Dell hopes you keep that iPad at home when you come to work and instead use its new Latitude ST tablet to get your productivity on. The company has just launched the Windows 7 slate with an eye to the corporate market, as well as healthcare and education workers.

Dell says the Latitude ST is ideal for these settings, combining Windows 7 Professional with the company's Electronic Medical Records and Connected Classroom services. Dell is also collaborating with a slew of business partners to get the tablet certified for their apps.

We don't know much about specs at this point, other than the Latitude ST uses Intel Atom processors, sports a 10-inch screen, offers stylus support, and includes front and rear cameras, USB and HDMI ports, and an SD memory card slot. As Engadget points out, the link to the product page on Dell's blog post isn't working, so other details are scarce.

The Dell Latitude ST will launch on November 1, with pricing yet to be announced. Can it provide a viable alternative to the iPad in an enterprise setting? Let us know your thoughts in the Talkback section.
