Microsoft might have placed plenty of faith in Windows RT being the dominant operating system for tablets that are powered by ARM processors, but it seems that this particular gamble failed to pay off, as you do not see that kind of madness follow the launch of such devices, just like what you see when the iPad was released. Of course, this does not mean that big time computer manufacturers are about to pull out from the Windows RT tablet market, as there might still be some hope that things could turn around with a new hardware design or much improved software. Dell is one of such computer manufacturers, where a Dell executive recently admitted that demand for Windows RT tablets has been nothing but a disappointment, which could be the main reason why Dell decided to slash the price of their entry level XPS 10 Windows RT tablet to $299.99, which is a huge discount from the heady heights of $449 prior.
What kind of hardware specifications can you find in the XPS 10? For starters, there is a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, a 10.1” display at 1366 x 768 resolution, and a 28 watt-hour battery which is said to deliver up to 10 hours of juice per charge, in addition to two cameras with 32GB of internal storage space to stash away your digital memories. Would this new low price point nudge you to open your wallet?
