Leak reveals Dell Latitude 10 and XPS 12 Windows 8 tablets

Summary:The Latitude 10 is a traditional 10-inch slate, while the XPS 12 is a 12.5-inch convertible tablet.

Dell has a history of being as leaky as the Titanic post-iceberg, so it should come as no surprise that the computing giant has done it again, somehow letting slip a pair of new tablets running Windows 8.

Neowin first spotted the 10.1-inch Latitude 10 slate, which will be powered by an Intel dual-core Clover Trail Atom processor and include 2GB of memory and up to 128GB of SSD storage. The site says the two-cell battery would provide roughly 6 to 8 hours of battery life, while the four-cell option would give 10 to 12 hours juice. At 1.57 pounds without security add-ons, the Latitude would be a little heavier than the new iPad, which already is a bit heftier than the iPad 2.

Perhaps more intriguing is the XPS 12, which is a 12.5-inch convertible tablet of the type Microsoft is pushing with its Windows 8 launch. Neowin was not able to find out much information on the system, but it does sport edge-to-edge Gorilla Glass and, of course, a physical keyboard when you feel like laptopping instead of tableting.

With Windows 8's official introduction set for later this year, these leaked slides should be taken with a grain of salt, as specs could change at any time. But they suggest that Dell is indeed making good on its promise to back the new OS with more mobile form factors. What do you think of them?
