Burd said that Dell has sold “hundreds of thousands” of its XPS-10 and Latitude 10 tablets, both running Windows OS. While these numbers are no where near iPad or Android tablets, they’re nonetheless impressive regarding the total market share of Windows tablets. Burd also added that his company is expecting an increase in sales from the corporate sector, which comprises most of its clients.

But, Dell isn’t limiting itself in tablets only. “Looking ahead five years, we expect devices and form factors to continue to change. There will still be a need for ‘static’ computing on desktops, but there will be a real need for mobile devices. There’s a lot of discussion about how that fits into wearable devices like we’ve seen with Google Glass and watches. We’re looking at a world of lots of connected devices,” Burd explained. “We haven’t announced anything, but we are looking at the technology in that space,” he added.

When talking to the Guardian, Burd also revealed that he “don’t see any magic new form factor like the iPad.” And “there are challenges in cost, and how to make it a really good experience.”

All in all, we can expect to see Dell in the wearable tech market within a year, possibly with gadgets like smartwatches and such.
