Dell offers dedicated Latitude 10 Windows 8 tablet for SMBs

Dell has made available a version of its Latitude 10 professional tablet device aimed specifically at SMEs, dubbed the Essentials Configuration, which is priced to make the system more affordable.

The Latitude 10 Essentials Configuration is available in the 64GB configuration today at £430, while the 32GB version will be available in the coming months at £391, Dell said.

This is lower than the standard price for the device which is set at £531 on Dell's website.

The Latitude 10 Essentials Configuration offers modest specifications to keep the price down, a Dell spokesperson told V3.

Comparing web pages for the different version seems to show the device announced today lacks a swappable battery and support for an optional wacom stylus input.

The device, first unveiled last September in the run-up to Microsoft's Windows 8 launch, is a 10.1in slate-mode device based on Intel's Clover Trail Atom platform and weighing in at just 725g.

Configured with a 32GB or 64GB SSD and Gorilla Glass display, the Latitude 10 offers a "secure, manageable and durable enterprise-ready tablet option", according to Dell, and the firm believes it can make the device appeal to SMBs through this new package.

"Dell's heritage is rooted in meeting the needs of our customers with cost effective, tailored solutions that empower them to reach their potential be it in the office, classroom or hospital," said Neil Hand, Dell vice president for end user computing products.

Because it runs Windows 8, the device offers customers a touch-centric device but does not require newer management tools or software licensing than existing PCs, and supports both new and legacy Windows applications.
