Dell Technologies clocked better-than-anticipated Q2 results as its PC division gave record income and “IT investment stays healthy.” The firm clocked Q2 earnings of $4.83 a share, or $4.5 Billion, on income of $23.4 Billion, up 2% as compared to the same period a year back. Non-GAAP profit for the quarter was $2.15 for each share.
Wall Street was seeking for Dell to clock non-GAAP Q2 earnings of $1.47 a share on income of $23.27 Billion. In an interview, Jeff Clarke (vice-chairman at Dell Technologies) claimed: “We are in the early phases of a tech-driven investment cycle. IT investment stays healthy and our business boosters stay solid.”
The big shock was PC unit of Dell Technologies, which gave an income of $11.7 Billion, up 6% as compared to the same period a year back. Commercial income was $9.1 Billion, up 12% from the Q2 a year back. Consumer income dropped 12%, but the PC business of Dell is more secured to enterprise demand. Operating revenue was $982 Million for the Q2.
Speaking of Dell, the firm earlier declared a new monitor: a huge 4K 75-inch touchscreen panel particularly meant for educational reasons as a kind of blackboard—although it is fundamentally only a huge 4K TV.
The Dell 75 4K Interactive Touch Monitor is developed for interactive teaching and collaborative work. The screen supports 20-point multi-touch, so that various consumers can operate together on one screen, and operates with either styluses or hands, which the firm claims is “well-matched with literally all industry-standard tools.” It’s a similar concept to Surface Hub by Microsoft or Jamboard by Google, although with a greater aim on education and a feeble overall software effort from Dell.
The screen also has a “Dell Screen Drop” functionality, which Dell states is “the first accessibility feature in the world enhancing reachability for consumers operating from various heights.”
