Dell Latitude 10 Windows 8 tablet will target business, release date set for mid-November
The Dell Latitude 10 Windows 8 tablet will be a high-end machine targetting mostly business users and Dell is targetting mid-November for the official release, but the slate could also launch in the fourth quarter of 2012.

NeoWin obtained some internal slides showing off virtually all of the details about the upcoming Dell Latitude 10, and while we already know some details, this brings an even fuller picture.

The takeaway is that there will be two battery options for the tablet - 2-cell and 4-cell - and two editions of the slate accordingly. The standard edition will be relatively thin at 10.5mm, while the security edition will have some noticeable girth and weight with its 13.4mm body. Interestingly enough, there will be a full-fledged Ethernet port and a wireless charging dock as well.

Here are the Dell Latitude spec highlights:
Also, Dell is said to be working on a Windows RT (Windows on ARM) tablet for an even earlier launch this October, but some issues with user testing might push this further away.

The thing is aimed at business users. Windows RT version will be made available for consumser users which is likely to cost less.

Why is it every time I think about Microsoft only Blue Screen of Death pops into mind.

Because you spend too much time on "shady" websites.

I do not think a 10 inch tablet would be really popular with the business crowd, I just cannot see myself or anyone picking that over a 13-15 inch ultrabook. What I think would really be great would be a 13-15 inch tablet/ultrabook/desktop dock transformer type system.

I agree, but i think dell should make a hit with this even though it dosen't kill d iPad. I could spend a thousand bucks on a tablet with windows

you might be surprised. I find myself wanting a convertible 10 inch tablet on a regular basis. Tablet only when i want to browse, but when I need to type something for school or other reasons, a keyboard would come in really handy. Why not bigger? As a tablet, it just gets too darn big.. And if thats what you are using it for more often than not, then the larger 13-15 inch size is a put-off. My 2 cents on the idea anyways. :) Asus needs to make an intel based W8 tablet very similar to their transformer series.. that would make me happy. :)

wait.. 32bit system? bugger off with that junk. There is no reason to offer anything but 64 bit in 2012. ESPECIALLY for a brand new OS. My grandma is on 64 bit.. time to get rid of this old 32 bit crap.

yeah for Dell I will look at their product to perhaps be my first tablet. i donot think windows tablets will be Ipad killers because it is well built tablet with a few hundred thousand APPs but I predict 2 years from now there will be 2 tablets on the market that will sell well !=the Apple Ipad 2= The Windows 8 intel CPU Tablet because it can thousands upon thousands of Programs that were written to run on intel or AMD x86 CPU's since the year 2000 to Windows 7 today. the Windows intel CPU tablets are not DEAD ON ARRIVAL BECAUSE THE APPS ARE ALREADY BEING USED IN PC'S AND LAPTOP'S IN USE TODAY
