Canonical and Dell announced that Dell laptops pre-loaded with Ubuntu will be sold in 850 retail outlets across India.
This initiative is similar to the campaign Canonical and Dell jointly launched to sell Ubuntu computers in about 220 stores in China.
Starting with June 21st, new Inspiron 14R and new Inspiron 15R will be available with Ubuntu pre-installed in India. More models will be released later in the year.
The retail outlets will display Ubuntu-branded marketing collateral in-store, with trained staff explaining the advantages of Ubuntu to consumers.
Too bad I bought Inspiron 15R with Windows just couple of months back but I will surely visit Dell stores to check out these laptops once they are launched.
