This week, we see Dell bringing us the Dell Latitude 10 in a new avatar. Striped down to its essentials,
but still maintaining excellent functionality and performance, the Dell Latitude 10 Essentials is meant
to be an affordable tablet that can be used in classrooms and businesses,where multiple users and reliable
performance are key criteria for anytablet device. Since classrooms and businesses means multiple people,the Latitude 10 Essentials can be used by more than one person,keeping it cost friendly.
The essential features of the tablet are retained and it has all the important features that one
could ask for in a Windows 8 tablet. Dell’s education Cloud Services are perfectly compatible with
this tablet, making sure that tools for lecture capture, curriculum management and e-books are fully
available to students.
A classroom or business environment requires a tablet to be durable and scratch resistant,
since accidents can happen anywhere. The durable magnesium alloy body keeps it lightweight
as well as tough and the Gorilla glass protects the screen from inadvertent damage. The 10
inch screen is perfectly adequate for reading and the headphone jack,micro HDMI output and
USB 2.0 port ensure that the tablet’s connectivity is secure and fuss free.
For those looking to make the tablet a stand alone device, there is a desktop dock that
takes care of charging, LAN connectivity, an SD card slot as well as full sized USB slots.
Of course, this dock is separate from the tablet, so it can be bought as needed.
Priced at $579 for the 64GB version with a new, cheaper 32GB version due to appear
soon, the Latitude 10 Essentials Tablet is one of the cheaper Windows 8 tablets in the
market and students and small businesses should find it answers all their needs.
