Fast, easy, and secure mobile app that lets you pick the perfect system to pursue your passions, 'do more'
ROUND ROCK, Texas, Sep 19, 2011 --Expert reviews, 24/7 customer sales support, free shipping(1) and innovative collaborative shopping features distinguish Dell.com --The ultimate hub for holiday shopping
Dell today introduced the Dell Mobile App for Android, a dual-purpose shopping and support application that helps people quickly and easily find the right solutions to pursue their personal passions.
The introduction of the Dell Mobile App -- available for download now from the Android Market or by typing www.dell.com/appdownload into the browser of any Android mobile device -- reflects the company's commitment to expanding the reach of Dell.com, a trusted hub for information and stellar support.
Dell.com -- one of the world's largest online CE retailers -- offers robust 24/7 sales support and free shipping(1) for all Consumer laptops and desktops. Dell also recently introduced an innovative live chat feature, through which customers can connect with experts who can guide them through the purchase path, address any questions or diagnose an issue with their Dell laptop or desktop. Additionally, Screen Share, a collaborative shopping function, lets visitors to Dell.com share web pages with friends and family so they can solicit their input and advice in real-time.
The new Dell Mobile App delivers much of the same functionality as the broader Dell.com site. With the new Dell Mobile App, people can quickly browse and compare products, read product reviews and place orders -- quickly and securely -- all from their mobile device. And regardless of whether you're shopping from Dell.com or via the new Dell Mobile App, customers can select from Dell's popular Ships Fast laptops and desktops that are pre-configured, stocked and ready to ship the next business day (some restrictions apply).(2)

"With our new Android app, we're extending the leading edge functionality of Dell.com into the mobile space, and making it even easier to find the right system for your needs."
