Dell 6430u Ultrabook to be first with WiGig

Posted on 24 October 2012, Last updated on 24 October 2012 by

The Dell 6430U now ready to go, and Dell have just revealed something very interesting and unique. Not only is this a MIL-STD 810G Ultrabook but it’s going to be the first with WiGig – a standard that not only gives you wireless LAN but also transports video and audio to WiGig  docking stations. Now that’s what we like to see, and earlier than expected!

 

Dell Latitude 6430 Ultrabook_4

We’ve known about the Dell Latitude 6430u for some time now availability in Germany means the full specification set is now revealed.

Pricing has not been revealed at this stage but we suspect that this could be a B2B only product for now. We’ve got a query out about WiGig accessories.

It creates a small problem for our database though. Is WiGig a wireless network or a personal area network feature. We’re tempted to say PAN as this is a short-range technology.
