Computing giant Dell has been showcasing a slew of new products at CES, including notebooks and a new smartphone, in a bid to regain the market share lost to Acer and HP last year.
The firm introduced Intel Core i3 and i5 processor-based Inspiron notebooks with "immediate availability", sporting 14in, 15in and 17in screen sizes and a rainbow of colours. Aside from the new CPUs, graphics will mostly be powered by the Mobility Radeon HD4330 from ATI, said the vendor.
Michael Tatelam, Dell vice presdident of marketing and sales, decided to empty his pockets and reveal some interesting pieces, including a fully working slate device as well as the Dell Mini 3i mobile phone running Android.
The Dell Mini 3i smartphone will be sold in the US on the AT&T network, and Dell has said that it is keen to support operator services, meaning that there might not be an unlocked, contract-free version of the Dell Mini 3i handset at launch.
The firm also took the opportunity to beef up its Mini 10 netbook. The device will now sport a "high definition" display with high-definition acceleration. Continuing with the entertainment theme, the Dell Mini 10 will have a built-in digital TV tuner. Should you wish to output this to a screen bigger than 10in, Displayport connectivity is provided.
