My fellow MVP and good friend Todd Ogasawara from MobileViews took the time to review the brand new Dell Axim thumb-board and compared it with the Jornada and iPAQ solutions:

It took a while for the thumb keyboard concept to win me over. But, it did and my opinion now is that any Pocket PC I use regularly must have a thumb keyboard option. However, thumb keyboards are not all alike. This review takes a look at the three I’ve been using and makes a plea to thumb keyboard designers to do a better job (and take a lesson from the defunct HP Jornada design team).

The three thumb keyboards reviewed were all purchased from the Pocket PC’s manufacturer (Compaq, Dell, and HP). The Pocket PCs used for testing were a Compaq iPAQ 3850, a Dell Axim X5 Advanced, and an HP Jornada 565.

Like for Todd, also for me the availability of thumb keyboards are pretty important as it helps in many situations to enter texts faster then using the stylus; a concept which even Microsoft recognized with the recently introduced Hitachi Multimedia Communicator.

Cheers ~ Arne
