Presented for the first time in February of this year, Dell's Latitude XT3 convertible tablet seems to be getting closer to release, as the device has recently visited the FCC as it needed certification for a certain Broadcom 802.11g WLAN card that will be shipped together with it.
Information about the Latitude XT3 is pretty scarce at this point in time, but from we have managed to dig out, the convertible tablet will be powered by an Intel Core i5-2520 processor that will be seconded by 2GB of system memory.
The Core i5-2520 is one of Intel's normal voltage mobile Sandy Bridge
processors and its dual computing cores with Hyper-Threading support are clocked at 2.5GHz, while Turbo Boost can raise this frequency up to 3.2GHz.
In addition to the 3MB of shared L3 cache, the CPU also includes an Intel HD 3000 graphics unit that is used to drive the 13-inch screen of the Latitude XT3.
The display's resolution is set at the rather standard 1366x768, but its most important feature is the support for touch input. In fact, the screen can detect up to three simultaneous contact points and can also be used together with a stylus.
Another interesting addition that Dell
has brought to the Latitude XT3 is the introduction of a backlit keyboard, which should come as a great aid to users who have to use Dell's creation in the dark.
Sadly, it is hard to say at this point in time when the Latitude X3 hits retail, as Dell was tight lipped about the availability of this convertible tablet
, but, most probably, this will arrive by the end of summer.
Pricing is also an unknown. However, more information should be released in the coming weeks. (via Wireless Goodness
