Dell Unveils Windows 8 Ultrabook and Latitude 10 Business Class Devices
The Latitude 6430u has a 14-inch display and is significantly lighter and slimmer than its notebook predecessor, according to Dell. And, the device is designed for the U.S. Military’s AMIL-STD-810G harsh conditions test. Dell is also touting all-day use on a single battery charge for the ultrabook. Like the tablet, the Latitude 6430u has Dell’s data protection and encryption software.
As for the tablet, the Latitude 10 boasts a 10-inch display and has a replaceable battery. Being geared towards corporate and education/government/healthcare use, it has features that aren’t necessary on consumer tablets, including a fingerprint reader and a smart card reader. Dell says that the tablet is designed to work with industry-specific software. The tablet also includes Dell’s own data protection and encryption software.
The Dell OptiPlex 9010 AIO has a touch screen, taking advantage of Windows 8’s touch capabilities. Dell hasn’t offered much information about the all-in-one’s specs, but it has said the system will have an articulating stand and a fixed or rotating webcam.
All three devices will be available when Window 8 launches, and all will be running Windows 8.
