Dell has officially announced an updated version of its Latitude tablet edition, the Latitude XT2, featuring multi touch gestures support and up to 11 hours of battery life that is if you upgrade to a 6-cell battery plus an additional battery slice combination. The convertible ultraportable has a 12.1-inch 1,280 x 800 capacitive touch screen, which can also be used with an EM stylus, and features a relatively powerful Core 2 Duo ULV processor running at either 1.2 or 1.4 GHz.
The CPU is coupled with integrated Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics, which is somewhat of a letdown but should be enough for most business users, and up to 5GB of DDR3 memory. Storage options include both traditional and flash based solutions (up to a 120GB hard disk or 128GB SSD) while on the connectivity front the XT2 comes loaded with Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and Gigabit Ethernet, as well as eSATA, FireWire, VGA out and two USB ports. Dells updated tablet starts at $2,399 and is available starting today at the companys website.
