I recently purchased a Dell Axim 51v running Windows Mobile 5.0.
It hasn't exactly been a breathless love affair.
I am disappointed at a number of issues still present by default in the PocketPC OS. I had one of the very first Jornada's. Then a later Jornada. Then I stopped buying from HP after they ditched the Jornada and decided only iPaqs would be upgradeable to the next OS.
I think I'll need to try out Magic Button from http://www.trancreative.com/mb.aspx to deal with one thing that continues to burn my bisquits: most default WM apps don't provide you with a "Quit" option. I don't want to keep all those programs running, hogging up resources. I want them to close. So Dell ships the earnest but buggy task-switcher. It sometimes stops working and it's on my suspect list of causing some recent problems requiring a soft-reboot (man, I reboot this thing way too much).
So I'll try the little magic button as a way to help those lingering apps exit and move on, but I really wish I didn't need it in the first place.
