Dell Axim X30 vs. Palm Tungsten C
      #13673 - 07/24/04 06:18 PM

First off, what I mainly need this PDA or Pocket PC for is to check the internet when travelling and to play games (as you can probably tell, I'm no business man). Also, WiFi is a must which both of these have.

Now, the main concern I have with the Dell Axim X30 is compatibility with games (Kyle's Quest 2 being one that I really want to play). Since it's a new OS (well sort of), I'm not 100% sure it'll work with everything, and contacting a game dev to fix their game for the new OS doesn't always work very well. Therefore, the Tungsten C would be nice since it is a PDA and I've heard there are far less problems with compatibility, errors, and crashes (at least when it comes to games).

So I guess you're thinking, "well if the Tungsten C can play more games, why aren't you going with that?" Well for one, the extra features of pocket PC's is tempting, and I'm guessing that Pocket PC's will have a longer life than PDA's (no, not battery wise).

Basically the only thing stopping me from getting the Dell Axim x30 is the fact that I may try to get a bunch of games only for some of the best ones to crash or not work on me. So, does anyone have any experience with either or both of these devices and can anyone tell me which best suits my purposes?

Thanks.

EDIT: Forgot to mention that I also need it to browse the internet and such while I'm not at home too.

There are actually quite a few RGPs on Pocket PC as well as on Palm. Check out these ones:

And yes, KQ2 runs on PPC as well.

I have a Palm Zire 72, but have the option to return it and go with a Pocket PC, Dell...
I've heard good things about the Axim 30...I'm curious where you, Jinxmasta are ordering your Axim30 from, and what price you're getting it for? I'd be using it for pretty much same as u, but not gaming...lemme know...

dell currently has 15-20% off deal going on for the axims. Just ordered an x30 with wifi for about $220. This would be the 300mhz model, not the 600 one.
