The widely leaked Dell Latitude XT2 tablet has finally been officially announced, and as expected, it includes multi-touch gestures, and claims up to 11 hours of battery life (if you use a giant 6-cell battery, plus an additional battery slice).
It was almost a year ago that we first got wind of this sequel to the popular Latitude XT tablet. At the time, the leaked docs we saw pointed to a November 2008 release, but it's clearly taken a bit longer to come to market. According to Dell's press release:
Multi-touch capabilities on the Latitude XT2 allow users to use natural gestures like a pinch or tap for scrolling, panning, rotating and zooming that work with productivity applications they use every day. Dell's integration of multi-touch screen technology allows customers to use the full real estate of the display, as opposed to just the touchpad.
The XT2 has an Intel ULV processor, a 12.1-inch display, and supports up to 5GB of RAM. It starts at $2,399 and is available starting today at Dell's Web site.
