    As revealed by a leaked slide, Dell's Windows 8 plans include the launch of a 10-inch tablet running Microsoft's upcoming operating system. Interestingly-enough, although Windows 8 will be ARM-friendly the tablet Dell has in the works, named Latitude 10, is going to be powered by an x86 processor, more specifically, a dual-core Intel Atom (Clover Trail).

    The Latitude 10 will feature a 10.1-inch (1366 x 768) capacitive touchscreen, integrated graphics, 2 GB of LPDDR2 memory, up to a 128 GB SSD, an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2MP front camera, stereo speakers, WiFi, Bluetooth and optional broadband, and a removable 2-cell or 4-cell battery enabling up to 8/12 hours of operation.

    The tablet is rumored to become available around October/November.

    This is not a tablet. It's a Tablet PC. And like all other tablet PCs, it will fail.

    128 GB SSD? 2 GB of RAM?

    Microsoft will never get the idea!

    This is the real tablet PC, and unlike other tablets with bastardized hardware and OS , this is going to be a hit.:toast:

    There are actually some successful tablet PC systems out there but these are targeted to a specific demographic. The more powerful the hardware the more you pay. For example, I have an Asus Eee Slate EP121 which has an Intel Core i5 470UM (1.33GHz - Turbo Boost up to 1.86GHz) CPU, 64GB mSATA SSD (upgradeable) and 12.1" LED widescreen display among other features. It’s a great product but not intended for general consumption because few people are going to lineup to spend over ~$1100 for such a device.

    Newer devises like the Samsung Series 7 tablet PC (Intel Sandy Bridge) command an equally lofty price and one would expect future Core i5 / Core i7 “Ivy Bridge” tablet PC systems to improve performance, increase energy efficiency and command a lofty price as well.

    On the other hand, I’ve been hearing rumors of a quasi ~$200 Windows 8 ARM tablet using nVidia SoC. That could be widely popular with the masses.

    boooo, intel atom.


    this thing wont be a hit, because of the lack of power. when it starts lagging on youtube and flash heavy websites, it'll get a bad rep.

    My initial thoughts are the same, but the Clover Trail is a new Atom processor (at least I haven't found much info on it) and should be around the 2.0 ghz range. Only 32nm though, have to wait for 2013 for the 22nm Atom.

    Im sure there will be RDP applications built in. Im excited for this, most notably the removable battery in my opinion. With 8.5 hours of operation time (high end guesstimate, Im sure), I wouldnt mind carrying around an extra battery. 128G of SSD storage on a tablet is nothing to scoff at either.

    Yeah, a ~120GB mSATA SSD (the most likely upgradeable form factor of SSD for a tablet) isn’t cheap. Such an mSATA SSD used to start at about ~$230.

    What do you mean they fail? I guess people want super slow tablets....
    :rolleyes:

    It is a tablet with really good hardware(except for the Intel ATOM), expensive, but very good with a Windows OS so you can actually get work done in a reasonable amount of time.

    I would get a windows Tablet/Slate just because it has a SSD in it.

    this new Clover Trail atom cpu is what im most interested in. its supposed to a whole new architecture using out of order execution. clock for clock this will stomp all over brazos.

    also note that current atom cpus already have a lower powerdraw than brazos. atom cpus have MAX TDP of around 10w. Brazos is AVERAGE TDP of 18w.

    Yea but that includes the GPU as well not just the CPU, and we all know intels GPU vs AMD's is no where near as powerful.

    I bet Dell is banking a lot on that tablet succeeding. I don't know how desperate Dell is but it could really make/break their 2013 FY.

    If they can sell it at around $600-800, it'll kill the iPad because it can run almost anything from a Windows desktop/laptop computer (highest software availabilty platform in the world).

    Intel would be best of dropping the Atom line. Even if it's just an upgraded next gen "atom" theyd be much better off calling it something else due to the stigma the slow ass atoms have.

    Not surprising. Windows might support ARM, but the adoption will be slow until there is a decent amount of software that supports ARM for Windows.

    what are you talking about? amd has 10w brazos they just run lower frequency, 1.3ghz or so
    and remember they have a gpu on the chip as well
    the 18watt parts are the higher end brazos that run at 1.6ghz and brazos 2.0 will run at 1.7ghz and have twice the radeon cores at the same power/thermal envelope
    as for clover trail being a new architecture where did u hear that? as far as i know its only a die shrink? because if atom can run at 2.0ghz then it would probably match the 1.7ghz brazos (assuming its only a die shrink but i may be wrong, if you have a link however it may be useful)

    well as far as i know in the low power segment amd is better in cpu and gpu
    brazos have higher ipc than intels atoms, though i hate how they seem to be slacking off and remain with the same 40nm brazos with minor tweaks in frequency and buffer gpu(but its still impressive how far they are getting with 40nm) when they shouldve improved the bobcat cores and kept that head start, i just hope they know what they are doing, otherwise fail amd -__-

    You can, it's Windows thus runs all Windows software. Windows itself on a tablet is annoying though, everything is too small, you can change some things but it's never great.

    You can do the same with a cheap Android tablet, go for that instead if remote control is all you want.

    Die jongedame die de plees schoonmaakt bij de Rodahal mag er wel zijn trouwens.
