Dell's Axim X3 personal digital assistant has both a Bluetooth and an 802.11b chip.

Dell's competitors in the PDA market, such as Hewlett-Packard and Palm, introduced several models with the technology built into their PDAs in 2003.

Dell had planned to include Bluetooth in one of the first X3 models unveiled in October, but decided to hold off and offer the more expensive version of the X3 with 802.11b wireless only.

At the launch of the X3, Dell's second-generation Axim, a Dell executive said that most of the demand for Bluetooth devices has come from Europe and the company would, eventually, offer a Bluetooth device.

Information about pricing or availability was not specified, and a Dell spokeswoman was not immediately available for comment.
