A few weeks ago, Dell CEO Michael Dell indicated that the company would be entering the low-cost ultraportable market sometime soonish. But there weren’t many details available regarding the actual device Dell would be putting out. That hasn’t really changed today. There still aren’t many details. But there may be a few.
Dell has announced plans to sell a low-cost notebook called the Dell 500 in India. No word on the screen size, weight, or processing power. But the Dell 500 is designed for educational markets, and will cost Rs 24,500 or about $600 US.
The computer will be available in Windows XP or Ubuntu Linux flavors, and will sport an 8-in-1 card reader and wireless connectivity. And that’s pretty much all we know about it. Whether this is the same model that Dell will eventually release in the US remains to be seen.
