Bookmarks can be accessed from the home screen itself with the help of the Honeycomb browser widget.

How Dell will deal with the effect of Honeycomb’s interface on its battery life is still to be seen. Motorola XOOM may prove a tough competition for the Dell Honeycomb tablet as it too has incorporated Google’s OS.

Dell® to add tiering technology to its storage

After acquiring Compellent, Dell has announced plans of using the company’s data tiering technology in its line of storage arrays. According to the officials of Dell, the company has purchased each share of Compellent for $27.75, which makes it a deal worth $940 million. With the total equity price of $940 million the aggregate price for the purchase is roughly $800 million. The most important and significant intellectual property that Compellent had was data tiering technology. After having acquired this technology now Dell wants to offer to its customers the option of shifting the less frequently used data to the higher-capacity but slow in performance SATA hard drives.

Using this tiering technology Dell would be effectively able to reduce the initial costs for its storage system. This would be made possible because the data tiering technology decreases the cost of ownership. One thing that is common between Compellent and Dell is their ambition to assist cloud customers and also regulate their storage investments.

Now having acquired Compellent, Dell plans to combine the best of both the companies and thus win the confidence of its consumers. Dell seeks to help strengthen the customer relationship and also boost customer loyalty towards Dell. For this Dell officials have to make sure that they prove themselves to be the best. HP acquired 3Par, a company that offers services similar to those given by Compellent. An advantage with HP is that regarding 3Par’s SANs. The SANs have an ASIC, that is, Application-Specific Integrated Circuit that helps to offload the advanced functions. Thus, it will give superior performance to its systems and help to target higher-end customers. So you as a consumer have a lot to decide. Get yourself ready to make a tough choice. Brace up to witness a close contest between HP and Dell.

The Android 3.0 platform – the Honeycomb has been specifically designed with large 7 and 10 inch tablets in mind. Although manufacturers like HTC are using the Gingerbread and other proprietary solutions jointly, to bring about the kind of performance to match the iPads or RIM Pads and probably even better it, the combinations of hardware and OS and performing apps on the same, are going to set the rules in the market.

The MWC 2011 also saw the massive growth of apps, app developers, carriers and operators and a host of related problems like revenue sharing, OS updation, standardization, mobile security, and many more areas. MWC also saw the growth of the WAC – Wholesale Applications Community, a platform to provide opportunities for global developers to create, synchronize and sell applications using standard and open API (Application Programmable Interfaces). This alliance of telecommunication companies is focused towards an open application platform, as also provision of a unified service platform for carriers towards aggregating mobile Internet applications. This will definitely help in better revenue generation and provide an excellent cloud based service experience to all smartphone users. The MWC 2011 has been acclaimed to be a success in such tablet and smartphone related issues.
