The upcoming release of Windows 8 to the general public has OEMs getting all touchy feely with their product releases, and that includes Dell
, which just unveiled three new touch-friendly XPS devices. Spreading the love to different form factors, Dell unveiled a new tablet (XPS 10), convertible Ultrabook (XPS Duo 12), and updated all-in-one machine (XPS One 27).
"The XPS 10, XPS Duo 12 and XPS One 27 represent the culmination of a deep understanding of the ‘Bring Your Own Device’ movement and insights gained from both our consumer and business customers," said Sam Burd, global vice president, PC product group at Dell. "The new set of products Dell unveiled today represents a milestone in our design and approach to user experience. Our vision for our XPS line of computers is not just about the device or technology, it’s about achieving the perfect balance of amazing design, end user productivity and IT enablement."
Details are fairly light, as none of these products have officially launched or other otherwise available for purchase, but Dell did provide some quick and dirty details. The XPS 10, for example, is built around an ARM processor and runs Windows RT. Similar to the Surface, it will have a mobile keyboard dock and "long battery life," Dell says.
For users who need something a bit more powerful and flexible, the XPS Duo switch hits as both a tablet and an Ultrabook. It has a flip hinge touchscreen display, Full HD resolution, a machined aluminum and carbon fiber finish, and Corning Gorilla Glass.
Finally, the XPS One 27 is Dell's touchtastic AIO with "nearly twice the pixel density of any other 27-inch AIO," the company claims. It has a Quad HD display, premium speakers, and Waves MaxxAudio 4 audio technology.
All three products will ship at the end of October will Windows 8 is made available.
