Earlier this week, Dell revealed its Latitude ST tablet in a promotional video, touting all of the device’s possibilities. Yet, specifications of the tablet were not known… until now.
The Windows 7-based Latitude ST will sport a 10.1-inch (1280 x 800) LED with Gorilla Glass display and will pack an Intel Atom single core 1.5GHz processor. Embedded with 2GB of RAM, the Dell tablet will also come loaded with 128GB SSD and a 4-cell Lithium ion battery. Weighing 1.8 pounds, the Latitude will measure 10.53 x 7.32 x .59-inches (w x h x d). The Latitude ST will support Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity. As we previously reported, the tablet will feature a USB 2.0 port and HDMI out, in addition to a SD memory card reader and headphone/microphone jack. The capacitive multitouch screen will also offer pen and touch input, with the tablet set to feature an N-trig stylus pen. The Latitude ST will sport a digital pen garage, as well as a docking connector.
In the Latitude video, Dell aims the tablet at the business, medical and education fields, boasting high security and protection via its Data Protection software. In addition the slate will also offer TPM 12 and security lock slot. The Latitude ST will also have dual cameras, a front-facing 720 HD video webcam and a rear 5-megapixel shooter.
Users interested in a more PC-like tablet can include the optional external USB DVD optical drive. Those purchasing a tablet with mobile broadband can also get a SIM card slot included on their device. A docking station, which we got a quick view of in Dell’s video, will provide 3 USB 2.0 ports, Ethernet input, HDMI and audio out, though the price for this accessory is currently unknown.
While pricing details for the Latitude ST are also not known, Dell hinted on its product page that we could be seeing this slate as soon as Nov. 1.
