Dell Latitude ON arrives on Z600

Posted on Tuesday, September 29 2009 @ 21:58:50 CEST by

The new Dell Latitude Z600 is the first notebook from Dell to feature the full hardware and software implementation of Latitude ON. This is basically a system on a system, it's an instant-on Linux operating system that runs on a low-voltage ARM processor.
Latitude ON is basically a system on a system. It's based on a dedicated low-voltage ARM processor (Texas Instrument's OMAP 3430 processor) that runs a slimmed-down version of a Linux OS. It allows a user to boot into the contained OS environment to give you always-on access to an Firefox-based Internet browser (without Flash support) and critical business information while using a fraction of the battery power your laptop uses when it's running a full OS. Essentially, you can quickly access all the information you're used to accessing on a smartphone using the larger screen and keyboard that your laptop provides.

Here's a more detailed look at the features:

  • Instant access (about 2 seconds) to business information (E-mail, calendar, contacts, Internet browser & Citrix Receiver client)
  • MS Exchange integration or POP e-mail Access
  • Always on/connected - the module continues to run regardless of the state of the main OS
  • Ability to view MS Office and .pdf document attachments
  • Long battery life (about 17 hours on a 6-cell battery)
  • Designed for the future with upgradable infrastructure (flash-based software updates)
  • More info at Dell.
