Dell cuts price of XPS 10 Windows RT tablet to £249

Online retailer Dell has cut the price of its Windows RT tablet, the XPS 10 Windows RT, from £349 to £249, a price that includes VAT and delivery but excludes that of the optional keyboard dock that could convert the tablet into an ultra-portable device.

The tablet runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon dual-core S4 SoC clocked at 1.5GHz, with 1GB of RAM, a 10.1in 1,366 x 768 pixel display, up to 10 hours battery life (thanks to a 28Whr 2-cell Lithium-Ion battery), 32GB flash storage, Windows RT and Office Home and Student 2013 RT (which de facto precludes its use in an office environment), two speakers and two digital array microphones, a microSD card slot, a 2-megapixel front facing webcam, a 5-megapixel rear one, Bluetooth 4.0, a microUSB and microHDMI (via adaptor) port and a weight of 635g.

Surprisingly enough, the XPS 10 comes with enterprise features like Firmware TPM, BitLocker encryption technology, SecureBoot, an integratd VPN client functionality, EAS policies and remote wipe. Lenovo has also cut the price of its entry level Ideapad Yoga 11 Windows RT hybrid laptop to £399 while Microsoft has started to bundle its Touch Cover accessory with the £399 Surface RT device for free.
