Dell on Tablet PCs: "We're coming!"

Dell has been sitting on the sidelines as companies like Hewlett-Packard, Fujitsu, Gateway and Lenovo have embraced the Tablet PC form-factor. Dell will no longer sit on the bench and instead will get into the game the latter half of 2007.

The company posted a short minute-long video on its Direct2Dell blog site which discusses its new Latitude XT Tablet PC. The Latitude XT will be marketed at the education, medical and corporate sectors according to Dell's Jeff Clark.

Clark notes that the device will be one of the lightest Tablets in its class and will feature advances in the touch-screen interface to make it more practical to use. The prototype that Clark showed off in the video features a 12.1" widescreen display running Windows Vista. All of the usual connectivity options are there including Bluetooth and WiFi along with a fingerprint scanner.

Thankfully, the Latitude will be based on Intel's Santa Rosa-based Centrino Pro platform. That means that the tablet will feature support for 802.11n and Intel Turbo Memory along with improved X3100 integrated graphics.

Huh?

Last I checked, Gateway wasn't owned by HP. HP owns Compaq and VoodooPC, but not Gateway.
