Dell tablet focus is Windows 8 not Android

Dell is betting on Windows 8 as the company's best chance of tablet success against the iPad, with CEO Michael Dell arguing that the Android slate market "has not developed" as predicted. Speaking at Dell World 2011 this week, V3 reports, Dell described the PC manufacturer as "very aligned with Microsoft around Windows 8" and teased that "you'll hear more about Windows 8 from us and see a wide range of products released."

Samsung Gloria & Dell tablets to star in Ballmer’s CES 2011 Microsoft keynote?

Microsoft is tipped to present a number of new tablet PCs during CEO Steve Ballmer's CES 2011 keynote, with brands including Samsung and Dell expected to provide hardware running the Windows OS. According to the New York Times sources, one of the devices is a Samsung slate that's "similar in size and shape to the Apple iPad, although it is not as thin. It also includes a unique and slick keyboard that slides out from below for easy typing"; that fits in with rumors of the Samsung Gloria, a 10-inch Windows tablet rumored last week.

More gist for the Dell Tablet PC rumour-mill; D420-based convertible coming in October?

More gist for the Dell Tablet PC rumour-mill; D420-based convertible coming in October?

Last October I wrote about the (perpetual) rumour that hardware behemoth Dell were planning a Tablet PC come Vista SP1; back then it was based on a blabbermouth Dell rep at a school conference, now a mysterious jkontherun reader has approached James with some information of their own.

Apparently in the September/October 2007 timeframe (later than the previous rumour, which indicated the end of Spring) we can expect to see a convertible Tablet based on the Latitude D420 notebook design and thus compatible with all existing D420 accessories.  It seems to be positioned as the final swan-song for the range, since the rumour goes that it will be the last model in the D series.

Dell XPS 11 2-in-1 Ultrabook aims for ultra-thinness to make tablet mode viable

Dell XPS 11 2-in-1 Ultrabook aims for ultra-thinness to make tablet mode viable

The multi-form notebook with touchscreen abilities is a form factor that appears to be alive and well here in 2013, and Dell wants the world to know that they're all about continuing to innovate with the 2-in-1 2013 edition of the Dell XPS 11 this morning. What we're seeing here is what Dell calls the world's thinnest, lightest, and most compact 2-in-1 Ultrabook headed to the market today. They've made the case with a 2.5 pound body and between 11 and 15mm thickness on this XPS 11 machine, made with a rotating hinge so it can be a tablet just as easy as it can a notebook.

Dell drops Windows RT as XPS 10 tablet quietly discontinued

Dell drops Windows RT as XPS 10 tablet quietly discontinued

Dell has quietly axed its XPS 10 tablet, the Windows RT-based 10-inch slate that offered a keyboard dock and ARM processor architecture for longer battery life, though it's not certain whether it's a final shift for the company away from the ailing Windows 8 variant. Announced in August last year - in fact we first went hands-on all the way back at IFA 2012 - the XPS 10 promised up to 20 hours of runtime on a single charge thanks to its frugal Qualcomm chipset, but sales proved disappointing and Dell was left unimpressed by the spot Windows RT was carving in the market.

Dell Venue tablet 2013: Bay Trail keeps OEM in consumer tech

Though the company made clear that they're out on smartphones for the time being (back in 2012), Dell has been revealed to be a headliner here in 2013 for a Windows tablet running Intel's new Bay Trail processor. Not one whole heck of a lot is known about this device at the moment, as Dell has only just shown the machine off at Intel's event for Bay Trail with scant detail, but we do know this: this is a move for Dell that's required a large amount of consideration. It's not as if the company has been doing well in the tablet market as of late.
