Dell prepping two new enterprise tablets with Windows 8.1

Dell looks to be working on two new tablets, but it remains to be seen if these will run Windows 8 and Windows RT

Dell reportedly plans to launch two new Windows 8 tablets for business customers before the year is out.

Citing supply chain sources and Dell exec Jeffrey Clarke, Digitimes reports that the firm intends to release an 8-inch Windows tablet later this year and suggests that the firm could also debut a 10.6-inch model with a Core i or Atom processor.

The tablets will most likely run Windows 8.1, the operating system update due to go live on October 18, and will be used to target enterprise customers, according to sources. The latter shouldn’t come as a much of a surprise, especially as Dell’s global vice president of personal computing Sam Burd has been talking up corporate tablets in recent times.

Despite only launching its first Windows 8 tablets last October (with the XPS 10 and Latitude 10), Dell appears to have a comprehensive tablet roadmap going forward.

A leaked roadmap from Hungarian website Tech2.hu in May detailed two incoming 10.8-inch Windows tablets for launch later in the year, while Dell veep Neil Hand confirmed that the firm is working on “future generations” of its XPS 10 Windows RT tablet and even hinted at a possible Kindle Fire rival.
