Ouch, that hurts what I've recently read on Pocket PC Thoughts. While everybody is excited about the new Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition, Dell alienates their current Axim customers! 8O

"Dell will deploy Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition in future Axim products. We have no plans at this time to offer Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition updates for current Axim X3 or Axim X5 products."

Furthermore Pat from Pocket PC Thoughts asks:

Is it just me, or does this make no sense? It can't be all that expensive or difficult to offer the option of an upgrade, especially if TOSHIBA will be giving the update away for free!

[...]

Like Pat, also I don't own/use an Axim anymore and it seems I haven't missed anything here... :-( That's a bad business decision and you - Dell - should reconsider this decision since your customers will lose the trust in you and further developments!

Cheers ~ Arne
