Dell Latitude ST slate ready to order

Dell overnight put up a pre-order page for its delayed Latitude ST tablet. The 10-inch Windows 7 slate is now known to cost $859 and, in the first wave of orders, should arrive by November 29. Base trim gives it a 1.5GHz Atom Z670 chip, 2GB of RAM, and a 64GB solid-state drive along with rear five-megapixel and front 720p cameras.

Upgrades are few in hardware on the tablet, whose centerpiece is a 1280x800 N-Trig screen that can handle both finger touch and pen input. Outside of extras, the primary upgrade is a 128GB drive.

The tablet may be the last of its kind from Dell before Windows 8. Following some of the pattern from HP's Slate 500, the Latitude ST was shown early this year with a possible general focus before it was put into the Latitude line and delayed to the fall to limit it to enterprise, keeping it out of contention with the iPad. Dell has been enthusiastic for Windows 8 and sees it replacing Android as its main choice for tablets.
