Dell Latitude XTの概要The Dell Latitude XT is a thin, convertible tablet ultra-portable computer with a small notebook form factor and a 12.1 inch LCD screen that is capable of being written on with a stylus or by the touch of a finger through the implementation of digitizing tablet technology and a touch screen. For comfortable tablet use, the screen rotates 180 degrees and lays down flat on top of the keyboard. It is ideal for highly mobile professionals and can easily be used in a tablet or tradition notebook computer configuration.
達成しようとした目標The objective was to create a convertible tablet PC with an overall size and weight that would allow full performance features including a full sized keyboard, for use by mobile workers and a stylish and highly functional design suitable to a wide range of user environments such as from a doctors office to a construction site.

Dell Latitude XTのデザインについてThe design challenge was to create a convertible tablet PC with an overall size and weight that would allow for a full slate of performance features for mobile workers, while implementing a classy, stylish design. Extensive customer feedback was used throughout the design and development process, drawing upon usability testing, monitoring of customer support calls, and competitive analysis.
Dell Latitude XTはどのような使用者・利用者を想定したかTypical users are highly mobile professionals and field workers such as doctors, professionals, pharmaceutical reps, supervisors, appraisers, educators, and so on.
Dell Latitude XTはその使用者・利用者にどのような価値を実現したかMany user studies were conducted on the grip area since this is so important for a mobile device. The Latitude XT tablet PC has an attached keyboard, like laptops, but you can rotate the screen and lay it flat over the keyboard for a comfortable reading and writing. With the extended life media slice battery attached to the entire bottom, battery life is dramatically extended.
社会・文化および地球環境の視点から解決すべき問題点The overall design and thinness of the Tablet PC, as size and weight are very important for the class of portable computer. Furthermore, since it is also a hand-held device, the shape and grip area had to be designed to be as comfortable and secure as possible.
その問題点に対し、どのように対応したかWe designed a grip size and shape that is more ergonomically friendly for handling and carrying, and a flat back surface that makes it easier to balance in your hand while using. Also a flashing LED indicator to alert you when the pen/stylus is missing from its bay, and carefully considered placement of connectors and venting so the cooling fan doesnt blow hot air on the users hand.
