Dell XPS 10 Windows RT Hybrid Tablet down to £499

For a limited time, Dell has cut the price of its only Windows RT device, the XPS 10, to £499, that’s a nine per cent discount. The tablet-cum-ultraportable device was unveiled at IFA 2012 in Berlin a few months ago and caught our eye because it looked a lot like a Windows RT version of the Asus Eee Pad Transformer.

Featurewise, it shares a lot of features with the Surface RT. There’s a dual-core system-on-chip, a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 clocked at 1.5GHz with 2GB of RAM and 32GB onboard storage, Microsoft Office Home and Student 2013 RT, a 10.1in 1,366x768 pixels touchscreen display, a 2-cell 28Whr battery, a microSD card slot, a 2-megapixel front facing camera, a rear 5-megapixel one, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, microUSB, microHDMI and a docking station that transforms in into a fully-fledged laptop.

It’s worth noting as well that this keyboard dock comes with a proper touchpad and the combined weight of the device is only 1.3Kg.

The XPS10 is the only Windows RT device that we know of that comes with a dual-core SoC rather than a quad-core one like the Microsoft Surface RT or the Lenovo Yoga 11. Note that there is also an LTE version of the tablet on sale in the US.

Desire worked at ITProPortal right at the beginning and was instrumental in turning it into the leading publication we all know and love today. He then moved on to be the Editor of TechRadarPro - a position he still holds - and has recently been reunited with ITProPortal since Future Publishing's acquisition of Net Communities.
