Once Windows 8 comes out later this year, PC vendors will no doubt be falling over themselves to offer tablets featuring the new operating system. Thanks to the folks at Neowin, we've now gotten a little preview of what Dell might have up its sleeve. The site has posted a leaked presentation slide with full specifications for the Latitude 10, an upcoming Windows 8 tablet with a 10.1" display.
Assuming the slide is genuine, the Latitude 10 will have a 1366x768 display resolution, a dual-core Atom processor, 2GB of DDR2 memory, up to 128GB of solid-state storage, and a swappable battery with a capacity of either 30 or 60 watt-hours. Neowin says run times will range from as little as six hours with the smaller battery to as much as 12 hours with the larger one. Other amenities will include front and rear cameras and a fingerprint reader.
Physically, the device will purportedly tip the scales at 1.57-1.63 lbs depending on the configuration, and it will be 0.4 inches thick. Apple's new iPad, for reference, weighs 1.44-1.46 lbs and measures 0.37" in thickness. So, it looks like the Dell tablet will be a fatter and heavier, but not considerably so.
The one missing piece of data, of course, is the Latitude 10's price. Neowin says this might only be one of several Windows 8 tablets Dell has in the pipeline, though, so I'm sure there will be options for everyone come this fall.
