Dell has announced the Latitude XT2 convertible tablet, an update on the industry’s first tablet PC with multi-touch screen capabilities. This new version was designed to enhance security, increase performance and extend battery life.
The system starts at US$2,399 and is available on-line from today.
Multi-touch capabilities on the Latitude XT2 allow users to use natural gestures like a pinch or tap for scrolling, panning, rotating and zooming that work with productivity applications they use every day. Dell’s integration of multi-touch screen technology allows customers to use the full real estate of the display, as opposed to just the touchpad.
“As part of our commitment to deliver the best mobility experience, Dell revolutionized the tablet space with the first multi-touch capable product that allows customers to use the entire screen,” said Brett McAnally, director, Dell Product Group. “Today, we’re extending that leadership with the Latitude XT2 to deliver more performance, security and manageability.”
This new version also provides up to 11 hours, 28 minutes of battery life with six cell battery and optional 6-cell battery slice.
