Dell might not be the market force that it once was, but this does not mean that it is a pushover. No sir, we have received reliable information that their extremely thin client device that would fit snugly in just about any pocket, is being prepared to be shipped real soon. Also known as Project Ophelia, this particular device has been shown off by Dell since January, and it has now gone through the folks over at the FCC, which can only mean one thing – it is extremely close to a formal release in the market now.
The Dell Project Ophelia will more or less arrive with the innards that contain a highly affordable ARM-based computer that will have Google’s Android as the operating system of choice. It will not be marketed as a standalone device, but rather, will be bundled with the company’s Wyse software so that you will have to log into it before being able to control it remotely using Citrix, VMWare, or other virtualization and remote desktop solutions.
In a nutshell, when you plug the diminutive Wyse Cloud Client into your TV or monitor, hook up a mouse and/or keyboard, you are able to make use of full versions of Windows apps that in reality, are running on a remote server.
