    First of all, belive me: I´m not one to rant easily, but I have to say that the performance of my windows mobile 5.0 (on my axim x51v) leaves much to be desired. I hope that the you at MS understand that BT headset connection is vital in todays mobile market, all phones have had them for quite a while now and still nothing on ppc mobile.

    Of course a lot can also be dependent on the hardware but looking at the amount of problems people have with (examples: Async,BT,Storage Cards) the software I am inclined to hope that somethings are done to fix them…

    This is just a reminder for all MS bloggers who talk about the supperiority of the WM 5.0

    And to all a good end of the year!

    Zak, ppc phone edition supports BT Headset. The aim x51v is a pocket pc not phone edition. Why are you trying to use a BT headset with it?

    "Why are you trying to use a BT headset with it?"

    Easy, main reason: VoIP (or should I say Skype:),

    Plus: On the road I want to carry as litle as possible and a pair of "extra" wired headphones are (in my oppinion) very annoying to be carrying around. Especially getting them tangled up in a pocket….

    I would like to hear your oppinion about my other points as well

    BTW: Go have a look at aximsite and other forums and you will see that I am not alone in this frustration

    Zak – it looks like the X51v doesn’t have the BT Headset or Handsfree profile integrated into it which is why you cant support your BT Headset. Saying that – I’ve never actually tried a BT Headset with Skype on any other devices yet.. something for me to try over the Christmas break 🙂

    On the other issues – drop me an email and I’ll see what I can do to help.
