IFA 2012 | Dell outs the XPS Duo 12 and XPS 10 portable devices
Dell has announced yesterday at the IFA trade show in Berlin that it is adding two new mobile products to its existing XPS Series – the XPS 10 tablet and the XPS Duo 12 convertible Ultrabook. Aimed at users on-the-move, both devices will reportedly go on sale alongside Windows 8 on October 26th.
The manufacturer claims the tablet sports a 10-inch touchscreen display and runs on the RT version of Windows 8’s OS. Furthermore, Dell’s upcoming slate computer is apparently powered by an ARM-based Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 central processing unit and an integrated Adreno GPU.
According to a report from The Verge, the XPS 10 can be purchased with a QWERTY keyboard dock and offers up to 20 hours of battery life on a single charge (when connected to the dock).
XPS Duo 12
Next in line is the XPS Duo 12, which seems to be the successor to the company’s Atom-based Inspiron Duo model introduced two years ago. In contrast to the 2010 Duo, however, this system can be configured with up to an Intel Core i7 chip and sports an illuminated keyboard.
Combining two devices in one, the convertible Ultrabook features a flip hinge design (aluminium + carbon fiber) and a 12.5-inch touchscreen display with Gorilla Glass coating, and a native resolution of 1920-by-1080 pixels (Full HD).
Dell says it will reveal pricing details when available.
