The Gizmodo site writes that one of their number bumped into Michael Dell who was carrying a brand new ultra-portable.
“He was nice enough to show me this laptop that he was carrying that he said no one's seen before. It's a small form factor notebook, just like the Asus Eee and the HP 2133. He wouldn't tell me what OS it's running, or the pricing, but that it's a low-cost notebook meant for developing countries, and I hope here. Maybe it's Atom-powered. Who knows? But I do see three USB ports, a card reader, VGA out, Ethernet, and that red candy shell.”
It is a long expected mover from Dell and perhaps no surprise that even if low cost portables are not eating into the company profits too much at the moment, may well do in the future.
