Finally! In a move which many have predicted will change the fortunes of the ever-lambasted Tablet PC platform, it appears that Dell are at long last bringing out a pen-computing laptop of their own. Eagle-eyed Bob from MobileRead spotted the Latitude-based convertible in a video on the company's own Direct2Dell blog, and Kevin Tofel is already slinging in his twopenny-worth about potential specs.

Dell’s Tablet Intentions – they’ll pick up the pen come Vista

Dell’s Tablet Intentions – they’ll pick up the pen come Vista

A lot of people have been waiting for Dell to enter the Tablet PC market, on the assumption that it will help bring prices down and encourage the pen-technology into offices, classrooms and university lecture halls.  Up until now, however, they've completely denied any intention of sticking a hinge and digitiser into any of their notebooks.

A GottaBeMobile reader, Kevin Bals, was talking to a Dell rep at a school conference who spilt the beans on the multi-national's plans come Vista-time...

"I was at a large school convention on Thursday and ran into the Dell Reps for my area. I was telling them about how we use the Toshiba Tablets and wireless Epson Projectors in our classrooms. I asked them if Dell was coming out with a Tablet anytime soon and they said to look for a late spring release of a Dell Tablet. They said Michael Dell was very much against the tablet. Over time though he realized the tablet was a gateway into the school for other vendors. For example since the school had to go elsewhere for the tablets they ended up buying printers, desktops or projectors from the other vendor as well.

They also said that Dell usually waits for a particular product to become mainstream and then they look to develop a product and own the market. Dell feels that since Vista will have the tablet features built right into the OS that the corporate world will embrace the tablet on a large scale. The reps said this will be especially true once service pack 1 is out for Vista. They plan on releasing their tablet to coincide with the release of service pack 1 for Vista."

This would be incredible news and a real boost to a technology that, even years down the line from its inception, still gets regular criticism from reviewers.

Nadella: Windows 10 embraces all, yes, even phones

Nadella: Windows 10 embraces all, yes, even phones

Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella's announcement last week didn't exactly shake up the mobile industry as much as it shook confidence in its mobile, particularly smartphone, strategy or lack thereof. A lot of questions were raised and theories cooked up. Since then, Microsoft has reiterated in different corners that it is still committed to smartphones. How exactly, it hasn't completely explained. ZDNet's Mary Jo Foley was able to get some alone time with Nadella after he delivered his Worldwide Partners Conference keynote and asked the hard questions that many of us probably want to ask.

Did Nadella just put the nail in Windows Phone’s coffin?

Did Nadella just put the nail in Windows Phone’s coffin?

Just a while ago we looked into the reasons why it wouldn't be in Microsoft's best interests to suddenly switch to Android as its mobile platform. And then head honcho Satya Nadella dropped the huge bombshell. Microsoft has, for all intents and purposes, stricken off Nokia from its books. This has lead many to conclude Microsoft's surrender in the smartphone market. And they might very well be right. Or not. Like many things in life, things aren't as clear cut as we would like, and Microsoft's struggle with mobile is far from over.

Nadella: Microsoft “committed” to making phones

Nadella: Microsoft “committed” to making phones

Satya Nadella insists Microsoft is still "committed" to making its own smartphones, the CEO arguing today's massive $7.6bn write-off is refocusing not abandonment. The company announced this morning it would cut 7,800 jobs, predominantly from its phone business, as well as write-off what it spent on acquiring Nokia. "I don’t take changes in plans like these lightly," Nadella wrote in an email to all employees, "given that they affect the lives of people who have made an impact at Microsoft."
