We've had Dell's Latitude XT convertible tablet at ZDNet Towers for a couple of days, and been impressed with its sleek brushed aluminium finish, near-ThinkPad-quality keyboard, integrated HSPDA, diminutive AC adapter and capacitative touchscreen.

About the touchscreen. We don't have a lot of luck with touchscreens, and now the XT has fallen victim to The Curse of ZDNet Reviews. The very morning we were planning to do a video review of the unit, it woke up looking like this:

The machine has suffered no more than the average London-Bedford commuter at this time of year (jostling, overheating, general sense of ennui).

As soon as Dell has got to the bottom of the fault, or provided another sample, we'll bring you the review!

UPDATE: Having sat and thought about it all morning, the Latitude XT has decided to show half a Vista desktop. Not the most useful half, mind you, but it's some sort of progress. Maybe by home time it'll all come back...
