The tiny tablet that Dell showed off but wouldn’t commit to at CES has fallen into the hands of a hacker. Not a software hacker, but one of the hardware variety who takes the little guy apart piece by piece. Seems a tad ironic given that it was a look-no-touch showing in Vegas, but this […]
I just received word from @LionelatDell and @BillatDell that Windows 7 drivers for the Latitude XT are being posted today, this includes functional N-Trig digitizer drivers. Direct link to Windows 7 N-trig drivers: 32 bit: http://bit.ly/5uRRce, 64 bit: http://bit.ly/4SNW46 As of this writing, they are not there yet. I understand they are working on adding […]
Moving faster than I can blog. Dell’s official CES press release after the jump. Lot of notebooks, just a brief mention of the little tablet and Mini 3 smartphone. Hot item is the Alienware M11x, an 11″ gaming laptop that can switch from high performance to low-powered graphics with the press of a button. Promises […]
IAdmittedly it would be tough to make a less exciting state tablet announcement than last night’s, but Dell offered a good show for their slate tablet.Â It’s a 5″ unit running Dell Android.Â And that’s about all we know.Â There was a short concept Video showing some amazing sharing and collaboration features, such as a […]

N-trig just sent over a link to a video demo of the Dell Studio 17’s Multi-touch display. We still don’t see this display option live at Dell.com, but we expect to see it soon. In the video demo there’s a father and son going through a few entertainment applications on the The Dell Studio 17 […]
Deep from within the undisclosed location where Rob and his Dell Latitude XT are being held hostage (we’re now in Day 13) a message has surfaced from Dell. Essentially Windows 7 drivers for the Latitude XT are in development. Here’s what Dell has to say: We need to clarify some of the confusion around Windows […]
This little “Held hostage” feature is generating a lot of comments here on GBM with some saying we’re overdoing it, and some very angry with Dell for the lack of movement. Here’s the deal. This doesn’t just involve the Windows 7 drivers for the Dell Latitude XT it involves other Dell hardware as well. All […]
Yes, we’re 8 days into the Dell Latitude XT Drivers Held Hostage and while we have some communication going on with Dell, we still know things are on some burner that can best be described as no where near the front of the oven. Rob has posted this on the Dell’s IdeaStorm site, and from […]
Dell published a quick video of the Latitude XFR XTR tablet being put through some durability tests. One thing to note about MIL-SPEC drop tests is that they call for drops onto plywood on top of concrete. I’ve dropped plenty of gadgets onto asphalt, tile and concrete, but never plywood on top of concrete.
Well, the saga continues and at least today we have some new information. Although I’m not sure this is going to make any Dell Latitude XT Tablet PC users happy. From his undisclosed prison cell Rob Bushway forwarded me this series of tweets from RichardatDell. From the looks of things, Latitude XT owners are now […]
Yes, another day goes by, and Rob and other Dell Latitude XT Tablet PC users are still without Windows 7 drivers. We’re not just talking touch drivers here, we’re talking any Windows 7 drivers. We’re also hearing that we may have to start a watch for the HP TX Convertible Tablet PCs as well.
