Boy Genius Report (BGR) acquired some hot information regarding Dell‘s roadmap for its Latitude line of notebook PCs. Around November of this year, Dell is planning to introduce a convertible tablet PC, its XT2. And around the January 2009 timeframe Dell will be phasing out its current XT.
Most likely the 12.1″ LCD will sport a LED backlight and the XT2 is geared to earning Energy Star and EPEAT ratings. The chassis seems to be moving toward using magnesium alloy to make it tough and light. Finally, and I don’t know why it took so long, the XT2 will probably have a backlit keyboard.
