Leaked documents had already suggested that Dell was getting ready to release a 10 inch tablet with an Intel Atom processor and Windows 8 operating system later this year. Now the folks at Neowin have obtained some more information suggesting that the Dell Latitude 10 will arrive sometime between November and January.
But apparently it won’t be the company’s only new tablet this year.
Dell is reportedly also working on a Windows RT tablet which could launch as early as October — right around the time Microsoft is expected to release Windows RT and Windows 8.
Windows RT is basically Windows 8 for devices with ARM-based processors. Tablets with Windows RT should get long battery life and some of the features we’ve come to expect from Android and iOS devices such as always-on, and always-connected capabilities. But they won’t be able to run software designed for earlier versions of Windows unless those apps are ported to Windows RT.
There’s not much information about Windows RT yet, but the Dell Latitude 10 features a 10.1 inch, 1366 x 768 pixel display, an Intel Atom Clover Trail processor, 2GB of DDR2 memory, and up to 128GB of solid state storage.
It will reportedly measures 10.8″ x 7.” x 0.4″ and weigh about 1.6 pounds and come with 30Whr or 60Whr battery options — and the batteries will be removable. There’s no word on how much the tablet will cost.
