It has just been a month for Microsoft Surface tablet in the market but it’s facing a lot of competition in the market. Dell has recently released a feature loaded tablet – Dell XPS 10. Dell XPS 10, in a lot of ways, similar to the Surface tablet. If you are an enthusiastic tablet used and at the same time, a business or someone who is much into laptop and all then maybe Dell has done it for you. Dell has basically combined the precision of laptop with the portability of a tablet. They have named that combination – Dell XPS 10. Dell XPS 10 is available in the market at the cost of $499 and that’s a rational price. For the battery purpose, Dell has fitted Dell XPS 10 with a powerful Li-Ion (28 Wh) battery. To know more about features, continue reading.
Since I have mentioned that this tablet is launched basically to integrate the use of laptop and a tablet, that’s why Dell has installed Windows OS on it. Windows RT is installed on Dell XPS 10 (to be very précised). Windows RT is also present on Microsoft Surface Tablet and various other phones. Windows RT is used primarily in phones with ARM Architecture.
Dell XPS 10 is having a Dual-core 1.5 GHz processor with accelerometer, gyro, compass etc kind of sensors. GPU of Dell XPS 10 is not unknown. Dell XPS 10 is expected to score good in benchmark tests with such a powerful processor. And of course, you won’t find it lagging, even while doing multitasking.
Dell XPS 10 offers you cellular service too, i.e. you can use it for calling your friends (and foes). Dell XPS 10 supports 4G LTE, 3G (Optional), Bluetooth v4.0, micro USB, Wi-Fi, Micro SIM etc. But features such as GPRS, EDGE are missing. Data connectivity of Dell XPS 10 is far better than the Surface tablet, may be a thousand times better.
Dell XPS 10 comes in two variants – one with 32GB internal memory and the other one with 64GB internal memory. The expandable memory, though, of both the tablets is 64GB via microSD card. Frankly, I wasn’t much surprised by the memory of this tablet. It was like OK. I took it at the face value; after all 64GB is getting so common nowadays.
Dell XPS 10 is having both – primary and secondary cameras to keep girls busy with their photo sessions. Dell XPS 10 is having a 5MP primary camera with 2592 х 1944 pixels. It’s having a 2MP secondary camera. You can also record HD (720p) movie with this amazing tab @30 frames per second speed. For easing up the job for you, Dell has put in a autofocus feature.
Dell XPS 10 is a 10.1inch tablet with 1366 x 768 pixels resolution. The dimensions of the tablet are 274.7 x 177.3 x 9.2 mm which makes it quite sleeker. The total weight of the tablet is 635grams and it’s fitted with TFT capacitive touchscreen display that makes it quite smooth to use. There is optional mobile dock with standard QWERTY keyboard and trackpad.
Clearly, Dell XPS 10 is a power loaded tablet with some features best in class. The only thing that I find disheartening is why would anyone not go with iPad 3, after all it’s just a bit more expensive but it comes with even harder features like iOS support, Apple brand name, powerful processor, amazing camera etc. Maybe, Dell will find an answer to this but till then, my first choice would be an iPad.
