Here we go with the breaking news, where in Dell is apparently killing off yet one more budget mobile computing device.
Well, as you are aware that Dell is much interested in selling Netbooks, especially the 10-inch class laptops category, which grabbed a good success for couple years. Now unfortunately faces a serious existential crisis.
On the other hand, the reports claim that currently Dell is concentrating on laptops, which deliver real performance. As a result, now the Dell Mini line of netbooks is gone.
In a statement, Dell Global Consumer PR, Director, Matthew Hutchison says that we sold through the Dell Mini in the past. We are committed to the highly portable space and have targeted on delivering thin + powerful solutions, for which we have perceived strong success, mainly in our XPS line.
Further, Matthew Hutchison says that Dell’s mobile consumer focus is on products like its freshly introduced XPS 14z, and XPS 15z. (XPS 14z has grabbed excellent ratings).
In 2008, Netbooks have made its first appearance and in 2010 August, Intel (the chip manufacturer) stated that approximately 70 million Atom processors had shipped for the small laptops. However, Apple’s iPad, and other tablets that entered into the market later, have started making serious inroads into the category in the 2010 second half. Well, from that point of time, the Netbook has never really been the same.
The best instance for this is to visit a Major U.S. electronics retailer shop, where in you will see display tables filled with tablets but only a handful of Netbooks.
