its promise, but fulfill it did and the Latitude XT is now available on Dell's site. Well, sort of. Even with a completely default configuration, the XT has a "preliminary ship date" of January 15th, 2008. Oh well, at least that'll give you some time to hit up your friends and relatives for the cash to afford the first monthly payment on this thing. Also, from the looks of things Dell is going to be offering XP Tablet as the default OS for the XT, though Vista Business is a free "upgrade." Microsoft must be thrilled.
