Dell was hoping to slip quietly out the door of the netbook business, much the way former Boston Red Sox General Manager Theo Epstein tried to duck out of Fenway Park in 2005 donning a gorilla suit. Epstein would stick around six more years and provide Red Sox Nation with another World Series. Dell, on the other hand, appears genuinely finished with netbooks. If you head over to Dell's Mini 10 Netbook product page, you'll see a big yellow exclamation point alerting you "this product is unavailable." That prompted whispers that Dell was done with netbooks, and when those whispers turned into a loud... Read more...
Another day, another netbook. This time, it's a new one from Dell, and it's another in the Inspiron Mini 10 lineup. Dell's Mini 10 range has been around for nearly as long as 10" netbooks have been around, and the new Mini 1018 borrows styling cues from the curvy Inspiron R notebook line and includes mostly just the basics at a lower price point. You won't find a Broadcom media accelerator or an SSD here, but you also won't find a $500+ price tag. The Mini 1018 is a lower-end netbook meant for those who just need to handle the basics, offering a single-core Atom N455 processor, DDR3 memory, a 250GB... Read more...
This year's CTIA show in Las Vegas is all about what's next: 4G. What's interesting is that most carriers don't even have 3G figured out; AT&T's 3G network still isn't robust enough to handle bursts of traffic in major cities, and yet the mobile world seems set on moving on to WiMAX, LTE, neither, or both. Clearwire is the major provider of WiMAX in the U.S. today, and there's no surprise to see the company making a number of major announcements at America's largest wireless show. Throughout 2010, Clearwire plans on expanding their footprint in a big way. New markets that will see 4G service... Read more...
If you're looking for a new netbook, and you don't mind paying for a mobile broadband plan to go with it (so long as it's cheaper up-front), both AT&T and Verizon have plenty of options for you to pick through. Up until now, however, Sprint has been notably absent from that group, but thanks to a new partnership with Dell, even Sprint shelves will soon house computers.The tried-and-true Dell Inspiron Mini 10 is coming to Sprint's network, where it will sell with an integrated CDMA/EVDO module that'll get you online pretty much anywhere in America. Unfortunately, Sprint missed its opportunity... Read more...
Anyone paying even the slightest attention to the evolution of Dell designs would know that the company has come a long way since the beige box days in the late 90s, but even for the newer, fresher, hipper Dell, this one's pretty radical. Just as the company decided to dump its Inspiron Mini 12 in favor of keeping just the Mini 10 around, it has decided to tag-team with what's likely the most popular network for kids on television today: Nickelodeon. In a cute, almost slimy joint announcement today, the two are trying to prove that "fun and education can mix" with the Dell Inspiron Mini Nickelodeon... Read more...
