    I got the new Dell catalog in the mail today and it has the iPod on the cover! My first thought was that Dell obviously knows what a hot item this is. Any thoughts on future Dell/Apple alliances?

    You should scan in the cover and post it. It would be interesting to see. :D

    They've been selling them since I believe July. Also Good Guys, Target and Best Buy sell them too.

    I was mostly impressed with Dell positioning the iPod opposite the Axim handheld. Almost like distant cousins posing for a family photo or something. :p

    My dad got one of those. it's really a pretty nice one, as palms go. i wish it didn't have MS stuff on it, but i'm not about to cry about it.

    Thing is that dell is for a good part, is just a reseller. They build PC's, but all else is just resale. If they really wanted to they they could sell Apple CPU's. It probably won't happen, but they could do it.
    If Apple releases a new DLD Dell will carry it as well, which is a good thing...

    i saw a review/comparison of a few different pocket PCs on the screensavers on techtv, and the axim got the best review- clock speed, video playback, and price wise. it actually seems like a pretty decent product. although, i would rather have an iPod. :)

    Ha! TechTV, I remeber hen I used to watch that crap. They're just a big commercial.

    Regarding the Axim, I've heard lots of stuff, from "It's good" to "It's the suckiest peice of crap I've ever laid eyes on!" Haven't they had quality issues, forcing shipping delays?

    edit: I've yet to get my Dell catalog, it will be funny when I do!

    from a very low level of firsthand experience, and hearing what my dad says, it's not as sucky piece of crap by any stretch of the imagination.

    it looks pretty neato.

    I never said it was, I was just spewing what I read.
    Also, is it good for a handheld, or good for a PocetPC handheld? They're two distinct things.
