Dell Malaysia has posted a video (direct link, embedded below) that has inadvertently spoiled details of the company's long-delayed Windows 7 tablet. The clip confirms a hinted-at Latitude ST name and lines up with the Peju slate leaked back in July. The 10-inch design has a unique iMac-style dock to turn it into a makeshift desktop with Ethernet, HDMI, and USB ports.
What is expected to be Dell's codenamed Peju tablet has been photographed and the leaked images were shared by Engadget. The 10-inch, Windows 7 tablet should arrive with 2GB of RAM onboard, though, as reported earlier, models with at least twice that should be available. The photos also confirm the presence of a USB port, an HDMI output, and a stylus holder.
Dell during its fiscal results call late Tuesday was optimistic about its prospects for Windows 8 tablets. Founder Michael Dell characterized initial work on slates for the new OS as "pretty encouraging." He added that he only saw Android as the other practical alternative, although he couched it in terms of options available to Dell, not relative to the iPad.
Dell's delayed Windows tablet has been given a codename and hard specs in an unusually vocal and detailed blog leak. Called the Peju or possibly the Latitude ST, the 10-inch slate would be an aggressive rival to ASUS' Eee Slate that eliminates some, though not all, of the weaknesses. Although it would still have a Core i5 processor, Dell Peju Insider claims the 5,500mAh battery would get about six to eight hours of real battery life versus just two for the 12-inch ASUS tablet.
