Dell Latitude XT Specs

Dell's first move into tablet PCs will be aggressive, according to freshly leaked information. The convertible system will depend on a 12-inch touchscreen similar to Lenovo's ThinkPad X61 and other ultraportables but will have two distinct display options: an LED-backlit display should be thinner and provide more even, color-rich output, while an outdoor option will cut much of the glare that impacts visibility on brighter days. Dell also promises support for both finger input and a stylus, features not always seen with rival machines.

Precise configuration levels are unavailable, but Dell intends to at least match its competitors with the choice of single- or dual-core ultra-low voltage Intel Core CPUs, an ExpressCard slot with a SmartCard option for offices, and wireless options ranging from Bluetooth to 802.11n Wi-Fi and 3G broadband cards for EVDO Revision A (Sprint or Verizon) and HSDPA (AT&T). A single photo also suggests Dell will continue its practice of falling back to Windows XP for customers who choose to avoid Vista. The Texas PC builder allegedly intends to release the system before the end of the summer with prices to be confirmed later. [via Engadget]
