CES

Dell unleashed a deluge of products and information upon us today. First up is some clarification on Dell’s Mini 3 smartphone. Though Dell announced its Android-powered Mini 3 handset and AT&T announced that it was getting a Dell handset yesterday, neither company confirmed the obvious — that the Dell Mini 3 is headed for AT&T. Thankfully, Dell came to its senses and confirmed today that the Mini 3 is indeed coming to AT&T. Dell also confirmed that it is working on a prototype 5 inch tablet, which looks curiously similar to the previously leaked Dell Streak. Rounding things out, Dell refreshed its PC and notebook lineup by redesigning its Inspiron series of PCs, introducing the sweet new Alienware M11x — a netbook-sized gaming machine, debuting an updated version of its Studio 14 notebook, and replacing the older Core 2 Duo with Intel’s latest Core i3, i5, and i7 processors. Hit the jump for the full press release and a few press photos of the prototype tablet and the new Alienware M11x.

LAS VEGAS–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dell is responding to people’s desire to have mobile products that help them stay connected and leverage the latest tools and services for immersive digital experiences on the go.

Today at CES 2010, Dell showcased a broad range of new products including its first ultra-mobile gaming laptop. Additionally the company provided a peek at new products, including a 5-inch tablet concept and an Android-based smart phone for AT&T, both slated for launch in 2010. Dell also refreshed its Inspiron, Studio and Alienware systems incorporating the new Intel Core i3, i5, and i7 processors.

From a suite at the Palms Casino Resort, Dell gave bloggers, journalists and partners an early look at the upcoming devices, further illustrating how the company is using its unique relationships with people around the world to innovate consumer electronics to be more mobile, convenient and powerful.

“We are focused on technology and solutions that help people connect and share content virtually anytime and anyplace,” said Michael Tatelman, vice president of sales and marketing for Dell’s global consumer business. “Consumers are demanding enhanced mobility in high-quality devices, and want to know they have made smart choices with their purchases.”

Dell is expanding the personal-computing space with new products to respond to and best meet the expressed needs of consumers. The new products include:

  • The Alienware M11x, the most powerful 11-inch gaming laptop in the universe — as easy to carry as it is powerful, making high-performance gaming accessible to all.
  • A refreshed Studio 14 laptop for individuals who create and consume digital content, combining powerful technology with features that deliver a rich multi-media experience like enhanced audio solutions and high performance high definition displays.
  • New versions of the popular Inspiron PC line continue to deliver on value and personalization while incorporating Intel’s new Core i5 processors and its “smart” features such as Turbo Boost technology.
  • Dell expanded on Wednesday’s announcement saying that U.S. based AT&T will become the next mobile operator to offer the Mini 3 Android-based smart phone.

Dell shared interesting results from a study of more than 1,500 people about their smart phone experiences. Among highlights: 82 percent of those who own smart phones said they would not leave home without them, while more than half of those surveyed said they wanted to choose from a wider variety of smart phones options from additional providers.
