Specs for Dell's Windows 8 Clover Trail Tablet Leaked

Microsoft's Windows 8 is scheduled for launch later this year and around the same time, we can expect manufacturers to start churning out Windows 8 tablets. Many manufacturers are happy to confirm or announce that they're working on Windows 8 tablets, but we don't know a whole lot about those devices. Today, a new report points to apparent specs for an 10.8-inch tablet device from Dell.

 

Neowin posted the slide above, which was sent in by 'an awesome tipster.' If the information on the slide is genuine then we can expect a 10.8-inch tablet tablet with a 10.1-inch 1366x768 display, Intel's dual-core Clover Trail Atom CPU, 2 GB of LP DDR2 RAM, a 128 GB SSD, Windows 8, an 8-megapixel camera round the back and a 2-megapixel job up front, Bluetooth, WLAN, and a finger-print reader to keep the whole thing nice and secure. Interestingly enough, Neowin has also heard mention of a removable battery as well as two different choices when it comes to batteries. There's a larger battery that Neowin says should get 10-12 hours of battery life. The smaller battery will apparently get 6-8 hours.

No information on pricing or release just yet, so we have no idea if this tablet is coming at the tail-end of 2012 (last we heard the first Clover Trail Windows 8 tablets would be arriving in November), or early 2013. We'll keep you posted.

    seems pretty good, but I hope it is not running the desktop version of windows 8, it barely runs properly with 4GB RAM

    also if it is an x86 system then it really isn't anything new. Remember the old tablet/laptops that ran windows XP or vista?

    it seems that they took that concept and just used the insides of a netbook

    My reasoning for this is the specs and the power consumption, it seems very close to that of a netbook

    only difference is that tablet will probably cost a lot more than $300

    I would never pay the "iPad price" for a tablet when you can get a soup'd-up laptop for the same price. I expect more out of a device priced that high then to browse the Internet and check Email.
