of Dell into the mobile phone market, with a voice-centric mobile device with data capabilities - a smartphone.

This smartphone will be based on the Microsoft Smartphone design, built upon the Windows Mobile 2003 platform. Note that I use Smartphone with capitals when referring to the Microsoft mark, and smartphone with lowercase when referring to a class of mobile devices.

"The next-generation Axim personal digital assistant will allow users to switch between Wi-Fi networks and CDMA or GSM networks. Due out in 2004, the device will likely support 802.11g, which offers backward compatibility with 802.11b and speeds of up to 31Mbps.

The Axim will also include Bluetooth to permit synchronization with client devices, including notebooks, said Anthony Bonadero, Dell's director of wireless product marketing. He spoke during a set of exclusive briefings arranged for InfoWorld at Dell's Round Rock, Texas offices this week."
