by Reads (8,296)

Rumors have been flying all over the place about Dell’s upcoming Tablet PC. Unfortunately that is all we have to go on, rumors. Everyone is anxiously awaiting the release of the Latitude XT, to see what it really will feature. First it had an October release date, then November, now December.

Now it seems we are getting close because the Latitude XT has made its first public appearance. Engadget is reporting that during Michael Dell’s keynote address at Oracle OpenWorld, the company unleashed their new Latitude XT tablet. From the looks of it, it seems Dell is going all out. Maybe that is why it has taken so long for them to have a tablet.

Engadget is reporting that the new Latitude isn’t just some plain-jane scratchpad. Besides being the thinnest in its 12.1-inch, convertible category, and having a screen which is 25-percent brighter than the competition… it’s multi-touch. At the keynote, the Dell folks demonstrated a multiple-finger paint program, which lets you draw five simultaneous lines, and also showcased a Surface-like photo viewer which allows you to scramble, resize, and generally get physical with your fond memories.

Check out the photos below of the Latitude XT in action:
