Force 10 Networks is a leading Private Company which provides Ethernet based network solutions. Force 10 made many Award-Winning Ethernet switching and routing products. Force 10 was acquired by Dell recently, but the financial details of the acquisition are unknown.

Dell Works On i5 Windows Tablet W/ Full HD

We’ve just got word that Dell may be working on a new tablet, this time of Windows-flavor. The company had previously released the Dell Streak, and more recently, the Dell Streak Pro, which both ran on Google’s Android operating system.

The idea of a Windows tablet may seem exciting to some, but many have already abandoned the idea of owning a Dell tablet, after many reports of a weak battery life and general underperformance from the company.

Never Be “On Hold” Again, W/ Fast Customer App

A new app called Fast Customer is temporarily free, down from its usual price of 99 cents, and lets consumers connect directly to a live person from a selection of hundreds of businesses.

Here’s how it works. Rather than going through the trouble of navigating through complicated menu systems and getting directions from a “machine”, or suffer through holiday music while you wait, the company actually calls you.

Microsoft’s Influence On Major Mobile Companies

Nokia is expected to launch 12 new Windows phones next year and according to Forbes, a couple of them will offer dual-core processors. A couple of the dual-core phones will be powered by ST-Ericsson’s U8500 system-on-a-chip (not to be confused with ‘hotdog-on-a-stick’) package, with full support for the ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processors.

Nokia is also said to have already begun developing a Windows Phone, despite the expected launch date in 2012. Microsoft has also asked HTC, LG, Samsung, and Dell to utilize the same chipsets, display sizes, and camera MP number to give consumers a consistent experience with Windows Phone 7 across devices.

Intel + Apple, A Match Made In Heaven

Intel’s Senior Vice President, Tom Kilroy has recently revealed that Intel and Apple are working closely together on Apple’s future products. Kilroy is state that Apple helps shape Intel’s roadmap. This makes sense to me because unlike PC manufacturers that have an option of choosing Intel, AMD, or ARM, Apple has been using Intel processors for years and years.

The duo have quite a solid history together and it would make sense for them to team up to take on the world, especially when Intel knows that Apple won’t flock over to AMD or ARM for business.

Dell Bounces Back In Profits

I was watching Dell’s stock closely last year and they weren’t doing too good. The company hung around $12 a share for the majority of Q4 last year. The company is really picking up now. Dell has just issued a statement that it has made a net income of $945M pr 49 cents a share which is quite a leap from $341M or 17 cents a share earlier in the year. The CEO and chairman of Dell, Michael Dell, claimed that the company was off to a solid start for the fiscal year of 2012 and that the substantial profit increase demonstrates that Dell’s strategy is working and the execution is improving.

You Can Only Blame The iPad So Much

An interesting study was conducted recently by a market research firm called NPD Group. The study revealed that the iPad isn’t responsible for the current decline in the PC market. In fact, the declines were due to factors other than the rising popularity of the iPad and other media tablets. Only 14% of early iPad adopters decided against purchasing a traditional PC as a result of their tablet purchases.

Dell Streak Pro On Its Way!

Google announced Android 3.1 at Google I/O yesterday. The new Android will offer fixes such as native USB hosting, speed improvements, and is expected to come out on tablets in the near future. Luckily, Dell is already testing the next version of Android on the Dell Streak Pro, the next flavor of the Dell Streak that is due in mid June. All we know at the moment is that the new Dell Streak will be 10-inch tablet, with Android and a display resolution of 1280 x 800 pixels.

Dell Venue Pro Available With AT&T Too!

The Dell Venue Pro was previously only available through one wireless carrier, T-Mobile. It looks like things have changed a bit and Dell has partnered up with AT&T to bring the shiny device to AT&T customers throughout the nation. $99 is all it takes to own this piece of equipment, that is, when you sign up for a two-year contract with the telecommunications giant.

The base model has 8GB of storage, but users can opt to pay $149 for the 16GB or $199 for the 32GB model.

The new Dell Precision M6600 is one notebook you don’t want to miss. The high-end computer will ship out on May 10th and is currently available for purchase in the United Kingdom. The notebook has a beautiful 17.3-inch screen, quad-core 2.5GHz i7, as much as 16GB of RAM, 512GB of solid-state storage and a 2GB Nvidia Quadro 4000M graphics processor. The laptop will feature a 1080 display multi-touch screen for those willing to pay a little extra for premium. How much will all this cost you? How does $8,000 sound? Well, it is a notebook after all you know.
