Dell Launches $499 Windows 8 Tablet

U.S. PC manufacturer Dell has launched a $499 Windows 8 tablet in the form of the Latitude 10.

Dell claims the device is the "first full-featured, enterprise-ready Windows 8 tablet experience at a price below $500." It runs on a 32-bit Windows 8 version and is powered by a dual-core Intel Atom 1.8GHz Z2760 processor.

Its 10.1-inch IPS (1,366x768) LCD boasts Corning Gorilla Glass technology, as well as capacitive 10 Finger Touch support. 2 GB of SDRAM and 32 GB of solid-state storage are also included.

Dell pointed out that the Latitude 10 "does not require new mobile device management or software licensing, supports new and legacy Windows applications, is compatible with Adobe Flash and connects with existing peripherals."

During CES 2013, Dell unveiled an upgraded model for its XPS 13 ultrabook, which will launch later this month.

    Direct competitor to Surface RT? Atom based tablet has battery life rivaling Surface RT and slightly better performance. Combined that with able to run all applications, one cannot help but think that maybe the whole RT fork is nothing but a distraction in the long run.

    You guys are funny... the dual-core Atom performs better than the Quad-Core A9 found on the Tegra that powers Surface RT, plus it runs legacy programs and costs the same. Quad-Core A9 = AWESOME, Dual-Core x86 Atom = Bad? LOL Ok, it's Dell, but c'mon, for the hardware it has it's a good price...
