Dell Latitude 10 review: a professional Windows 8 tablet with removable battery
8 March 2014
Conclusion: From our initial inspection, the Latitude 10 feels like a true business tablet. And that’s meant as much as a compliment as it is a criticism for its functional aesthetics. The replaceable battery isn’t hidden behind some sleek aluminum plate, and those gaping ports haven’t been left out in order to create a smooth piece of industrial design.
Excerpt: Dell’s Latitude 10 tablet is a fascinating creature. It’s the only tablet we’ve come across so far—and most likely the only one that exists—with a removable battery. It isn’t trying to be the slimmest or lightest model around, which sets it apart from everything else on the market. It uses an Atom CPU and doesn’t bother much with multimedia bells and whistles.
Dell Latitude 10 – a worthy Windows 8 competitor to the ThinkPad Tablet 2
2 June 2013
Conclusion: The Dell Latitude 10 is already on sale and it can be purchased in its basic configuration for only $499 – a very affordable price for such a device. That makes it a better choice than just about any other Windows 8 tablet (even the Lenovo ThinkPad Tablet 2 ). The Productivity Dock will cost you $100 by itself, and the price rises quite steeply if you want the full package with a 128 GB SSD, two batteries and the stylus, keyboard and mouse (you can use any keyboard and...
Summary: With all of that said, we want you to take a hard look on the Dell Latitude 10 if you’re looking for something portable and powerful. All the other elements that looked bad on our review are just minor things and is just a look on what are the cons. Great to say, there aren’t many. You won’t need a great camera on a tablet anyways, and the hard-to press buttons aren’t really much of a problem once you’re used to it.
Hands on: Dell Latitude 10 – a Windows tablet with an Atom
14 April 2013
Excerpt: In these tough times , PC makers are still grappling with how much processing power and features to place in their Windows 8 tablets, just to compete with low-cost, low-power iPads and Android tablets. The Dell Latitude 10 is one example of an either “half empty” or “half full” experience, depending on how you see things. Here’s a 10.1-inch tablet with Windows 8 (or Windows 8 Pro, depending on configuration), which runs your regular Windows programs.
Conclusion: The Dell Latitude 10 Enhanced Security adds an extra layer of protection to the Dell Latitude 10 tablet with Windows 8 Pro. It's the all-day, all-night Win 8 tablet to buy for your security conscious business.
Pros: Removable battery. Can run Windows XP/Vista/7/8 programs. Long battery life with standard and extended battery. Very portable. Wacom stylus option. Can be bundled with desktop dock. WWAN and GPS. Can charge via micro-USB. Has smart card reader and biometric fingerprint reader.

Excerpt: Are business oriented tablets such as the Dell Latitude 10 better suited for the workplace than popular mainstream tablets such as the iPad? Dell believes their solutions are. Last month, Dell issued a press release in which it claimed its Latitude 10 Enhanced Security tablet is "up to 17 times faster and 94 percent less expensive to deploy than iPads in large scale enterprise implementations." Those are bold claims with very specific figures to back them up.
Pros: Swappable battery, Runs Windows 8 Pro, Lots of great accessories, Solid performance, Excellent battery life
