Dell today announces the Latitude 10 essentials configuration to offer a secure, manageable and durable enterprise-ready tablet option to budget-conscious customers. Targeting organisations such as schools and small businesses, the new configuration offers essential productivity and collaboration features and a Windows 8 tablet experience.
“Dell’s heritage is rooted in meeting the needs of our customers with cost effective, tailored solutions that empower them to reach their potential be it in the office, classroom or hospital. This legacy, combined with our portfolio of new enterprise services and product offerings, such as the Latitude 10, enables our customers to deploy the latest technology while balancing IT control and end-user productivity,” says KT Ong, General Manager, Commercial Business, Dell Sales Malaysia.
While the aim is to help improve IT efficiency and decrease total cost-of-ownership, the Latitude 10 does not require new mobile device management or software licensing. It supports new and legacy Windows applications, compatible with Adobe Flash and connects with existing peripherals
The Latitude 10 is available with an optional dock like the traditional keyboard and mouse for desktop content creation activities. The USB port provides connectivity to existing equipment and SD card reader enables easy file transfer plus back-up when Internet access is not feasible.
“Our commitment to innovation in education runs deep, and the Latitude 10 essentials configuration offers the robust accessibility features and personalized learning experience educators, students, and parents tell us they need for a productive classroom. An end-to-end education solutions provider, Dell designed this tablet with schools in mind to provide an affordable, efficient device that is a snap to manage and deploy while protecting previous investments in applications and other classroom devices,” says Rani Burchmore, Head of Education Practice for South Asia & Korea, Dell.
The tablet is equipped with Microsoft Windows 8 features that maximise learning time with instant access to resources through the Instant-On with Connected Stand-By mode feature. It is powered by Intel’s Atom system on a chip (SoC) and can run Windows 8 Snap Mode, allowing students and teachers to multi-task between two applications, such as interacting with a remote teacher via Skype while taking notes in Microsoft OneNote.
The Latitude 10 essentials configuration 64 GB is available starting at RM 1,799 and the 32 GB will be available in the coming months.
