Difference between Dell Latitude 10 Windows Tablet and Dell XPS 10 Tablet

Key Difference: The Latitude 10 tablet is quite slick and light weight at 658 grams. The devices comes with a 10.1-inch IPS (1366 X 768) Wide View Angle LCD capacitive touch screen and is powered by a 1.8 GHz Intel Atom Z2760 processor. The Dell XPS 10 is a 10.1-inch tablet that comes with a keyboard Dock to make it into a laptop. The screen is an HD Display capacitive multi-touch screen, with 1366 x 768 pixels and an approximately 155 ppi pixel density. The sleek tablet has a metal chassis and has a rubber back for better gripping.

Dell is a popular computer manufacturer, which has made a name for itself in the laptop and desktop market. However, the company is still trying to garner a name for itself in the tablet market. The company launched the new Dell Latitude 10 Windows tablet in the beginning of 2013, that claims to bring all professional and personal needs of the desktop and laptop to a portable tablet. The tablet runs on Windows UI and OS to make it compatible with almost all Windows desktops and PCs.

The Latitude 10 tablet is quite slick and light weight at 658 grams without the dock and only the two-cell battery, with the four cell battery the device can weigh around 850 grams. The device is quite easy to hold in landscape mode, while in portrait it is a bit bulky and awkward. The devices comes with a 10.1-inch IPS (1366 X 768) Wide View Angle LCD capacitive touch screen that provides a decent enough resolution; however, the device does fall short on pixel density compared to the top-of-the-line tablets. The device also provides adequate picture quality, nothing mind-blowing, but it’s bad enough to complain either. The screen is made of Corning Gorilla Glass that protects it from shattering and small scratches.

The company has incorporated a number of ports for easy connectivity on the device itself such as USB 2.0, SD Memory Card Reader, Docking Connector, Stereo headphone/ Microphone combo jack, Mini-HDMI, Micro-USB charging port and Micro-SIM slot. The device also has the volume rocker and the power button on it in addition to all the ports. The device can be made into a laptop, similar to the other tablets in the category with a dock. However, the dock differs a little from the others and is only a plastic base with a metal support plate that stands at a weird angle and holds the tablet up. The dock itself houses four USB ports, an HDMI output, an audio-out jack and an Ethernet connection. The dock allows the device to support external keyboards and mouse that can be attached to the device.

The device is powered by a 1.8 GHz Intel Atom Z2760 Processor with Intel Burst Technology, making it quite fast and powerful for handling day to day functions. The tablet also runs a full version of the 32-bit Windows 8 or Windows 8 Pro (depending on the pricing of the model), which means that a person can use it as a proper desktop and install own desktop software, run different programs as they would on a proper desktop computer. This makes the tablet very customizable for personal as well as professional needs. The device comes with a 2 GB RAM, which lacks performance compared to the Core i5 processors. According to many review websites, the system is best for simple tasks and limited multitasking. The system also is a bit sluggish, when shifting from portrait to landscape modes.

The tablet comes with two battery options: 2-cell (30Whr) Lithium Ion battery (swappable) and

optional 4-cell (60Whr) Lithium Ion battery (swappable) for more power. The battery life is quite excellent and should last around 10 hours, according to Dell. The swappable battery allows users to get more juice out of the device by doubling the battery life. The tablet also comes in three different variants: $649 - Dell Latitude 10 essentials configuration - 64GB storage; $899 - Dell Latitude 10 - 64GB storage and $999 - Dell Latitude 10 (enhanced security) - 128GB storage. They have slight differences and added features that are available in the higher priced version; however, the hardware is the same in all of the versions.  The additional features in the high end tablet include fingerprint and smart card reader. The second and the third version come with Windows 8 Pro, while the basic one comes with Windows 8. Addition features in the two most expensive models are: Wacom stylus support, rear LED flash, micro-USB charging port, mini-HDMI port, micro-SIM slot and hardware TPM chip.

 The Dell XPS 10 is a 10.1-inch tablet that comes with a keyboard Dock to make it into a laptop. The tablet serves the purpose of fulfilling the need for the tablet on the go and a laptop for some serious professional work. The company has launched the tablet on the Windows RT OS, which have not been able to draw in many customers. According to every review website, the company has not been doing that well in sales of tablets due to the Windows OS. However, the design of this tablet and its features should bring in loyal Dell fans to the product.  The screen is an HD Display capacitive multi-touch screen, with 1366 x 768 pixels and an approximately 155 ppi pixel density, which is not the best resolution available on the tablets, but it wasn’t that bad when viewing the tablet. The sleek tablet has a metal chassis and has a rubber back for better gripping. The tablet itself is quite sleek and lightweight making it easier to carry. The screen is small though because of the black bezel on the screen. The screen is made using Asahi Dragontrail high strength glass for durability.

The device has a SIM card slot for optional 2G, 3G and 4G capability, if required. The tablet comes with 32/64 GB Flash Storage and also has a microSD slot that allows users to upgrade the internal storage capacity by 64 GB. The system is powered by a 1.5GHz Dual-core processor and has a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 GPU. The device provides a 2GB RAM, which allows serious multi-tasking capabilities. The tablet provides Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and USB capability. The dock (keyboard), when attached provides two extra USB 2.0 slots on either side. The keyboard is also sleek and thin with dedicated Windows soft keys and trackpad. Both the tablet and the keyboard have a charging port. This is because when docked, the charging port on the bottom of the device gets covered by the keyboard and the user can still charge using the secondary port.  The tablet has a 5MP rear camera with autofocus ability, but it lacks a flash. This results in distorted images in dark lighting. The camera also has weak video performance and the sharpness must be constantly updated during recording. The device also houses a 2MP secondary camera that is decent for snapshots and video conferencing.

The device houses a non-removable 28Wh 2-cell lithium-ion battery that provides 10 hours, 30 minutes of multimedia time, while the dock has an additional 27 Wh battery that extends battery life to 18 hours, 18 minutes. The device also fared decently during gaming tests. All of the devices are available Office Home & Student 2013 RT that can be changed and customized on the company’s website before shipping. The Windows OS only allows downloading apps from the Windows Stores, which does not have that many choices in apps. The tablet has been designed to be used as a personal tablet as well as a professional laptop, eliminating the need for spending on both.
