Enterprise Mobility: Dell Announces 10-Inch Windows 7 Tablet, Previews 2011 Business PCs
Dell flew a large crowd of executives and staff from Round Rock, Texas, to San Francisco on Feb. 8 to stage a preview of its new business desktop, notebook and mobile PCs for 2011. In a launch event the company described as the largest in its 27-year history, Dell introduced 24 new computers. They covered the full spectrum of computing, from workstations to desktops to full-size laptops to midsize and smaller notebooks to tablets and, finally, to mobile phones. That's not all for 2011, however; Dell promised to launch 15 more new devices by the end of the year. The largest new product set involves the Dell Latitude notebook line, which has been refreshed with seven new machines. The biggest news of the launch, however, was that Dell plans to release an Android Windows 7 tablet with a 10-inch screen sometime later this year. Dell didn't provide any additional details about the new tablet, which will face stiff competition from about 83 other tablets, including those from Apple, Motorola, Samsung and Hewlett-Packard.
