If you want to get people's attention (and your product doesn't have an Apple logo stamped on it), one of the best ways to do that is to release a convertible tablet laptop. Although, while these devices offer something different from your run-of-the-mill laptop, and everyone loves reading about them, we've never met anyone who actually uses one on a regular basis.
Still, we were intrigued when Dell made a tablet play late last year with its Engadget has some leaked specifications and photographs of the Latitude XT2, which probably won't be out until November., and it seems as if this business-oriented system was popular enough to warrant a sequel.
By then you'll be able to get Intel's not-yet-released Centrino 2 platform (formerly code-named Montevina), along with a welcome eSATA port. The leaked documents also say that the addition of an internal optical dive is "under investigation."
