Is Dell not out of the Windows RT business after all?

Earlier today, we reported that Dell had stopped taking orders for its only Windows RT product, the XPS 10, on its website. That means that Microsoft is currently the only company selling a Windows RT device. However, a new report claims that Dell does indeed have an ARM-based Windows tablet in the works that it will announced next week in a press event.

Geek World Central has the hardware specs, as well as an image, of the alleged Dell ARM tablet. The report claims the unnamed product will have an 10.8 inch screen with a resolution of 1920x1080. It is supposed to have a Qualcomm processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and Office 2013 Home and Student installed. Battery life is supposed to be 10 hours.

Dell will show two new Windows 8.1 tablets, both using Intel's Bay Trail processor, at the same event, according to the report. One will have a 10.8 inch screen with a resolution of 1920x1080 with 2 GB of RAM and 10 hours of battery life, but will have 64 GB of storage and a built in 4G LTE antenna. Dell is also supposed to show off more of its previously revealed 8-inch Venue tablet at this press event. The new report claims it will have 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of storage and Office 2013 Home and Student 2013 installed.

There's no word yet on what Dell will charge for any of its new tablets nor any specific launch dates. However, if it is releasing a new Windows RT product, it will be the only one of the four original third party Windows RT OEMs that decided to continue with a second generation product.
