Dell Windows 7 tablet coming in September, at the earliest

dell-windows 7Last week, a Dell executive had cold words to say about the iPad, especially where it relates to business. Many of these claims (like a $1500 price point) were false. The nasty talk may have been a bit premature, however. Forbes is reporting that Dell’s planned 10-inch Windows 7 tablet may not hit shelves until September, at the earliest.

This delay is odd since Dell has been talking about the device since Oct. 2010, and confirmed its plans in February, saying it would release a business-centric tablet this year. Competitors like Asus have already released Windows 7 tablets.

Dell has been trying to break into the tablet market for some time now, though its Dell Streak 5 and 7-inch Android tablets have yet to take off and sell in volume. Despite the setbacks, Dell remains committed to developing tablet computers. We’re expecting its next tablet will be incredibly affordable.

The camera on this Android phone is confusing, but I love it
The back of the Tecno Camon 30 Premier.

I’m all for a lot of detail, and love to hear about the new technology that’s inside a smartphone I’m about to test, but when I have to search for an explanation of what something means, it’s not a good start. The Tecno Camon 30 Premier suffers from this problem, as it has a lot of cool camera tech that is explained in a mystifying way.

So, I thought the best thing to do was to just ignore the tech speak and find out if it takes great photos the old-fashioned way.
What's the problem?

The 5 best phones with IR blasters in 2024
The OnePlus 12's camera module.

IR blasters used to be a common component in smartphones, with big products from Samsung, OnePlus, and TCL giving users access to the cool gadget. Phones equipped with IR blasters could be used as a universal remote for your other electronics, making it easy to control your gear without the need for their default controller (which might be clunky and unintuitive to use).

Fast forward today, and attempting to find a smartphone with an IR blaster is shockingly difficult. What was once common technology is now relegated to just a handful of smartphones. You won't find any iPhones or Galaxy phones with IR blasters, but that doesn't mean you have to settle for a poorly reviewed smartphone if you're interested in the tech. You will, however, probably need to settle for either OnePlus or Xiaomi, as they're the two key players still churning out powerful smartphones equipped with IR blasters.

Natural Titanium iPhone 15 Pro with Chopper and BD-1 droids around it.

Apple releases multiple iPhones every year, offering folks choice in terms of size and features. In 2024, the iPhone 15 lineup includes four distinct models.

The regular iPhone 15 and iPhone 15 Plus are great for those who don’t need a telephoto lens and don’t care about the Action button or the 1TB of storage. But anyone who wants a more “pro” experience has the iPhone 15 Pro and iPhone 15 Pro Max.
