Dell Windows 8 tablet specs leak

Dell Windows 8 tablet specs leak
There is much debate as to whether Microsoft can become a formidable opponent in the mobile arena against Android and iOS or if its efforts are too little, too late. While we anxiously await the arrival of Windows 8 tablets to get a better handle on what Microsoft is bringing to the table, it looks as though Dell’s first offering just got leaked.

According to the slide leaked by Neowin, the tablet will be a Dell Latitude 10. Physically the slate will be 10” x 7” x 0.4” and weigh just 1.57 lbs. In short, a tad thicker and heavy than an iPad, but not by much. So the question becomes, “What’s under the hood?”

An Intel Clover Trail Atom Dual Core with 2GB of RAM and Intel Integrated Graphics will power the Dell Latitude 10. It will have up to 128GB of storage available, rear facing 8-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front facing camera, fingerprint reader, and a bunch of the regular important, but not overly exciting stuff such as Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, optional mobile broadband, built-in speakers, micro USB charging port, and a stereo headphone/microphone combo jack. All of this will be faced with a 10.1” HD (1366 x 768) capacitive, multi touch display with optional stylus.

One interesting spec of this tablet is that it will feature a removable battery. Rumor has it there will be two flavors of batteries available. A smaller one that will keep you running for 6 to 8 hours and a larger battery that will give you 10 to 12 hours.

No word on pricing just yet, but so far this looks like it could be quite an impressive device. We can’t wait to hear more about it and eventually try it out and see how it stands up to the competition.

On the super plus side of this dell Windows 8 Tablet device is that it is not dead on arrival as far as apps are concerned because in it's desktop mode it will run thousands upon thousands of PC business programs , PC games and Windows specialty programs as well as control Windows peripheral devices. The real glory of Intel CPU controlled Windows 8 Tablets is their backward compatability with most of the Windows PC programs written since the year 2000 when Windows XP came out. The Ipad may still be more popular and out sell Windows 8 Tablets because of it's ease of use and sheer number of Apps but as far as i am concerned the first Tablet computer that I will buy will be a Windows 8 Intel CPU controlled tablet computer because right out the box a Person can get some serious work done with it when you hook it up to a wireless mouse and keyboard. that is one hell of a plus plus to me

Now i'm interested to see how this clover trail will stack up against OMAP 5, Snapdragon Quadcore, and Exynos 5. Exciting! The resolution of this tablet is too low for a high end device, btw - it should be FULLHD

Finally, tablet meets computer. With a good price, we have ourselves a winner.

Who's going to buy a device with a name like 'Dell Latitude 10'? It doesn't stand out, it makes the device sound dull and it doesn't bare any resemblence to what the device actually is. Unfortunately, the name Dell itself has become off-putting.

Woow that's exciting. Of course like everyone else i'm wondering about the price also. So far looks verryy good.

I'm curious how Dell would price this because it could potentially cannibalize the sales of their own laptops and ultrabooks.

The streaks suck because of Dell. They were of 2 of the thickest & ugliest tabs on the market. Not to mention the specs. It was a cop out 4 Dell to blame Android for their lack of sales. Samsung did what Dell couldn't with the Note. Which beyond being a great device, sold very well.

The graphics & resolution suck. Also, expect it to be expensive. Will probably be more than $800.

Looks like it will be expensive. If it is reasonbly priced, it will be fantastic.

Holy shenanigans. This thing is gonna be a beast. Only downside, not a higher resolution screen, or else I would be all over this

Yeah I was thinking the same thing, but that is the standard resolution on laptops so it should work nicely in terms of uniformity.

This should be better than both of the streaks because there is no android on board!!! Should be a decent tablet!!
