Dell introduces Latitude XT Tablet PC
Dell is introducing the long awaited Latitude XT, the thinnest and one of the lightest 12.1-inch convertible tablets available. It is also the brightest in its category with an optional daylight viewing panel.

The system starts at US$2,499 and Dell will begin to take orders and ship the Latitude XT by the end of the year.

The Latitude XT is also the industry’s only sub-four-pound convertible tablet with pen and capacitive touch capability. Capacitive technology senses the touch of a finger with no pressure required for the system to recognize input. It is also the forerunner to emerging multi-touch capabilities that allow the use of more than one finger for tasks such as zoom and repositioning a picture, to name a few.

Other tablets on the market today rely on resistive touch that requires the application of force for the system to recognize user interaction. The older technology can be less accurate and durable than capacitive touch and may not support multi-touch. In addition, many customers who use resistive tablets that support both pen and touch functionality may disable the latter because the palm rejection technology is subpar.

The Latitude XT is designed with the future in mind with the capability to support multi-touch. As the technology matures, the system can serve as a premiere development platform for applications that can take advantage of multi-touch.

Other features of the Latitude XT include an optional media base for docking and optical media, full-size keyboard with dual pointing, up to 64 GB solid state drive; up to 120 GB hard drive and optional battery slice designed to provide up to 9.5 hours of battery life.

The system is based on Intel Core 2 Solo and Duo ULV processors and ATI Radeon X1250 UMA integrated graphics.
