Dell Latitude Z at FCC

Dell's designer Latitude Z has garnered support today courtesy of an FCC filing for the ultraportable's government tests. Beyond confirming the notebook's existence, the use of only 802.11g Wi-Fi implies the base model won't have faster 802.11n. A diagram of the design appears to support a removable "hump" that would have an Ethernet connection, likely other ports, and possibly an extended-capacity battery.

Actual specifications aren't a part of the FCC's look at the new Latitude. The system is likely to be the first of a new wave of extremely thin 15-inch notebooks, but whether it has a rumored Core 2 Duo instead of a less expensive but slower CULV processor is still a mystery. The original source of the rumor has been proven partially inaccurate as a launch within a few weeks hasn't come true.

Clues to the release date may come from the FCC itself, as Dell has told the US agency not to publish external photos or the manual until October 25th and may be hinting at a release on or before that date. [via Engadget]
