Dell launches Latitude XT2 tablet PC with multitouch feature

Dell announced this week its Latitude XT2, industry's first Tablet PC with multitouch screen capabilities which will allow users to use natural gestures like a pinch or tap for scrolling, panning, rotating and zooming. There's also a programmable double-tap feature to launch a browser or turn the screen off to save power. Last year Dell released a software module to add multitouch capabilities to the original Latitude XT.

Below are some of the features of the new Latitude XT2

  • Innovative multi-touch responsive screen
  • Dual-digitizer for low pressure, high touch accuracy
  • New LCD-based wireless antenna design for excellent connectivity
  • 1.2-GHz or 1.4-GHz Intel Core 2 Duo SU9300 processors
  • DDR3 RAM up to 5GB
  • Intel Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator 4500MHD
  • 120-GB, 5,400-RPM SATA HDD or 128-GB SSD
  • 12-inch daylight viewable display
  • Up to 12 hours of battery life with 2 or 6-cell batteries
  • Optional mobile broadband capabilities
  • Optional fingerprint and a smart card reader

Dell currently offers any of these Operating Systems

  • Windows Vista Ultimate
  • Windows Vista Business
  • Windows Vista Business 64-Bit
  • Windows Vista Ultimate with Downgrade Rights Service to Windows XP Tablet Edition
  • Windows Vista Business with Downgrade Rights Service to Windows XP Tablet Edition

Probably Windows XP downgrade would disappear very soon and Windows 7 editions would replace it

The Latitude XT2's pricing starts at USD 2,399 and you can order yours here
