Dell stunned by iPad

Written by Nick Farell

Someone must have thrown one at him
Tin box maker Michael Dell has admitted that he was surprised by the rise of the iPad.

Speaking to the Wall Street Journal he said he could not see what Jobs' logic on flogging a keyboardless netbook would be. After all Tablets were not new, and Microsoft and others had been peddling them for years without any success.

If the great unwashed want Tablets, Dell said, then he will will give them tablet. They will be based around Android as Dell thinks that will eventually catch up to Apple.

He does not believe that tablets will kill off the PC and he has no plans to flog off that arm of his business. He thinks that the cloud has legs and so he is building data centres for that, just like everyone else.

I'd be more stunned if anyone other than Apple could sell anything like the quantities they do with such a product - after all, they have a large fool-base, sorry, meant fan-base (honest) ;)

Yeah! If they ever release something garbage people probably will buy it! I can't wait for the day that they release something bad!

What has Apple ever done for us? They've only given us something to hate, made tablets main-stream, been the first to have super high-res panels in phones and have lead the way in terms of style (particularly in the hand-held sector) for several years. Apart from all that, WHAT HAVE THEY EVER DONE FOR US?

You got your tense wrong there. They've been selling garbage for years and people have been buying it because it's from Apple.

You've got your comparatives wrong... all of them sell garbage, Dell and HP included, the main difference is that Apple has been selling overpriced garbage for years.

"Dell" is scared. Apple WILL pass HP and IBM and he can't figure out why, so he's going to jump on the bandwagon. Dell is an overpriced ripoff.

iGarbage - the next BIG thing from Apple.
Though I guess it will start with iP(something). iProbe maybe... "iProbe - Now This changes Everything!"
