The second day of the ongoing Internationale Funkausstellung (IFA) trade show in Berlin once again belonged to Windows 8. Among the Windows 8 devices showcased on Thursday was a disparate
trio of Dell XPS PCs
: the Dell XPS 10 Windows RT tablet, the XPS Duo 12 convertible Ultrabook, and the XPS One 27 all-in-one PC.
Dell XPS 10: Recently, Dell was named by Microsoft as one of its few Windows RT launch partners but no device was revealed. If you’ve been wondering what Dell’s maiden Windows RT device is going to look like, the answer is now here in the form of the ARM-based Dell XPS 10, about which we know very little apart from the fact that it has a 10-inch display, long battery life, and a mobile keyboard dock.
XPS Duo 12: If you’ve seen the Dell Inspiron Duo netbook, which was launched in late 2010, then you know where the inspiration for the Duo 12 convertible ultrabook came from. The XPS Duo 12 is equipped with a 12.5-inch full HD display. Thanks to its “flip hinge” design, folding the Duo 12’s Corning Gorilla Glass-covered display over its keyboard gives you a Windows 8 tablet.
XPS One 27: Like the other two XPS devices unveiled today, the XPS One 27 too is a touchscreen device, albeit a considerably bigger one. Its 27-inch Wide Quad HD Display (2560x1440) is said to deliver “twice the pixel density of any other 27-inch AIO PC.”
“The Dell XPS 10, XPS Duo 12 and XPS One 27 will be available for sale when Windows 8 is available at the end of October,” Dell stated in a press release. “More details on pricing will be announced when available.”
