I am getting a little anxious this weekend. I will receiving my Dell Axim X50v this Monday, and this will be my first in-depth experience with a PPC device. I have had PPC acquaintances before with a few iPaqs and a Dell Axim, but this will be the first time that I will use it as my primary handheld for any length of time. In previous encounters, I just casually went through the basic features of the PPC devices with a less-than-impressed feeling with the usability of any of them. I realize things do change, so I thought it was time to look at a PPC device, again. This time, I plan on looking deeper into the PPC experience by making it my primary device while I try to optimize the device for my personal use. I realize this will take extra time up front because I am not as familiar with the PPC devices and their nuisances, but I plan to give it an honest attempt without making any early judgements based on the less-than-successful experiences that I have had in the past.

Just to give you a liitle background on my handheld experience, I have been a faithful Palm OS user ever since the original Palm Pilot became available in 1996. Here is my historical device ownership record:
  1. Palm Pilot
  2. Palm Personal
  3. Palm Professional
  4. Palm III
  5. Palm IIIx
  6. Palm IIIxe
  7. Palm M505
  8. Palm M515
  9. Sony Clie T665C
  10. Sony Clie NR70V
  11. Sony Clie NX70
  12. Palm Tungsten T
  13. Palm Tungsten T2
  14. Palm Tungsten T3
  15. Tapwave Zodiac 2
  16. Palm Tungsten T5
I was sold on the Palm with my first device. I believe it to be a simple, yet powerful solution for the busy lifestyle led by so many people in today's ever-changing world. It provides order in the chaos, and it does so in an unobstrusive and natural manner. I support over 70 Palm users in my company, and most users took advantage of its power within hours of getting it setup on their computer. The solution provided by Palm just works right out of the box. In fact, there is very little support needed after the initial setup of the device.

As you can tell, I have a strong Palm background, and I do have a strong bias towards Palm and the solution they provide. Thus, I will have to make a conscience effort to make a fair assessment of the PPC experience. I realize it will not be easy, but I owe it to myself, and others out there like me, to look honestly into the solution the PPC platform provides.

Since I am a little behind the power curve on the PPC platform, any support from experienced PPC users is welcome. To share any information with me, just click on Contact Me at the top of the page.

Thank you, and I look forward to sharing my experience with you over the next several weeks.

Best regards,
