Specs are leaking out on entry into Tablet computing


The Latitude XT will be Dell’s first attempt to test the waters of tablet computing. In the past Dell has preferred to stick to the “Ultra Portable” market space, seeing no real need or possible growth in the tablet PC market space. But the times are a changin’ and Dell now wants to cash in.

According to the reports that we have been reading, Dell’s Latitude XT tablet PC will be built on a new design that will run the ultra-low voltage Core 2 Duo at 1.2GHz, sporting a 12.1” display offering 1280x800 resolution. The unit will use the ATI Radeon Xpress 1250 to power the integrated graphics, and offer 1GB of RAM in its base configuration with a 80GB hard drive, 802.11n wireless, Bluetooth 2.0, USB 2.0, and a Firewire port. The Latitude XT will offer a media bay that can support a variety of optical drive options, including a dual layer DVD burner. The Latitude will also set what might be the start of a new trend by offering either florescent or LED backlighting for the display.

According to various sources that continue to leak the information, Dell will launch the Latitude XT tablet PC on November 16th in Europe and December 3rd in North America. As of this posting, the unit has yet to appear on Dell’s European Web site, which might indicate a delay in the European launch. Some have suggested that the delay in the launch could be due to the recent LCD shortage that has been affecting many major laptop manufacturers as of late.
