Dell’s Windows 8 and RT tablets now available to buy with prices starting from $499

October 24, 2012

The XPS 10 tablet is powered by Qualcomm’s dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor and sports a 10.1-inch 1366 x 768 resolution touchscreen display, dual-facing cameras and comes with 32GB or 64GB of memory.

With the device running Windows RT, it will come with Home Office & Student 2013 already running on the tablet.

Pricing for this Windows RT tablet starts at $499.99 for the 32GB model but inclines to $599 for a model with double that amount of storage. Adding a keyboard/docking station will add $180 to the overall price.

Dell also announced the price and availability details for the Latitude 10 tablet, the 10-inch version running Windows 8 Pro and promising 64GB of SSD storage, 2GB of RAM and the dual-core Intel Atom Z2760 processor.

This model will start at a base price of $649, although an extra $100 will get you a productivity dock with four USB 2.0 ports, an Ethernet jack and a HDMI output.

Those happy to shell out $849 for the tablet will get both the dock and built-in 3G, while optional extras exist in the form of the $49 stylus, an extra battery ($79), and Dell Data Protection and Encryption support.

Further optional extras in the form of a fingerprint sensor and smart card reader will be available from 2013.

Dell says that both tablets are now available to purchase, with delivery to come in the ‘coming days and weeks’.
