Dell Latitude Tablet

Dell is indeed working on a tablet version of its Latitude business notebooks, according to an official video from the company's feedback blog. The still unnamed PC will be a true convertible tablet that can switch from a typical notebook display to a vertical tablet useful for drawing and taking notes. Windows Vista Business is certain to be included for the necessary tablet support unavailable in Vista Home Basic. The shown system is small and is likely to be a revamped edition of the 12-inch D420, which may gain Intel's Santa Rosa architecture as part of the change.

Although it was too early to announce release dates and prices, company spokesman Jeff Clarke confirmed the tablet should be released later this year. Costs will likely rise above those of the company's fixed-function Latitude notebooks.
