U.S. customers have been able to pre-order Dell Windows 10 devices for almost a month and now it’s Canadian customers turn to be able to pre-order devices with Windows 10 installed as well. With Windows 10 launching in a couple of weeks on July 29th, certain Dell products including the Inspiron 11 2-in-1 laptop, Inspiron 15 laptop, and XPS 8700 desktop pre-ordered starting today will ship on July 29th.
Dell has worked with Microsoft to help enhance the Dell Windows 10 experience. A few of the features that Dell is excited about in working hand-in-hand with Microsoft on Windows 10 include:
- Screen. Dell collaborated with Microsoft to maximize the touch-enabled functionality of our devices and enhance the front of screen experience, similar to what you would expect from other commonly-used devices, such as smart phones. As we roll out Dell PCs, tablets and 2-in-1s, our customers will enjoy a great touch interface on the industry’s best high-resolution InfinityEdge screen for use with Microsoft Continuum.
- Sign on. Dell is an early adopter of Intel’s RealSense 3D cameras. We were the first to launch RealSense on our Venue tablets and are bringing the capability to our mainstream Inspiron laptops, All-in-one desktops, and 2-in-1s. We’re pretty bullish on what RealSense will do for the facial recognition login with Windows Hello, allowing you to securely and instantly log into your PC. We think this is a feature you will come to love – doing away with forgetting passwords once and for all. Expect to see more of this technology embedded across our full product portfolio.
- Audio. Dell’s long-standing relationship with Waves MaxxAudio allows us to offer superior audio features, including improved performance for media playback, voice communications and automatic speech recognition. Dell has been on the cutting edge of audio integration, and folding Microsoft’s digital assistant Cortana into the PC experience will be done seamlessly.
- Support. Industry-leading support services keep your Windows devices up and running longer, so you can get the most out of them for an extended period of time. ProSupport Plus for PCs and Tablets for commercial customers and Dell Premium Support for consumers both offer OS and software help should you need it – and that includes Windows 10.
With their free upgrade program for Windows 7 and 8.x customers, Microsoft is really pushing hard on getting people to upgrade to Windows 10 and having vendors on board shipping Windows 10 devices on the same day as the launch can only help.
