Dell confirms Windows 8-based Latitude 10 tablet

In May, Neowin received and posted a leaked render of Dell's Latitude 10 business tablet made for Windows 8. Today, the PC maker finally confirmed that the tablet was indeed real in a new press release that also introduced two more Windows 8 PCs made for business use.

The press release doesn't go into much detail on the hardware specs of the Latitude 10, but hands-on demos on web sites such as Engadget confirm the leaked render's specs; a 10.1 inch screen running on Intel's Clover Trail processor, with 2 GB of RAM and up to 128 GB SSD for storage.

Above specs obtained by Neowin back in May.

It also has a removable battery and a number of ports, including a SD card slot, a USB 2.0 port, a microUSB charging port, and a mini-HDMI port. Dell will sell an optional dock for the tablet which will add even more USB ports, a full HDMI port and more.

Dell's press release today also reveals the Latitude 6430u Ultrabook. The 14-inch notebook, based on Intel's Ultrabook specs, is unfortunately not touch enabled like a number of other upcoming Windows 8-based notebooks. Dell also revealed the OptiPlex 9010 23-inch All-in-One PC today,  with a 23 inch screen.

Dell did not reveal prices for any of these Windows 8 devices, but they will be released in late October, around the time Windows 8 itself launches.

Disappointed. I was hoping the latitude tablet would be a hybrid with attachable keyboard that added battery life, trackpad and ports as well as support for the E-Dock connector so it could be quickly attached to a workplace environment for things like dual-screen support.

I think Dell have really missed an opportunity here to offer 3 modes of working with a single device:
1) Docked with full dual-screen DP/DVI screens
2) Portable with keyboard + trackpad/external mouse
3) Detached as a touch-based tablet

That's what this business customer wants.

Only 2GB RAM? Seems a bit measly...

Does the dock incorporate a keyboard or is it the usual "have some more ports" variety?

I lose interest whenever I see a Windows 8 tablet running at its base resolution.

True. Especially, when we see tablets (Kindle 8.9) much cheaper and smaller, running better screens

Meh, looks rather bland in my perspective, nothing really captivating about the outside, though the inside essentials seems rather promising. Pretty sure Dell, could have produced a more-over appealing device, since they are targeting the tablet market, especially with the copious OEM's wanting a slice of the "market cake." I do say though, I am overwhelmed with all the tablets that are coming into play with Windows 8. Seems like a very promising future for the OS....

Bezel looks big in the pics but apart from that should come in @ the lower end of the pro market with that screen res. Also nice to see the option for a stylus.

for 10+ inch tablets which you can't grasp with your single hand from behind, the bezel HAS to be big otherwise you can't hold them without getting your fingers on the screen. that's why the ipad also has a big bezel.

I disagree that it HAS to be as big as it APPEARS in that image. In any case this is a subjective aesthetic opinion. Any technical limits do not stop one making a personal opinion on the overall design.
