SAN FRANCISCO --(Business Wire)--
Dell today announced the extension of its collaboration with Google (News - Alert) to
further meet the needs of the evolving workforce. As part of its growing
relationship with Google, Dell is developing Dell Chromebox for

dispersed teams conduct meetings from a large variety of devices, from
nearly anywhere, and collaborate 'face-to-face' in a virtual
environment. Dell (News - Alert) Chromebox for meetings will include a high-definition
camera, a combined microphone and speaker unit and a remote control to
enable users to quickly connect to a display in a conference room, and
recreate the 'in room' meeting experience regardless of all

collaboration between the two companies. Dell recently released its Dell
Chromebook 11 for Education to provide a feature-rich,
cost-effective solution for the classroom, as wel as its range of Dell

additional innovative solutions that will further enhance people's
interaction with personal and professional content to help them make the
best decisions possible in the office, in school or on the road.

solution that gives professionals the opportunity to connect,
collaborate and meet face-to-face no matter where they are," commented
Neil Hand, vice president and general manager, Dell Tablet Group. "We
are committed to enabling our customers to be productive and effective
in any professional setting, and improve the office meeting experience."
"We have seen our relationship with Dell grow over the last six months,"
commented Felix Lin, Director of Product Management at Google. "The Dell
Chromebook 11 has been well received by schools, and we are delighted to
work with Dell to develop a Chromebox solution for businesses that
brings the valuable 'in-person' element to meetings."
Dell Chromebox for meetings will be available in the coming months. Stay
tuned for further updates.
