5Still Good in 2016, for a High Capacity (MP3, FLAC) Music Player
By Bob the Goat
I am glad they still sell this in 2016 and the price hasn't inflated to crazy high prices. I mainly like it because I can use it as an MP3 with high capacity SD cards (if you upgrade to Windows Mobile 6.1). I currently have two 128 GB sd cards in it, one is in a SD to Compact Flash card converter, for a total of 256 GB.

Now with 512 GB SD cards and 1 TB coming out soon, it's hard to believe that I may be able to eventually have up to 2 TB on a device that came out in 2005.

The best music app, I believe, is PocketMusic. It supports MP3, OGG and FLAC. It also supports custom playlists (which you can edit on the device) and other features if you like to listen to podcasts. For example bookmarking and the ability to skip forward 15 seconds and skip back 5 seconds if/when there are commercials. You can also set it up to resume where it left off when you exit and reload the app.

I remember waiting for years for before I found an Android app that had the same features as Pocket Music. The drawback is there isn't any phone that will support 2 TB of storage anytime soon (if you still like to play from your personal MP3/FLAC library).

Though services like Google Play Music and the All Access Pass ($9.99/mo.) is a nice bonus, though you do have to worry about your phones data caps. If you've got a good FLAC collection, there isn't a good way to store it on your phone, currently. The biggest microSD card is 200 GB and many phones are moving away from microSD card support.

4I was initially disappointed to discover that this was not exactly the same ...
By Robert H Gordon
I was initially disappointed to discover that this was not exactly the same operating system as my original Aximx51v. That meant that some of the older programs I had run on previous versions of the OS and wanted to run on this one were not compatible with it. This also meant undergoing the time consuming process of reloading each compatible program individually instead of simply restoring the entire system from a backup program made on an earlier device as I had done in the past, I was nevertheless satisfied with its performance once this process was completed and I would still recommend it.

5brand new really is brand new
I can't understand how the vendor is able to sell brand new Axim X51v units years after Dell discontinued making them. So, it seemed possible that what I would get would actually be a reconditioned unit. However, I recently received the unit and it gives every appearance of being brand new: the buttons snap a little stiffly for the first few days, no scratches or other signs of wear and tear. So, I am just delighted. It's back to 2006. My first X51v lasted 7 years. For me a pda is indispensable and with the Axim I knew that all my critical pda apps would install and run without problems. The accessories include everything I would ever need. Best purchase in years.
