Dell Latitude ST Tablet Emerges

Dell has posted a promotional video for its Lattitude ST tablet online, which shows the Windows 7 slate is being aimed at the enterprise,

education and medical sectors.

Back in July we saw details of Dell’s 10.1in Peju tablet

leaked and going by those specifications and the tablet on show in the video,

it’s hard to argue that they are not one-and-the-same device.

The Dell Latitude ST will run Windows 7 and will be powered by

Intel’s Atom processors. There will also be an optional docking station

available which will allow you to quickly transfer content from the tablet to

your PC and vice-versa.

The Latitude ST

will have a full-sized SD card reader and a full-sized USB port (something of a novelty on tablets these days) meaning it will be able to connect to

projectors, printers and other devices.

The tablet will also come with a stylus which will be housed

in the device, as well as front and rear cameras to make video-calling

or video-conferencing possible.

The promotional video, posted on Dell’s Malaysian site,

clearly shows that Dell is not going to position this tablet to go head-to-head

with the likes of the iPad, Galaxy Tab 10.1 or the Eee Pad Transformer.

According to the video, the Latitude ST was

“designed specifically for mobile professionals with IT in mind.”

If the tablet does indeed turn out to be the Peju we saw earlier in

the summer, then the 10.1in screen will have a resolution of 1920 x 1080, it will

come with 4GB of RAM and either a 64GB or 128GB SSD. It will measure

275 x 170 x 16mm and will weigh 860g – which is quite a lot bulkier than most

high-end tablets.

Dell has not announced any details regarding availability or

pricing so far, but going on the specs and previous Windows 7 devices, we

don’t expect the Latitude ST

to be cheap.
