Dell Latitude XT 2 Leak

The Latitude XT's first major revision should see a faster device and potentially the inclusion of an optical drive, says information reportedly leaked to Engadget. The convertible tablet will reportedly switch completely to Intel's Centrino 2 platform and use its newer, faster low and ultra-low voltage Core 2 Duo processors along with the faster GMA X4500 integrated video that comes with the new chipset. Refinements to technology should also allow Dell to fit an extremely thin DVD drive into the system rather than rely on a dock.

The system is also set to drop one of its three USB ports in exchange for an external SATA port that would accommodate high-speed hard drives. The 12-inch touchscreen PC is otherwise to be unchanged. While pricing isn't set, the new Latitude XT is tentatively scheduled to launch in November, roughly two months after Intel releases its low-power processors for Centrino 2.
