As part of our launch of ten new laptops this week, we held an event on the Orient Express, largely to exemplify all the mobility features of the new range. Where better to do that than on a train? We were joined by around seventy journalists from across Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
As well as hearing from Dell spokespeople about the laptop breakthrough features, we got to enjoy a sumptuous lunch and take the opportunity to socialise and take in the countryside. I enjoyed meeting some familiar faces as well as making new friends and Twitter buddies.
I have been very impressed with the real-time journalism that I’ve seen over the past few days. Check out a great summary of the day here from LJ Rich, on her blog Geek Chic and from her good friend Annie Mole. I also posted a few photos from this event on our Dell Flickr site where you can see our journalist “digital nomads” in action.
I did some filming on the train, asking several of the Dell team what feedback they had received from the journalists so far. Watch the video below to get a summary of the day.
