Looks like Dell is slowly spreading its newfound affection for retail around the globe, with the company today announcing a partnership with Bic Camera that'll see a number of its systems be sold in Bic Camera stores throughout Japan. Starting in August, the retail chain will be stocking Dell's XPS M1330, Inspiron 1520, and Inspiron 6400 laptops, along with its Inspiron 530s desktop, among other systems, apparently. This isn't the first time the two have teamed up, however, with Dell having already established so-called "Real Site" kiosks in Bic Camera shops, which let customers order Dell systems and have them shipped directly to them. Dell apparently isn't quite done with its retail expansion just yet though, telling us to "stay tuned for more."
