ROUND ROCK, Texas -- November 27, 2012

Dell today is announcing enhancements to its Dell Wyse PocketCloud app
portfolio to help connect individuals with their professional and personal
content anytime, anywhere from mobile devices or remote computers. PocketCloud
Explore and PocketCloud Web provide a secure and fast way to remotely connect
to users’ PCs and Macs from Android, iOS and Windows RT devices, including the
Dell XPS 10 tablet, or any Web browser, enabling users to access and share any
content.

Today, users are increasingly looking to gain access to their personal and
professional content on a number of different devices, sometimes running on a
variety of operating systems, and PocketCloud enables them to easily create a
“personal cloud” to search, view, organize, and share content among mobile
devices and computers. Documents, videos, photos, music, and other files are
readily available on tablets and smartphones with PocketCloud Explore, or in a
desktop browser with PocketCloud Web.

PocketCloud Explore

Today, Dell Wyse is announcing the availability of PocketCloud Explore for
iPad and Windows RT to provide users with additional choices for remotely
accessing their personal and professional content. The new releases complement
the existing versions of PocketCloud apps for iOS and Android devices, which
since their launches have had more than 3.7 million downloads and consistent 4
to 4.5 star ratings on both the Apple App Store and Google Play.

PocketCloud Web

The company is also announcing the release of its PocketCloud Web app and
service, which brings all the features and benefits of the PocketCloud Explore
apps to any Web browser. Users can now utilize a public computer and remotely
access all the content – office files, photos, videos and music - on their
personal and professional computers and stored in their own personal cloud.
For multimedia content, users can upload and download files between their
devices and remote computers, share content by streaming audio and video files
from their remote computers and open remote files through a viewer or download
and edit within a compatible local application.

PocketCloud Companion

Also, Dell is announcing PocketCloud Companion, the client broker for Windows
and Mac operating systems that provides access to content and applications
stored on remote computers. PocketCloud Companion will be installed as
standard on all Dell XPS and Dell Inspiron computers shipped in North America
starting Nov. 15, enabling users to easily build their own personal cloud to
remotely manage their content from their smartphone and tablet device.

Availability

PocketCloud Explore for iPad and Window RT are available immediately as free
downloads in the Apple App Store and Windows Store respectively. Registration
for PocketCloud Web is available at www.pocketcloud.com.

Quotes

“I find PocketCloud invaluable when I am doing my rounds to see patients,”
said Dr. Michael Klein, a pediatric physician at Middlesex Hospital in
Middletown, Conn. “Being able to get the applications and information on my
iPad when and where I need it helps me complete routine charting in a fraction
of the time. The additional mobility is particularly helpful, because it means
that I can go to where the children are and update information on the fly
rather than having to log information or find a desktop to make amendments.”

“Users require access to their digital assets at their fingertips wherever
they might be,” said Tarkan Maner, vice president and general manager, Cloud
Client Computing at Dell. “With the larger and more user-friendly interface
available on tablet devices, users can do it all, from sharing personal
memories to editing professional documents. Dell Wyse PocketCloud solutions
make cloud computing less ‘pie in the sky,’ and more ‘palm of your hand,’ as
users are able to not only access all their assets from their mobile devices,
but also change, upload and delete them at will.”

“Dell continues down a path to capitalize on opportunities to address the
ever-increasing pressures of BYOD with new consumer solutions for easy data
access while also adhering to demands of IT to create secure and manageable
environments,” said Stacy Crook, program manager, mobile enterprise at IDC.
“Dell’s updated portfolio of PocketCloud services enables consumers to easily
access, view and share content across personal clouds, within multiple
operating environments, while providing IT with a secure means of providing
remote access to professional content.”
