Dell empowers next generation workforce to “meet their match” with latest range of devices

Singapore, Oct. 8, 2013 – Dell renewed its commitment to today’s ever-changing workforce with the unveiling of its latest range of end user computing products. Cloud computing, the consumerization of IT, BYOD, Big Data – these pervasive trends have fundamentally changed the way people work. People now work from anywhere, anytime and their technology choices reflect these changing needs. Dell’s new range of products comprises both built-for business ultrabooks and personal, everyday notebooks as well as printers and touch monitors that boast improved connectivity and functionality. These all-encompassing devices are dedicated to helping individuals meet their match, complementing different working habits and lifestyles.

 

“Asia Pacific is a key market for Dell, and we are fully committed to helping companies in the region drive transformation with our end-to-end solutions and services. We have delivered some amazing innovations to meet the needs of the evolving workforce. We are thus confident of our end user computing business and will continue to aggressively expand it in this part of the world,” said Peter Marrs, Executive Director & General Manager, End User Computing, Dell APJ.

 

Close to 840 million employees in the Asia Pacific region will be classified as mobile workers by the year 2015, according to research firm IDC’s Worldwide Mob ile Worker Population Forecast 2011-2015 report. Therefore, while the way people work is constantly changing, the need for security, manageability and reliability stays a constant. As a result, Dell has expanded its focus to provide end-to-end solutions and devices targeted at today’s evolving workforce.

 

For starters, Dell is unveiling its Venue line of tablets, with three new ultrathin models designed to address the changing way people live and work today. With compact designs that make it easy to stay connected on the go, the Dell Venue 7 and 8 Android-based tablets and the Venue 11 Pro, have an exquisite fit and finish.

 

Intel®, the company that revolutionized computing technology is now bringing amazing new experiences to tablets. New Intel Atom™ processors are designed and optimized for lightning fast apps, responsive Web browsing, stunning 3D graphics, advanced camera capabilities, and vivid HD video, with energy efficiency for outstanding battery life. Tablets with Intel Inside® deliver new experiences at the speed of life.

 

“Dell has been a trailblazer in delivering new user experiences for consumers and business customers across Asia Pacific and is today launching some great targeted offerings for the Asia market: new eleven inch notebooks and affordable Android-based tablets,” said Uday Marty, managing director for Intel South East Asia. “These great products and new 4th generation Intel Core™ processor based notebooks with tablet-like battery life and uncompromised performance keep pace with the mobile lifestyles of our APAC consumers and businesses.”

 

Connecting and protecting businesses with new secure, manageable and reliable laptops

The latest addition to Dell’s award-winning Latitude family of business computing solutions is the secure, manageable and reliable Dell Latitude 7000 Series Ultrabooks™. The Dell Latitude 7000 Series Ultrabooks enables companies across the Asia-Pacific region and the world do business better. Powered by Intel ultra-low voltage processors, these thin, light Ultrabooks redefine the corporate laptop.

 

Complementing the Dell Latitude 7000 Series Ultrabooks are the new Latitude 5000 and 3000 Series laptops, designed to help businesses of all sizes adopt secure, manageable and reliable notebooks. Offering the same level of attention to security, manageability, reliability and quality material design, these laptops expand the computing options for education, healthcare and manufacturing customers worldwide.

 

Providing the mobile individual with the perfect blend of power and style through “user-first” devices

The new Inspiron 7000 Series laptops provide powerful performance in thin, upscale designs. Ideal for on-the-go types, the Inspiron 7000 Series is a perfect blend of portability and performance, with long-lasting battery life and a sturdy forged aluminum design. Enhanced with Intel’s 4th generation (Haswell) Core i5 and i7 options, the Inspiron 7000 Series is maximized for efficiency.

 

Dell continues to add to its Inspiron portfolio with the Inspiron 11 3000 Series, and the Inspiron 23 All-in-ones. Together, these devices continue the Inspiron tradition of delivering accessible, dependable technology that’s easy to use, stylish and cost-friendly.

 

The Dell Precision M3800, the first thin and light mobile workstation that enables creative and design professionals to be truly mobile yet not sacrifice performance. It is the thinnest mobile workstation at less than ¾ of an inch or 18mm and is a true workstation-class system offering NVIDIA Quadro K1100M graphics and Intel 4th generation Core i7 Quad Core CPU, an incredibly vivid Quad HD+ display and ISV certifications for the top media & entertainment, engineering and design applications.

 

In addition to the new Inspiron line and Precision M3800, Dell is introducing new XPS laptops, each with breakthrough displays for a phenomenal viewing experience with vibrant, cri sp images in any screen size. The new XPS 11 2-in-1 Ultrabook, for instance, is the thinnest, most compact 2-in-1 in the world and features the first Quad HD (2560 x 1440) display on an 11.6-inch  2-in-1. This new XPS line-up is joined by the XPS 15 multimedia powerhouse and the award-winning XPS 13 Ultrabook which boasts faster processors, touch Full HD display and improved battery life.

 

A more natural, more intuitive computing experience with touch screen technology

Dell continues to embrace the basic human instinct of touch with a series of products that are empowered with touch screen capabilities, enabling more users to experience touch. These devices, ranging from the latest laptops to touch monitors, bring together the fun and interactivity of a tablet and the power and functionality of a PC.

 

In particular, Dell’s new touch monitors are revolutionizing the touch experience. The new Dell 20 Touch Monitor (E2014T), Dell 23 Touch Monitor (P2314T) and Dell 27 Touch Monitor (P2714T) offer a wide range of features and at great price points, allowing users to tap, slide, swipe, turn, pinch and stretch content onscreen with their fingers.

 

Not just a PC maker, Dell has evolved its end user computing portfolio

Dell’s comprehensive end user computing portfolio extends beyond PCs to include multi-functional printers that empower businesses to do more than print and drive efficiencies by collaborating with digital data. One new model that will be unveiled later this month is the C2665, a color printer that combines over 30 uses into one nifty device. This printer takes the user experience to the next level with a “swipe” ready 4.3-inch color touchscreen with customizable operating panel and Near Field Communication, tap-and-print enabled capabilities. The smart device also empowers collaboration and connectivity with users able to connect and share data securely to popular cloud services of their choice.
