Well my earlier post was full of wishes and conjecture and as usual, pretty much all wrong.
I was saying that I would love it if a company would produce a tablet that could dock much like a laptop.
“Someone needs to build a docking station for a tablet or phone that has a regular keyboard and touch screen monitor connected to it. Yes, just like a laptop does now but is also power boosted by a “PC”. Follow? Basically work is performed on the PC but everything is stored on the tablet or phone so that you have everything when you are on the go. That or someone needs to build a tablet that can operate on the same level as a PC. But I don’t see that happening anytime soon.”
Well apparently someone has already thought of this….sort of.
Enter the Dell (yes Dell) Latitude 10 Windows Tablet.
It is everything I stated that I was looking for except for the PC part (there is none). All the performance (work) is handled by the tablet. I would prefer to have the power of a PC to do the work then store everything on the tablet but with that being said, this is pretty slick.
This docking station (pictured above is the Dell Docking Station for the Dell Latitude 10. Not exactly a creative name but it does allow for an external monitor to be connected via the HDMI connector. It also has additional (to what’s already on the tablet) USB ports so you can connect a keyboard and mouse. Lastly, it has the RJ-45 connector which allows for fast gigabit LAN connectivity. If that stuff’s important to you. P.S. an earphone jack too. Tiny thing as well. 4.8 inches wide by 5.5 inches deep by 5.5 inches tall. Retails for $169.
