Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on November 7th, 2010

Of course you want the Dell Venue Pro, with it’s slide out QWERTY keyboard and it’s 4.1 inch touchscreen. You are drooling over it. It’s okay, wipe that chin. We understand. Thing is, you’ll only be able to purchase it at one of only seven Microsoft retail stores on November 8th or at the Dell.com website on November 15th.

Unless you work for Dell and want to trade in your Blackberry. While the information about the release is just a leak, it is looking to be spot on. You won’t have a very long wait either way.

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on November 5th, 2010

Dell is offering to trade employees’ old and broken BlackBerry devices for the new Venue Pro. That’s pretty generous of the company and if everyone takes them up on the offer, there will be 25,000 RIM smartphones out of a job.

It is not just nice to do, its good for business. The Wall Street Journal says that this will cut Dell’s mobile communications bill by a full quarter, as they will no longer have to support BlackBerry servers. In other news Android variants will be made available in the future as well.

Unfortunately, the FCC filing doesn’t give us any other details. For T-Mobile customers, there’s rumors that the Venue Pro could launch on the network November 8th, when AT&T will be busy launching their own Windows Phone 7 handsets.

Dell’s upcoming Looking Glass 7-inch tablet wasn’t showing off in pictures when Michael Dell took it out the other day, but now a video of the event has surfaced, so we now have a better look at this Android device.

Michael Dell shows off new 7-inch Android tablet

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on September 22nd, 2010

Michael Dell loves to tease. Word is that Dell’s big cheese has just pulled out yet another Android tablet from his very large and mysterious pocket. This time it’s a 7-incher. Mr. Dell didn’t let loose any dates and specs, but this could be the long-rumored Looking Glass.

Dell also announced that the smaller Streak is heading to Best Buy next month. We hope that this bigger tablet won’t disappoint us with an outdated OS this time.

Posted in Dell by Shane McGlaun on September 17th, 2010

If you are a gamer that has the video card muscle to run really high resolutions like 2560 x 1600 that the average 30-inch LCD supports there are few things better than playing with such high res graphics. A big 30-inch screen is also great for those who work or play with lots of windows open too.

Dell has announced that it is now shipping its latest 30-inch LCD with an IPS panel called the U3011. The display has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio and that contrast ratio is 100,000:1 dynamic. The screen has the 2560 x 1600 resolution you expect for a 30-inch panel and a 7ms response time that will make gamers happy.

Doctors to use Dell Streak Tablets when treating patients

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on September 15th, 2010

The Streak is a lot more portable than the iPad, but you still can’t call it as pocket-friendly as the iPhone. Nevertheless, Dell wants to fill up their Streak with a healthcare software app.

Dell has a good reputation in the medical world already, but with the Streak Dell aims to get in even deeper, giving the tablet to doctors to test later this year. The dual cameras will be useful for recording the patient’s progress, and using the app they can update their electronic medical records.

Dell’s Inspiron Duo is a 10″ Netbook/Tablet that swivels

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on September 14th, 2010

The folks at Dell are crazy, throwing all kinds of ideas out there and seeing what sticks. Dell’s new Inspiron Duo is a 10″ tablet that opens up and swivels its screen to transform itself into a netbook. But what’s the point? Why swivel when it can just detach? This is just tablet madness.

They’re saying it will be available before the end of the year. Again crazy talk. Dell may actually be innovating something here. Dell showed off this Windows 7 Premium running and dual-core Atom N550 processor packing thing at the second day keynote of Intel’s IDF conference.

Posted in Acer,Dell,HP by Shane McGlaun on September 7th, 2010

A few companies track PC shipments around the globe including iSuppli. In July, iSuppli offered up the numbers for Q1 2010 and Acer overtook Dell for the second place in the global PC shipment list.

The numbers for Q2 are out and Dell has recaptured that second spot. Dell shipped 10.5 million PCs for 12.8% of the market. Acer shipped 10.1 million PCs for 12.4% of the market. Acer had negative 6.2% growth for the quarter while Dell had negative 1.2% growth thanks to its desktop and server shipments.

Dell to open source Streak code

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on August 26th, 2010

Dell has made a promise to open source its Streak code. Dell’s official blogger Lionel Menchaca says that Dell will meet “all applicable requirements” in due time. The version of Android 1.6 used by Dell is based on a Linux kernel and fits under the GNU Public License (GPL), which requires that it open-source any new code.

Without Dell’s custom portions of software, programmers haven’t had access to the drivers and other code that speaks to the Streak’s hardware. There is no deadline for when code must be published, but it’s usually assumed code will be available immediately or shortly before any hardware or software ships.

Dell Aero gets official: $100 on contract

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on August 24th, 2010

Dell has been talking up the world’s lightest Android phone since way back in March, and today it officially arrives for $100 with a 2-year AT&T contract. Complete with a dated operating system that is over a year behind. (Android 1.5) And to make matters worse there’s no word on when—or if—we can expect a Froyo update.

That wouldn’t be so sad, except that otherwise its a decent phone. Some features include a 5MP camera with 8x zoom, up to 32GB microSD memory, and a 624Mhz processor on a $100 phone.
