Earlier this year, Dell announced that its focus for its new devices is the business users. Dell, which had been known as a maker of consumer PCs, seems to be delivering on that promise with its new devices such as the Latitude 10 tablet, a tablet that is said to be designed with the enterprise user in mind.
The Latitude 10 tablet was the subject of a leaked image back in May, which reportedly lists the slate’s specifications which, several months later, were found to be correct.
The Latitude 10 tablet runs on the Intel Clover Trail System-on-a-Chip and has Windows 8 as its operating system. It comes with 128GB of internal storage capacity as well as 2GB of RAM. On the tablet’s rear, users will find its main camera, which has an 8-megapixel sensor, whereas on its front is a 720p webcam. Several connectivity options are possible including Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, as well as mobile broadband. At this point, it is still unknown whether the tablet will support LTE connectivity. Connecting peripherals like a printer, a mouse, or other plug-and-play devices, is made easy with the presence of a full-sized USB port. Likewise, the tablet sports a mini-USB port for charging. Those who find a Wacom stylus handy in their line of work will find that the tablet supports this accessory. It is also worth noting that the device comes with a user-replaceable battery that is reportedly easy to detach from the tablet.
To make the device more suited to withstand business travels, Dell encased the device in a magnesium alloy casing as well as protected its display with Corning Gorilla Glass. Furthermore, to address business security concerns, the device supports TPM management and has data protection and encryption features from Dell. Users can also choose to have a smartcard and a fingerprint reader on the tablet for added security.
Dell’s other new devices include the Dell Latitude 6430u Ultrabook and the Dell OptiPlex 9010 All-In-One desktop.
