The Dell Latitude 10, available from distributor Drive Control Corporation (DCC), ushers in a new breed of tablets, combining the convenience of the small and thin form factor with the power of a PC into a device that is ideal for the serious business user. Featuring easy management and security to help integrate onto the corporate network, and a durable, stylish design, the Latitude 10 tablet gives business the power of a go-anywhere, always on connectivity and productivity solution.

“With Windows 8 and intuitive touch screen functionality, as well as Intel’s next generation Intel Atom System on Chip (SoC) processor and 2GB RAM, the Latitude 10 is everything a user could want in a tablet and more. The 10.1” LED display is made of patented Gorilla Glass and has a wide viewing angle with capacitive 10-finger touch and optional stylus, for ultimate ease of use,” says Frank Lumley, Dell Business Unit Manager at DCC.

For IT and network managers, the headache of management has been taken care of. The Dell Latitude 10 integrates seamlessly, allowing the device to be managed as any other PC within the organisation using existing remote systems management solutions or Dell KACE appliances. World-class security includes Intel’s Platform Trust technology, which ensures data protection and a lock slot that helps to prevent theft. Optional security features include Trusted Platform Management (TPM 1.2), a fingerprint and smart card reader combo and Dell Data Protection and Encryption. These features, along with the backup of proven support and configuration services, ensure that the Latitude 10 delivers the reliable service and long-term stability needed for business.

“While the Latitude 10 offers features and functionality that appeal to business, the end user has not been forgotten. The device itself is highly portable, only 10.5mm thick and weighing just 658g, and boasts a convenient, removable battery with a choice of sizes so users can stay up and running for up to 10 hours. The device also features a durable yet stylish reinforced magnesium alloy frame for the ultimate combination of good looks and durability. An optional productivity dock even allows power users to get a desktop-like experience,” says Lumley.

Always-on connectivity is assured with multiple options including Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and optional mobile broadband. A convenient full-size USB port and SD memory card enable effortless access to collaboration tools for added productivity. Connecting to the optional dock provides an additional four USB ports as well as Gigabit Ethernet and HDMI.

“Tablets have taken the world by storm, and consumers have embraced the ability to connect anytime anywhere. This functionality has now been brought up to business standard with the Dell Latitude 10, which offers the power of a PC with the convenience of a tablet. It delivers connectivity, easy management and business level security through a familiar Windows interface that gives access to all of the business applications professionals need on the go,” Lumley concludes.

The Dell Latitude 10 will be available immediately at a recommended retail price of R10 300.00 including VAT.
