Dell Latitude 10 is a Windows 8 tablet

Details of Dell's first Windows 8 tablet have leaked and it looks pretty awesome from these specs.

What you can see up above are details for Dell's first Windows 8 tablet, the Dell Latitude 10.

And as you can see, it's a full spec sheet that's leaked, Neowin reports, meaning there's not much we don't know about the tablet.

The screen is a 10.1-inch 1,366x768-pixel multi-touch effort with an optional stylus. There's a dual-core Atom processor, Intel graphics chip, 2GB RAM and a 128GB solid state drive. It looks a lot like a Dell Latitude ST, though the final design could change before release. And this is a pretty small pic so expect more detail closer to launch.

Interestingly, there's also a removable battery that'll come in two varieties -- a two-cell with 30WHr giving you 6 to 8 hours, or a four-cell with 60WHr providing 10 to 12 hours. The two will be swappable, so presumably you can lighten your device by taking a smaller battery with you if you're not venturing too far, then break out the big boy for further-flung adventures. It's a cool idea and I can see it catching on.

About the only thing that hasn't leaked is the price and release date, though it's expected to go on sale around November.

HP is also working on a Windows 8 tablet , which is surprising considering its TouchPad didn't fare too well, being yanked from sale shortly after launch. Microsoft chief Steve Ballmer has an 80-inch Windows 8 tablet in his office, apparently, that he uses instead of a phone. And even more bonkers, Microsoft plans to sell it. Seriously. It'll probably be for offices rather than average punters, but still, we can dream.

What do you think of Dell's Windows 8 effort? Will you go for Windows 8 over an iPad or Android tab? Let me know in the comments or on Facebook.
