Check out our full review of the Dell Latitude 10 tablet. 

Dell has taken the wraps off three new products that will make up its Windows 8 offerings for enterprise clients. The most surprising of these is the Dell Latitude 10 tablet, a 10-inch device running a full version of Windows 8.

The use of full Windows 8 (instead of Windows 8 RT) will make it 100-percent compatible with typical Windows productivity software. An optional dock is available, but it is not an attachable keyboard like those sold for consumer tablets thus far. Instead, it is meant for desktop use and will be aimed to make the tablet easy to use with existing desktop keyboards, monitors and mice. Dell is also making the battery user serviceable, a trait that makes it possible for users to carry multiple batteries for long tours away from a power outlet.

Next up is the Latitude 6430u, Dell’s newest addition to its line of business laptops. The “u” stands for Ultrabook – this 14-incher comes in at 20mm thin and weighs just 3.7 pounds. It was designed to meet MIL-STD-810G standards for operation in harsh environments and will ship with an anti-glare screen. It will presumably offer Intel Core processors and is likely to have a standard display resolution of 1366 x 768.

Last of the group is the OptiPlex 9010. This is a typical 23-inch all-in-one computer with touchscreen support for use with Windows 8’s Modern UI. Dell will also offer an articulating stand and rotatable camera, traits that make it suitable for use in a variety of enterprise tasks.

Exact technical details are sparse for all of these products but we know they’ll all be released alongside Windows 8, which is scheduled to launch on October 25. We’ve also been informed that all of these products will ship with Dell Data Protection.
