A day after Apple announcing their latest iPad creatively called the new iPad, Dell’s CEO, Michael Dell spoke to Bloomberg about their plans to compete in the tablet space.
Recently, Michael Dell told Forbes that he doesn’t see Dell as a PC company but an end-to-end IT—a significant focus shift for Dell. In his conversation with Aaron Ricadela and Emily Chang, Michael Dell said that they will be competing with the iPad in the enterprise market. Michael Dell’s key statements about the company’s plan for Windows 8 tablets are:
- Target the enterprise customer with Windows 8 tablets
- Tablets market a priority for Dell
- There is demand for a tablet that supports Windows applications
- Dell tablets to be available same day as Windows 8 launch (this can be significant)
