X50v

The X50v retailed for $499 at the time of release. The v represented its VGA screen. The X50v remains one of the few devices to utilize the Intel 2700G 3D accelerator & video decoder with 16 MB video RAM. It allowed the device to render the 3D games included by Dell as well as others available retail. The device's memory has a built-in 128MB Intel StrataFlash ROM with 64MB RAM. The X50v shipped with Windows Mobile 2003 Second Edition but an upgrade was offered by Dell the next year to Windows Mobile 5.

While the X50 family has reached EOL, in mid-2007, an unofficial Windows Mobile 6 ROM for the X50v appeared[1]. This update requires the PDA to be upgraded to WM5 and then uses the bootloader to flash a WM6 ROM image from an SD card. The update works successfully and adds new features to the X50v.
