Latitude XT2 multi-touch tablet PC

DELL recently announced the launch of its Latitude XT2 convertible tablet, building on the industry's first tablet PC with multi-touch screen capabilities designed to enhance security and increase performance.

The system starts at RM7,500 and is available now at or through Dell's PartnerDirect programme.

Multi-touch capabilities on the Latitude XT2 allows the use of natural gestures like a pinch or tap for scrolling, panning, rotating and zooming that work with productivity applications used 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 revolutionised the tablet space with the first multi-touch product that allows customers to use the entire screen," said Dell Product Group director Brett McAnally.

"Today, we're extending that leadership with the Latitude XT2 to deliver more battery life, performance, security and manageability."

Other features include:

» more than 11 hours of battery life with six-cell battery and optional nine-cell battery slice;

» Daylight Viewable display that has up to 100% more luminance than the HP EliteBook 2730p;

» full-size keyboard, touchpad, point stick and battery-free pen give users input flexibility;

» combines performance with high-touch accuracy to allow touch interface with small icons without drops or hangs;

» comprehensive services options with Dell ProSupport;

» improved connectivity with new LCD-based wireless antenna design;

» enhanced hinge design for improved panel stability;

» Sata drive support providing updated storage technology and enhanced performance;

» comprehensive security features that include Dell ControlVault and ControlPoint Security Manager;

» DDR3 RAM allows better performance and up to 5GB RAM;

» manageability with integration of Intel vPro and DASH 1.0 compliance; and
