Dell’s next step

I’ve done very little blogging lately as I’ve been preoccupied with a large pile of marking and a couple of other things that I’m writing.  But I was struck by this story, partly because Dell does already make the sort of tablet computer that the term referred to during the ‘noughties’, a conventional laptop with a swivelling screen.  Perhaps most intriguing is the revelation that Dell’s Streak is to be sold through the carphone warehouse.  For one thing, along with the Android operating system, this defines it very clearly as a big phone and not a small PC, or for that matter a PC accessory.  But for another, it deviates from Dell’s long-standing policy of selling directly if possible, either over the phone or the Internet, and I’m intrigued by what might be behind that
