Looks like Dell's 12.1-inch Latitude XT2 has now been globally launched. The tablet convertible has got a multitouch screen, DDR3 memory and weighs just 1.7kg with a 6-cell 11-hour battery. Starting price: $US2399
Even after Nvidia downplayed their original report that GeForce 8400-8700 cards were failing in large numbers due to overheating, Dell has issued a BIOS update for all of its machines running the affected GPUs anyway. The update tweaks the fan settings to "regulate temperature fluctuations" to keep the maybe-faulty-maybe-not chips cooler. So who do we believe here?
Dell's Latitude XT tablets will receive their long-awaited multi-touch firmware update Tuesday, adding multi-touch to web browsers, MS Office, Google Earth, photo viewers, and more to zoom, scroll and pinch just like you-know-who. There's also a boss-is-coming shortcut—double-tap the screen and it goes dark instantly, hiding your unsavory dealings. Looks a little jerky in Hans and Roy's demo video, though.
Preliminary specs and a product render for the Dell Latitude XT2 have been released, and appears the convertable tablet will include the Centrino 2 Montevina platform, an integrated optical drive and an eSATA port. The rest appears to be unchanged for the time being. Nothing shocking or revelatory, but the Latitude XT was a nice piece of tech, and I'm equally interested in the XT2.
