At a business-centric media event today, Dell announced that it will have a 10-inch, Windows 7 tablet available “later this year.” The company did not provide any additional details about the device, other than the fact that it will be targeting businesses.
“The upcoming tablet is designed for end-users who need greater mobility, as well as IT organizations that demand control, security, manageability and integration with existing infrastructure investments,” quips Dell. “Dell’s tablet will empower a more mobile workforce in a way that offers customers the business applications and corporate data they need, while meeting regulatory mandates and IT requirements.”
It’s still unclear whether a market for a tablet device running a full-fledge OS, like Windows, exists. Hopefully, the good folks at Dell will throw us an additional crumb or two about this mysterious tablet in the coming weeks.
