As expected, Dell announced two new Pocket PC handhelds, breaking new ground for low prices at $199 and $299. Each has comparatively generous amounts of memory, built-in slots for CompactFlash and Secure Digital/MMC cards, and all the usual features that go along with Pocket PC systems. Very appealing – I hope the reviews don’t uncover some weakness, because these could turn the handheld market around.

By the way, don’t forget – if you install the software at home and office and buy an extra cradle, then the Pocket PCs can be a handy way to carry files from one place to another, and keep the address books and calendar in sync in two copies of Outlook.
