Dell Inc., the world’s second-largest personal-computer maker, plans to sell its first pen- and finger-controlled machine this month to attract more mobile users. The Latitude XT tablet has a 31cm screen and costs $2,499, Glenn Keels, Dell’s director of commercial product marketing, said.
The machine weighs 1.6kg and has a battery life of almost five hours. The slate-shaped machine operates by touch, using the body’s electrical impulses rather than pressure to activate the screen. The product is targeted at health-care and government workers, as well as educators and insurance adjustors. Bloomberg
