Dell Inspiron 9 is highly mobile device
Dell has unveiled the Inspiron Mini 9 (pictured), a small, easy-to-carry device that is made to connect users to their online world.

The Inspiron Mini is available now in the U.S., Canada, Japan and select countries in Europe. Availability elsewhere will be handled on a country -by-country basis.

With a starting weight of 2.28 lbs, it comes with a sealed keyboard, solid state drive (SSD) memory storage and a 8.9 inch glossy LED display (1024x600 pixels). Standard built-in Wi-Fi provides quick and easy wireless internet access to hotspots in the home, on campus, in a local coffee shop, in the office or at a conference. The Dell Mini also comes with built-in Bluetooth for connection to other personal accessories such as mouse, printer, PDAs, and stereo headphones.

Dell has teamed up with Box.net to offer an exclusive web-based file storage, access and sharing to Inspiron Mini users, including a free Basic plan with 2GB of remote storage space, expandable to 25GB. Dell’s Inspiron Mini will include a direct link to a Dell-exclusive home page on Box.net (www.box.net/dell), providing users with an easy way to add incremental online storage space. Individuals can safely and securely upload files of any type to their Box, including photos, videos, music, documents and presentations, and then access those files from almost anywhere on any device.

Box.net’s world-class service requires no software to download. With its OpenBox platform, Box.net enables people to edit documents and photos directly from their web-browser and post media to their blog or social networks, further enhancing the mobility and user experience on the Inspiron Mini.

Inspiron Mini can be personalized with two choice of colors – Obsidian Black or Alpine White – and interaction experience – optional Windows XP or Ubuntu 8.04 with custom Dell interface, to be offered soon.

For those looking for a more traditional and familiar experience, the Inspiron Mini with Windows XP Home is available immediately starting at US$399.

Inspiron Mini devices featuring an intuitive Dell-developed custom interface are expected to be available in a few weeks with a starting price of US$349. The custom home screen is designed to make it easy to find what people are looking for. Intuitive icons link directly to groups of similar applications, like games, Web and entertainment, and favorite web links for quick access. Plus, the home screen can be personalized, putting your favorites front and center.
