Like previous Axims, the $499 Axim X50v supports 802.11b Wi-Fi and Bluetooth 1.2 wireless connectivity. When the handheld recognizes a Wi-Fi hot spot, it alerts users and asks whether they want to connect. A button on the handheld allows users to suspend wireless capabilities to conserve battery life.
Fueled by an Intel PXA270 624MHz processor, the handheld has 128MB of ROM and 64MB of SDRAM (synchronous dynamic RAM), 139MB of which is available for users. The Axim X50v includes built-in CompactFlash and Secure Digital I/O slots for connecting peripherals such as scanners.
