Dell Tablet Leaked And Brings In Some Negative Criticism For 'Weak Specs'

Neowin, they now have their hands on a leaked Latitude 10 tablet’s parts and pieces. This is an entry model, probably $300-400, while I’m not super-impressed by the specs, considering this sounds like an entry-level model, they aren’t too bad. It features a 32-nanometer dual-core Clover Trail, 2GB DRR2-800 memory, a 10.1-inch 1366×768 display and possibly a stylus, and 128GB SSD storage. Probably one of the cooler and more useful features are swappable batteries. Dell hasn’t had the smoothest sailing in tablet territory so far, so it remains to see how good this model will do- but it sounds like a good start. That being said, if this model ends up past $400, then I’d say its specs look a little weak. This is just one example of many tablets we’ve seen that are going to support Windows 8, and for the most part it seems that the Vista problem is gone. That being said, I’m curious about regulation of Windows 8 x86 tablets. I know that ARM is going to be a bit more controlled, but on the x86 is there anything to stop some dubious-quality brand from creating a bunch of lower end Windows 8 tablets that don’t run so well? Of course it would probably take more than a few bad apples to ruin the bunch, with Vista I’d say at least 30% of the PCs on the market at the time had Vista issues, probably more. Not everyone is as confident about hardware specs in the early Windows 8 x86 tablets we’ve seen. It seems that PC World  is already comparing x86 tablets, the Dell leak in particular, to their laptop counterparts, asking questions like why would anyone want to pay $100-$300 more for a tablet that has the same specs as an entry-laptop? This is one of the reasons I think that ARM entry-devices will do better than x86.. they won’t get compared to laptops as much, instead getting compared to iPad and Android- where I think Windows 8 competes quite nicely. What do you think? Is there any chance that Windows 8 will have a future similar to Windows Vista, or is success in the cards? There was a time I was leaning towards believing that Windows 8’s future was dim, but more and more, I find reasons to be impressed with Windows 8. What do you think of the Dell tablet that was leaked, good enough specs for you to consider it? Share your thoughts below.]]>
