A couple of months back, Google brought check-ins to Latitude, its location-sharing service, through Google Maps 5.1 for Android. Naturally, iPhone users only recently received the same functionality, but some would argue they should be grateful to be included at all. (Kidding. Sort of.) Now, Latit

Sure, the Dell Means Business event this morning was a bit of a snore, but amidst all the talk of backlit keyboards (egads!), four-times faster hard drive encryption, and cookware-inspired design, we spotted a rather attractive (perhaps even enticing) enterprise system -- the Dell Latitude E6220 la

Dell unveiled a mighty business laptop lineup this morning, but only a few stood out -- like this Dell Latitude XT3 convertible tablet PC with a quad dual-core Intel Sandy Bridge processor inside.

Targeted at the enterprise, there's plenty of stuff in the Latitude E series (which has been floating around here and overseas, but is finally official) that Joe Consumer couldn't care less about, like \"Distributed Device Management\" and \"Client Configuration Toolkit\" to handle massive rollouts of

Remember that pair of Core i5 / i7-packing Dell Latitudes that popped up in the UK this week? Well, they've made it across the pond, processors and all. Only one purchase choice at this point for the 15.6-inch E6510 -- a Core i7-720QM and a $1,681 base price -- but the 14.1-inch E6410 gives you a l
