Dell Tablets To Be Available Same Day As Windows 8
By on March 8th, 2012

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)
If Dell is planning to launch tablets on launch day, I am assuming other OEM partners will too. I am looking at Samsung in particular. Dell’s focus on enterprise client might give them a market segment to concentrate and target. It will be interesting to see how things play out.

    Windows Tablets could compete very strongly on the consumer level as well if only companies would try marketing to consumers. It’s unfortunate that Windows tablets are ONLY marketed to business. The iPad started out in the consumer market and has made its way into enterprise BECAUSE consumers have seen it’s abilities and therefore recognized its usefulness in the workplace. How much more so the case would be if slates using Windows. To start, they include everything people wish the iPad had, i.e. a USB port. It’s amazing that manufacturers are not realizing this and adjusting accordingly.
