More Dell XT Tablet PC Specs – When Will This Thing Ever Ship?

Dell XT Tablet PC Long Zheng, of Windows Vista Magazine, has a plethora of specs on the Dell XT Tablet PC, which are very similar to the specs we posted several months ago. I’m not sure where he got them, but calls them official.

The question remains, though – when is this thing ever going to ship? Are we looking at months, according to Dell’s Keynote address where multi-touch was demoed or do they plan on shipping the capacitive touch model this month, while the multi-touch is in development. Guess we’ll see.

Here are the specs Long Zheng uncovered:
