Larry Dignan shares Dell’s third quarter fiscal financial results.

“Dell’s fiscal third quarter results highlighted the two sides of the company as corporate demand remained strong, but the consumer business was weak. As a result, the quarter was a mixed bag. Meanwhile, Dell’s outlook for the fourth quarter is weaker than expected. The company reported third quarter earnings of $822 million, or 42 cents a share, on revenue of $15.4 billion, up 19 per cent from a year ago. Non-GAAP earnings were 45 cents a share. Wall Street was expecting earnings of 32 cents a share on revenue of $15.75 billion.”

These include broad pricing promotions granted by vendors to help partners target specific vertical markets like healthcare, government and education, as well as custom pricing unique to an individual end user–available through their resellers–such as a hospital, university or large enterprise, Tech Data claims.”

Viewsonic ViewPad 7 Android tablet

Chris Bidmead shares his thoughts on ViewSonic’s new ViewPad 7 Android-based tablet.

“I was tablet-sceptic before I met this machine, but the ViewPad 7 definitely works for me. The screen is big enough for serious couch surfing at home, and the jacket-pocket friendly form-factor makes it a useful travelling companion. You won’t be writing War and Peace using any of the various virtual keyboards, but there’s scope for serious note-taking once you get the hang of it.”
