Securely connects to Windows desktops and applications running on back-end systems from all leading infrastructure providers including Citrix, Microsoft and VMware.

Flexibly powered zero-battery device gets power from the attached display monitor via its MHL interface to the monitor’s MHL port, or separately via its own USB interface. No batteries to charge or change.

Remembers settings for each individual to enhance usability.

Compatible with many existing Dell Wyse thin clients and software products.

Sounds interesting... except for the whole cloud stuff, which is a bit of a turn off for me.
They might squash some of the smaller outfits, given their name recognition and the larger market penetration Dell has, but i hope not. I've got a Minix NeoG4 and, aside from only having only 1 usb port (easily fixed with a hub), no bluetooth and its adequate wifi reception that needs improvement, i'm extremely satisfied with the product and have highly recommended it to family & friends.
And, let's face it, whatever Dell comes out with, companies in China will most likely offer pretty much the same-- if not better-- and for less.

Android sticks are definitely the way to go though, and Dell should sell a ton of these if the price is $50-100.
