Dell remains committed to the mobility market and continues to sell products here and in other parts of the world. Streak 7 delivered [emphasis mine – editor]a unique experience for customers who wanted a larger screen-size yet the freedom of staying connected to their personal and professional content while on the-go. It continues to be available in many markets through retail, distributors and carrier partners such as Optus in Australia. A 10-inch version of the tablet, Streak 10 Pro, is currently offered in China, offering the ultimate digital divide between work and life. The Venue and Venue Pro devices, as well, continue to earn accolades for performance, design and functionality around the world. We also recently launched the Latitude ST, a 10-inch Windows 7-based touch-screen tablet designed for vertical markets such as education, finance and healthcare in November of this year. We remain committed to expanding our reach beyond PCs with a targeted set of open, standards-based mobility solutions and services designed for commercial and mobile professional customers.

My take – Dell is going to re-calibrate and focus squarely on getting ready for Windows 8.

This is yet another casualty of the Ipad’s dominance and and indication of just how much is riding on the success of Windows 8 for tablets.
