Dell has reportedly dropped the price of its current Windows RT tablet, the XPS 10 (opens in new tab). Previously the entry-level tablet cost $449.99, but now the price has been slashed down to $299.99 USD. The drop is reportedly due to underwhelming sales of Windows RT tablets, but could be merely a way to flush out the current stock in order to make room for the newer Windows RT (8.1) models.
Dell's discounted tablet features a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 SoC clocked at 1.5 GHz, 32 GB or 64 GB of internal storage, a 10.1-inch HD Display (1366x768) with capacitive multi-touch, a 2MP camera on the front, a 5MP camera on the back, and a 28Wh 2-Cell Lithium Ion battery promising up to 10 1/2 hours of battery life. Because the hardware is ARM-based, the tablet uses Windows RT, which is not compatible with Windows-based desktop software sold on AMD and Intel-based computers.
