Ah, the chaos that is CES. And I mean that in a good way... it's like the Super Bowl of gadgets and new technology. For those that haven't been reading Direct2Dell recently (or haven't seen Engaget's live blog from Dell's CES 2010 press event), we've already shared some details on a couple of our new products—the redesigned Mini 10 (available for order now on Dell.com) and the Dell Android-based smartphone that will make its way to customers in the U.S. in the first half of this year.
Speaking of things that will ship later this year, we used our time at CES 2010 to show off a 5-inch tablet concept (see below—click on it to see a larger version, or check out this Flickr photo set to see a few more). More details later. Update: More great pics of the concept device over at Pocket-lint.com.
With that, I'll shift gears to talk about new products that will be available in a short time. Many of these products will be sporting new processor technology from Intel in the form of i3, i5 and i7 processors (desktop or mobile version, depending on the product).
For now, here's the CliffsNotes version of these new products. You can click on any images in this post to see larger versions, or check out this CES 2010 Products set on Flickr.

The slate looks interesting but more details would be nice.
Understand.. when we get closer to shipping, will definitely have much more to discuss.
Does that mean we can still argue over the final specs are are they already complete?
I want the tablet. Just make sure it has Quad band GSM AND Quad band 3G (HSPA). It would rock if it had both AT&T and T-Mo 3G support.
Any clues as to when the updated M17x will be available / visible on the website?
Good job Dell! Upgrading the line seemlessly with similar design of every line. Inspiron laptops have nice brushed metal and they are thinner too. Nice processor upgrades.
I would say there's still room for argument.
The Studio 17 seems to be going the other direction. It has gone from Full HD to HD and i-7 to i-5.
And not nothing new on the multi-touch front that Microsoft so much trumpeted with Windows 7.
Any plans to refresh or add to the Studio XPS laptop line?
Any hope for the details being released soon on the refreshed E6500 (E6510?) or the Precision M4500?
I'm waiting to pull the trigger on my next biz laptop until I find out if they will have i7/i5 options.
Frankly I'm looking for something in a business 15" category with quad core capability (820QM).
I would have thought that this would have been announced during CES. But maybe you folks are trying to spread the good news out.
I have noticed releases from other manufacturers though...
beautful face color waiting!
So what is the US release date for the OptX AW2310? I'm ready to buy a 1080p 3DVision monitor but no one has released it yet. Acer has the GD245HQ coming 1st Quarter, Asus has their VG242H but who knows when it will be released. Apparently there are preorders in the UK for the Acer set to release the 22nd of this month, maybe we will get it in the US then as well? Pricing is apparently in the $400-$500 range, I don't care, I want one. I need to know who is going to be first and when, the suspense is killing me!
So does anybody know when the OptX AW2310 is going to start shipping in the US?
...nothing about new M4400 ??
M4500 or M4410 ??
The Mini-5 looks like a great product. I'm holding off on buying another android device until it comes out. Here are a few comments on what it needs to do to be something I'd buy:
1. I would want to use it with WiFi, not a cell carrier, so I'd need to be able to buy it direct, without cell service, for a reasonable price.
2. I'd use it like a palm pilot--mostly for keeping track of my calendar and little things like that; the other capabilities built-in are a bonus. So it's essential that the basic productivity stuff be quick and easy to use. I've heard people say that entering an appointment in an iPhone or Android phone takes 2 minutes where it took them 20 seconds in a palm device. That's unacceptable. If the Dell device comes with better software for that, I'm buying a Dell. If not, I might buy a Dell if I can find good 3rd-party software....but that's a hassle I don't want.
3. If I'm using it all day to browse the web, I'm happy to re-charge daily. If all I'm doing is referring to my calendar a few times, I want the battery to last a week.
Okay, so now we know that more new Dell systems will be announced:
Models followed by their Dell codenames:
Latitude 2110 (Motts), E5410 (Fonseca 14), E5510 (Fonseca 15), E6410 (Rothschild), E6510 (Margaux) and Precision M4500 (Asics)
Any idea when the announcement will be made?
And does the E6510/M4500 sport USB 3.0?
I finally got around to viewing the video but it says removed by user, what gives?
