Dell unveils Windows 8-based XPS 10 and XPS Duo 12
Dell has announced the release of Windows 8-powered XPS 10 and XPS Duo 12 devices at the IFA 2012 trade show in Berlin, Germany. The XPS 10 is a Windows RT hybrid machine that is powered by Microsoft’s latest operating system on a 10-inch touch-enabled display. Whereas XPS Duo 12 is a device with a screen-surrounding aluminum trim that remains stationary while the 12.5-inch touch display rotates 180 degrees, enabling the machine to be closed and used like a slate.
The Dell XPS Duo 12 comes with a backlit keyboard and offers dual functionality of a tablet and ultrabook. It will be powered by an Intel Core series CPU, and probably run Windows 8 Pro. On the other hand, the Dell XPS 10 tablet is powered by an unspecified ARM architecture processor and will run Windows RT mobile operating system. Dell XPS 10 is expected to be thinner and lighter than the ultrabooks meant for the Windows 8 operating system.
Apart from the other mentioned details, Dell did not share much about the new devices at the unveiling. It is expected that more details will be unveiled after the official launch of Windows 8 operating system on October 26. Till then, just wait and watch.
