For example, IT administrators will have the ability to manage and secure the device. Much like a smartphone, if the thumb PC is lost or stolen, IT administrators will be able to remotely shut down the device and wipe it clean. Dell is also building features so IT can track the activities on the device.
Ophelia will also come with Wyse's PocketCloud, which allows users to access files stored on PCs, servers or mobile devices.
The device could be attractive to sales staff, field personnel, and maintenance crews, King said.
Dell has said it will sell Ophelia through its website and also through wireless carriers and cable companies. Dell originally announced Project Ophelia at the International CES in January.
