Dell’s XPS 10 Windows RT tablet hits the FCC, gets torn down
Dell announced its first Windows RT tablet, the XPS 10, back in August, and today the device made its first appearance on the FCC. Dell’s filings for the XPS 10 include a host of interesting documents, including internal and external photos of the device, along with a user manual.
The XPS 10 will feature a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm SnapDragon processor, up to 64GB of flash storage, dual-band 802.11 a/b/g/n WiFi, front (2MP) and rear (5MP) cameras, and a 10.1-inch 1366×768 screen. The device will cost $500 – matching the price of Microsoft’s Surface tablet.
External photos of the XPS 10 show a bulky charger with what appears to be a proprietary dock connector. However, the device’s manual indicates that the XPS 10 can be trickle charged by micro USB port. The XPS 10 will also come with a micro USB to standard USB adapter and mini HDMI to HDMI cable. The device will also have a microSD card slot to accommodate additional storage, allowing users to double the XPS 10’s storage to 128GB.
The XPS 10 is expected to start shipping on December 12, 2012.
