T-Mobile Announces Dell Inspiron Mini 10 With webConnect

T-Mobile Announces Dell Inspiron Mini 10 With webConnect

Looks like T-Mobile USA is ready to jump into the netbook game. Wireless carriers have been promoting laptops and netbooks for awhile now, all of which have their 3G connectivity bundled within, but T-Mobile has been slow to join the fray. That's all changed with the official announcement today out of CTIA 2010, that the Dell Inspiron Mini 10 has been paired with the magenta's 3G network.

Dell Mini 10 Performance Plus Package adds Broadcom Crystal HD & bigger battery

Dell Mini 10 Performance Plus Package adds Broadcom Crystal HD & bigger battery

Dell have finally added the Broadcom Crystal HD card option to their Inspiron Mini 10 netbook, as part of the new Performance Plus Package.  The upgrade not only adds the HD video decoder chip - which allows the Mini 10 to play 1080p video, something the Atom N450/GMA 3150 pairing can't, on their own, manage - but a higher resolution 1,366 x 768 10.1-inch display.

Harlequin dual-touchscreen netbook mod is DIY Courier

Harlequin dual-touchscreen netbook mod is DIY Courier

Now turning a netbook into a cheap tablet or UMPC isn't new, and we've seen plenty such mods before, but this so-called Harlequin project is something else.  My Dell Mini forum member pakkei decided he couldn't wait for Microsoft to release the Courier and thought he'd make one himself, converting his Inspiron Mini 9 into a slate-format tablet and adding in a second, 9-inch USB touchscreen.

Enough Already with the Subsidized Netbooks!

Enough Already with the Subsidized Netbooks!

With the holidays fast approaching cell phone carriers are stocking up on inventory and amongst the new Motorola DROIDs, HTC Heroes, and Palm Pixies are a slightly larger, yet unfamiliar crop of devices – netbooks. AT&T is all giddy about its exclusive availability of the Nokia Booklet 3G and Sprint announced just yesterday that it will be selling the Dell Inspiron Mini 10V. Verizon already has three netbooks in its arsenal, including HP’s new powerful Mini 311. Clearly, lining up the selection isn’t a problem, but what the carriers haven’t figured out yet is that selling netbooks requires a totally different approach than selling phones. The deals and the subsidized model, in my mind, make as much sense for netbooks as building and then plowing a virtual Farmville farm!

Dell have announced their first netbook running Intel's Moblin platform, and it's available for developers to buy now.  The Dell Inspiron Mini 10v Ubuntu Moblin Remix Edition is priced at $299 and comes with the usual Mini 10v specification - Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB hard-drive - but uses Canonical's combination of the core Moblin Version 2.0 interface, libraries, and applications with the internals of Ubuntu Linux 9.04.

Dell Inspiron 11z 11.6-inch CULV ultraportable hits $399 price point

Dell Inspiron 11z 11.6-inch CULV ultraportable hits $399 price point

Dell may have canned their Inspiron Mini 12, but they've replaced it with a new CULV ultraportable in the shape of the Inspiron 11z.  The new notebook has an 11.6-inch display running at 1,366 x 768, paired with Intel's Celeron 723 1.2GHz processor, 2GB of RAM and a 250GB hard-drive.  Thanks to stepping up to CULV rather than Intel's Atom range, the 11z gets past the CPU/storage limitations the chip company insists upon; that should mean buyers get a more capable ultraportable for their money.
