The tablet is called the Latitude 10, runs Intel’s new Atom system-on-chip (SoC) and boasts a 10-inch 1366 x 768 resolution IPS display which is protected by Corning’s toughened Gorilla Glass.
The Latitude 10 comes with 2GB of RAM, up to 128GB of SSD storage, and offers connections for USB 2.0, an SD card and micro USB, as well as dual-facing cameras (2MP camera on the front, 8MP on the rear).
Although those features may look run of the mill and not much different from the Windows 7-powered Latitude ST, the Latitude 10 does have a few nice features for business users.
The tablet can come with the optional Wacom Active stylus, and includes a tablet dock which itself presents four USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet connection and audio output. There’s also a swappable battery and robust security tools like the Dell Data Protection Encryption software, which encrypts all data from the hard drive to the USB port.
Citing the tablet’s possible use in security-conscious environments like government and healthcare, Dell is also including a fingerprint reader and smart card reader for two-factor authentication.
Dell refused to announce a price at this time, but says that it will reveal this as well as further availability details at the launch of Windows 8 next month.
