Dell revealed its first ever ultrabook for the enterprise along with a new tablet and touch-based all-in-one PCs.
The former direct-only vendor unveiled new additions to its portfolio of business-class computers with a focus on the consumerization of IT. These new products will also be bolstered by IT security and manageability for enterprise-class deployments. The three new devices include the Latitude 10-inch touch-enabled tablet, the Latitude 6430u ultrabook and a touch-enabled OptiPlex 9010 all-in-one desktop PC.
Sam Burd, global vice president of Dell’s Personal Computing Product Group, said never before has the intersection between great design and data security and manageability been as important as employees increasingly ask for support for gorgeous products while IT needs to maintain corporate controls. Dell is providing the answer with these new Latitude and OptiPlex products designed to inspire workers and meet the needs of IT.
Dell’s approach to this new product rollout is based on Windows 8, which is expected to be released late in Oct. by Microsoft.
Pricing on the Latitude 10, Latitude 6430u and OptiPlex 9010 AIO will be set near the time of the launch of Windows 8, Dell said.
