Dell leaks Windows 8 Tablet specs

The maker of grey boxes, Dell has leaked some specs on its forthcoming Windows 8 tablet computers.

Dubbed the Latitude 10 and the XPS 12, the leakage was printed by Neowin .

The Latitude 10 is a 10.8-inch tablet with a 1366×768 pixel resolution, a dual-core Intel Clover Trail Atom processor, 2 GB of RAM, and comes with solid state drives of up to 128GB.

It looks like the tablet will feature removable batteries that will be available in two different sizes.

The smaller one will run for six and eight hours, while the larger one will provide 10 to 12 hours worth of battery life on a single charge.

It comes with a fingerprint reader, an 8-megapixel rear camera, a 2-megapixel front-facing camera, and Intel graphics.

The XPS 12, is a 12.5-inch convertible tablet and will be eight to 20mm thin and 1.4kg. Made from machined aluminum it will have a carbon-fiber chassis and edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass. If they painted the stars and strips on the back it could pass for Captain America’s shield.

Unfortunately you would have to be the Incredible Hulk to lift it. It comes with a physical keyboard usable for when you convert the XPS 12 from a tablet to a laptop.

Dell appears to be one of the first to pack in as many security features it can find in its new tablets. These include TPM security chip and a lock slot, and has an optional fingerprint or smart card reader, Bit Locker support, and Dell Data Protection.

But a the end of the day there is only so much they can stick under the bonnet of a tablet, and it will probably all just come down to price.
