Dell was all about business today with the largest launch of business notebooks and devices in company history. Dell announced numerous Dell Latitude E series business class notebooks, but also showed off a new Latitude convertible tablet, the Dell Latitude XT3.
The Dell Latitude XT3 is a 13″ convertible tablet which is a break from the previous XT2 and pretty much all other convertible tablets which use a 12″ screen. The larger screen means that the XT3 is a bit heavier and bulkier than most tablets you’ll find in teh enterprse space, but Dell feels that it is responding to the needs of corporate users who want a larger tablet and larger display.
The Latitude XT3 is also easier for IT departments to integrate into the corporate landscape now that it has a standard Latitude dock and uses many of the same components as the Latitude E6000 notebooks.
The Dell Latitude XT3 uses an N-trig Digitizer which has been a source of frustration for Dell tablet users for some time, so it will be interesting to see how the XT3 performs when it is finally released.
