Dell Expands Mobile Broadband Options for Latitude Customers

Dell understands its customers desire the flexibility to work when and where they want with fast connection speeds. To help customers be productive and connect anytime, anywhere, to the information that matters most, Dell is expanding its mobile broadband partners and options for its Latitude portfolio. Starting today, customers now can order embedded mobile broadband from T-Mobile for the first time on the Latitude E6220, E6320, and E6420.

Previously, Dell offered mobile broadband options on its business client products from AT&T, Verizon and Sprint. With the addition of T-Mobile, we are providing our customers with additional wireless options that best fit their needs.  

With embedded Gobi 3000 technology from Qualcomm, Dell Latitude laptops can connect to mobile broadband networks worldwide, making it easier than ever to stay connected from more places. Customers using these laptops on T-Mobile USA’s mobile broadband network can enjoy blazing-fast data speeds for video conferencing, HD video streaming and easily send and receive large files and images on the go.

In addition to the robust wireless options, Dell’s Latitude systems are specifically designed to ensure users stay productive while mobile. The systems are built to last and stand up to travel with a hard-wearing MIL-STD 810G tested Tri-Metal design, a highly durable anodized brushed aluminum display back, strong, magnesium, alloy-wrapped corners and a tough powder-coated magnesium base. This business-rugged durability carries through, inside and out, with a spill-resistant keyboard, a protective LCD seal and a 360-degree LCD bumper for added screen protection that can outlast the bumps and spills of everyday work. Mobile workers can also enjoy outstanding productivity while in flight or in low-light settings with the optional backlit keyboard, long-living battery options and hot optical external media modules.

From the recently announced Latitude ST business tablet to the award-winning E-family professional laptops to the specialty laptops for unique work environments, Dell Latitude laptops have the customer-inspired design and technology options to fit nearly any business. They offer the easy manageability, comprehensive security and world-class service and support IT managers need to support end user productivity. And with integrated solutions like Dell Data Protection | Encryption and virtualization options, Dell can help companies of any size manage whatever devices their workforce needs.
