Dell Business Notebooks to Go Wide?

In the notebook world, is wider really better? Apparently Dell thinks so. While most people may agree, I am willing to bet that it will also affect battery life and that is not likely being disclosed to the public.

Dell appears poised to offer smaller, lighter and more capable wireless notebooks for businesses.

The computer maker will likely preview a new lineup of Latitude notebooks on March 28, at a small event at a New York steakhouse.

The event, an e-mail sent by Dell said, will offer “a preview of Dell’s next-generation mobile platforms. Representatives from Dell’s mobile broadband providers, Cingular and Verizon Wireless, and Intel will also be in attendance.

“The event will include interactive discussions on a variety of topics including Dell’s mobile strategy and the impact of mobile broadband, security, product design and durability.”

Aside from sporting the latest Intel hardware, including the chip maker’s dual-core Core Duo processors, the machines are expected to be more portable—both in that they weigh less and because they will incorporate wide-area wireless technology—and to make greater use of wide-screen displays.
