I found treasure!
Treasure / a few dozen of these: New Dell Axim X30 Handheld | Dell UK
I've asked a few of the staff, no one has seen them before. They were in a box in one of the cupboards..mysteriously without a past. Never used.
All have Windows Mobile 2003 on them... anyone have any ideas what I could use them for? I don't have the heart to throw them

Give them to art to make some techy scupltures?

Wow, what a find. I supported a few staff that had these, and quite good they were too. Not cheap either IIRC. These days they won't be worth very much, in fact I can see them going on eBay for £20-£30. There must have been quite a few thousand pounds spent on these back then, are you sure no-one knows anything about them? It sounds like a bulk purchase for staff to me, but what a waste if never used!

I lusted after one of those, they were a great piece of kit. What a waste just being stuffed in a cupboard. Loads you could do with them.

I had one of these with TomTom installed on

Used to recycle a fair few of those in an old job. Not bad little machines to be fair!
However, that site you linked for them though, isº bloody® annoying© to®™ read© for℗ a reasn™ I can't quite® put my finger© on.

Funnily enough I found one of these in our server room recently. It's just finished charging so I might have a play.

Awesome. I love finding stuff.
I've recently been exchanging emails with a New York artist who created the buried trophies for an unsolved 30-year-old US treasure hunt called "The Secret".
Maybe you could hide them again, but with a trail of cryptic clues.

I've been playing around with one and to be honest I love the little thing, I just can't find a use for it! It's like a smart phone without the phone and not as smart
Internal message system? Can you still get apps for them?

Do they have the ability to turn them into barcode scanners?

photo frames, RSS Readers, you could turn them into a sign for your office door. (IN/OUT). I use an old Loox PDA to store my CD Keys and passwords as it has a pin entry making slightly better than a bit of paper.
