Dell had, a few months back, hinted about their Windows 7 Tablet, which was scheduled for a Q3 release, as well as a Windows 8 tablet for the next year.
Now, we hear, the company has narrowed their fall release of the Windows 7 slate to October. Moreover, the Tablet’s acquired a codename Peju (or Latitude ST), and is said to be an aggressive rival to Asus’s Eee Slate.
Specifications wise (according to some leaked documents found), the Peju is said to be packing an Intel Core i5 processor. Dell said the slate wouldn’t be committed to only Windows 7 and that it would be Windows 8 compatible.
The tablet is rumored to get about six to eight hours of real battery life from its 5,500mAh battery, as opposed to the two hour battery life of the 12-inch ASUS tablet.
The 10 inch slate is said to have good resolution of 1920×1080, and will come packing a 1.3 Megapixel front facing camera and a 5 Megapixel rear camera.
The tablet has 4GB memory with either a 64GB or 120GB solid-state drive and supports a pair of USB ports, both HDMI and mini VGA for displays, a microSD slot, and a 3G or 4G modem.
The Peju also offers a multi-input system, where you can use either touch, a stylus or a keyboard. Both a Bluetooth as well as a USB Keyboard can be docked in (but you won’t get a board with slate).
When compared to an Android or iPad, it does seem stocky at 1.9 pounds and 0.63 inches. The price is yet to be divulged, but we think it to be bordering somewhere around the $1000 mark.
Expensive but not so if Dell is aiming for the high-end professionals.
