Posted in Dell by Reuben Drake on July 25th, 2011

It’s not everyday you see a 1920 x 1200-pixel IPS panel for your desk. Dell is offering just that with their new UltraSharp U2412M. It has over 2.3 million pixels with its 24-inch LED-backlit display and features in-plane switching (IPS) with a wide viewing angle, a 2,000,000:1 contrast ratio, DisplayPort and DVI connectivity.

There’s also a built-in USB hub, and height adjustability. Must be ultra expensive right? Not really. It retails for $399. Not bad at all for that price huh?

Dell Streak 10 Pro launching in China this summer

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on June 9th, 2011

Dell has confirmed its 10-inch Honeycomb tablet, the Streak 10 Pro along with another Windows 7 tablet for enterprise customers later in the year. Dell’s priority for this Android tablet is in developing countries though and it will hit China this summer over the US or even across Europe.

That may seem like an odd move, but Dell is number two in the market over there and they can get it out earlier because they don’t need to ship the tablet with the Google Experience over there. Dell sees China as having “more interesting” growth rates, faster adoption rates and “much more savvy” users.

Dell to unveil MacBook competitor XPS 15z on Tuesday

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on May 22nd, 2011

A leak has confirmed that Dell’s XPS 15z will formally launch on Tuesday. The 15.6-inch system had already been teasing us and its $999 price was already leaked. The WSJ also reinforces the notion that this will be a competitor to the MacBook and that it would be the thinnest notebook of its size “on the planet.”

The official teasers and leaks that we have seen so far show that the design is very similar to the 15-inch MacBook Pro, with it’s speaker grilles, aluminum frame with a black bezel, and a slot-load optical drive on the right, as well as other traits. It is expected to use Core i5 and i7 chips. Stay tuned on this one.

Dell ready to show 10-inch Android tablet in mid-June

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on April 5th, 2011

Dell may just launch its Android tablet, probably the Streak 10, ahead of the Windows equivalent that it also has planned. Word is that the Android tablet might be ready as soon as mid-June. That would be about three months before the Windows model would arrive, so we know which one everyone will buy. We don’t yet have the marketing details and the 10-inch tablet remains “unbranded” for now.

We don’t have many details, but we do know that Dell says it would ship with Android 3.0 and not the combination of Android 2.2 and the custom Stage UI that it currently uses on the Streak 7. And we can likely expect the same Tegra 2 chip from the Streak 7.

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on March 18th, 2011

Dell has announced the availability of their updated Inspiron R laptops. These Inspiron R laptops get a processor upgrade and now run on Intel’s 2nd generation Core i CPUs.

Dell Venue Pro arrives in the UK: £459 off contract

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on February 28th, 2011

Remember the Venue Pro? Well, it has been struggling to meet demand in the US due to some reworking, the nature of which is a mystery. But there’s good news for those of you living overseas. Beginning today, Dell’s UK store is taking orders for the unlocked slider for £459 (that’s $745).

The first deliveries are expected to arrive in 10 days. Let’s hope that they do. You’ve been waiting long enough, right? Germany is also getting the Venue Pro today for about €534.

Dell discontinues Adamo laptop

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on February 9th, 2011

Sad news for the Dell Adamo today. After aggressively discounting the Adamo 13 over the holidays and then again in the new year, Dell has given up on its stylish ultraportable. The Adamo’s biggest problem was its price-to-performance ratio, but it did sport some amazing design.

Hopefully Dell has something just as eye-catching coming soon, but if you still want the Adamo, you should still be able to get one for a bargain price at Dell’s refurbished outlet. However, I would hurry.

T-Mobile has confirmed the price of the Dell Streak 7 and that rumored $330 price was too high. T-Mobile will be offering the 7-inch, Android 2.2 tablet for just $200 on contract starting February 2nd.

That requires you to sign a two-year contract and send in a $50 mail-in rebate of course. You can also get the NVIDIA Tegra 2-powered, T-Mobile HSPA+ tablet for 450 bucks. Not a bad deal since the Samsung Galaxy Tab is still about $600 off contract at Verizon and Sprint. Will you be getting one?
