Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"For the longest time, Dell was considered a loyal Wintel shop,
selling only Windows machines on Intel hardware.
"Times change. Now the company offers systems with AMD
processors and sells systems with Linux pre-installed, and the
company is also rapidly expanding its offerings in the ARM/Android
space as well. It already has several smartphones in development,
and this week unveiled a mini-tablet, called the Streak.
"Dell (NASDAQ: DELL) introduced the Streak in England, where it
will launch first before coming to the U.S. It will likely be sold
through a carrier partner, as Dell is launching with O2, a UK
mobile carrier. The company also released a YouTube video with a
discussion with one of the Streak's group managers."
