Woah, we'd put this one to bed yonks ago, but after years of whispering Dell has come out and finally said it: it's making a tablet PC.The Dell Latitude model (pictured in a video on the company's blog, alongside the tasteful shirt of Dell's Jeff Clarke) will be a slim-built machine with revolving, fold-flat screen, enabling it to go from laptop to tablet in a matter of wrist spraining seconds.Big Jeff promises that the boys have been working hard to make the hinge durable and we're guessing that it packs Windows Vista Business for the pen-input support.Other than that we, like Fawlty Tower's Manuel, know nothing - except that it'll be coming out later this year. Eyes peeled chaps.
