Dell Latitude 10 tablet to work with Windows 8
It’s not a secret that major hardware makers are currently working on Windows 8-powered tablets and Dell, being one of them, will have its W8 tablets too. Surprisingly though at least one of them will belong to the company’s Latitude line.
Dell has always kept the Latitude brand for business computers so the upcoming Dell Latitude 10 tablet, powered by Windows 8, may also target business clients but this remains to be seen. If so the company will almost surely release other Windows 8 tablets designed for the casual user.
In any case the novelty packs a 10.1-inch, 1366×768 pixel screen, a dual-core Intel Atom Clover Trail processor, 2 GB of RAM memory and a choice between a hard drive or a solid state drive. The Dell Latitude 10 will also have a 2 MP front-facing camera, an 8 MP rear camera and 2-cell or 4-cell batteries. Size-wise the tablet measures 10.8”x7”x0.4” and weighs about 1.6 pounds. The 2-cell battery will offer up to 8 hours of run time, while the 4-cell battery ups the time to 12 hours. The batteries can be removed in case of need.
Being x86 CPU-based the tablet can run legacy x86 applications too while at the same time meeting all Windows 8 requirements for the new Metro style.
The information presented here is unfortunately preliminary so there may be changes in the hardware specs before the tablet becomes available.
