Dell's Latitude XT2 tablet PC

Presumably designed as the latest update to its existing Latitude XT tablet range, a whole host of specifications for the previously unseen XT2 have been published alongside drawings and photos of the machine itself.

The XT2 sports a 12.1in, 1280 x 800 screen that's able to twist by up to 180° and turn the machine into a pen-operated tablet PC.

An ultra-low voltage Intel Core 2 Duo processor hides under the XT2's shell, with integrated Intel GMA X4500 graphics and the capacity for up to 5GB of DDR 3 memory.

Tilt and swivel

In addition to an ExpressCard 34 and SDHC card slots, the tablet also has Wi-Fi connectivity and an Ethernet port. Two USB 2.0 ports are built in, but Bluetooth and a biometric reader will all be optional extras.

The machine measures 297 x 218 x 25mm and weighs in at 1.6kg when equipped with its four-cell battery.

Unfortunately, the only details that Dell 'forgot' to publish was the XT2’s launch date and price. ®
