Dell Latitude XT3 tablet PC release date expecting soon; product page shows up online, Price still unknown
Dell’s published its Latitude XT3 Tablet PC landing page, which likely means the launch of the computer is imminent. First discovered back in February of this year and with several updates suggesting availability by mid year, Dell’s Latitude XT3 convertible tablet PC is finally looking to be readying up for sale with a listing popping up on Dell’s US and Canadian websites.
There isn’t a lot of new info we haven’t heard before, but let’s take a second look at the highlights: 13.3 inch screen with 1366 x 768 pixels resolution (classic for the screen size) and a choice between a reduced glare model and a daylight viewable one (both with LED back-light and pen/touch input), second generation Core processors, integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000, a modular bay with option for optical drive, secondary battery or secondary hard drive.
The Windows 7-powered notebook tablet hybrid weighs in at 2kg with a 6-cell battery and taps Intel’s Mobile QM67 Express Chipset for Intel integrated HD Graphics 3000. Another interesting feature is the inclusion of something Dell calls “ExpressCharge battery technology” which will apparently allow the device to be recharged to 80 per cent capacity in only an hour.
As the pictures denote, the display can be rotated easily from notebook to tablet via its bi-directional hinge. Packed inside the unit is a 2nd-gen Core i7 processor running on the Mobile Intel QM67 chipset with HD 3000 graphics, DVD drive, HD webcam, Gigabit ethernet, 802.11b/g/n WiFi, optional Bluetooth 3.0, a GPS and mobile broadband, ExpressCard (34mm) slot, card reader and choice of a 6 or 9 cell battery.
Dell is yet to release pricing info on the Latitude XT3. There is, however, no indication on availability outside of the US and Canada.
