Dell jumped into the tablet game with their multi-touch XPS 10 model that runs Windows RT. Couple it with the optional mobile keyboard dock and you’ve got a full fledged laptop that boasts over 18 hours of battery life. Up until today, the XPS 10 was offered in an Wi-Fi only model which seriously hindered the ability to access the web on the go.
Luckily, this problem is no longer an issue as they have updated their online store to offer an XPS 10 model with an optional LTE radio. This radio was found to be a Qualcomm Gobi modem which is an excellent addition to the XPS 10’s already impressive specifications. The only catch is the LTE option is exclusive to the 64GB model therefore you have to add an additional $150 onto the base model’s price. This means the cheapest LTE ready XPS 10 model retails for just under $600 though it is still $130 cheaper than Apple’s 64GB LTE iPad. Keep in mind this $600 price tag does not include the keyboard dock, which runs an additional $150.
As for the carrier options, the XPS 10’s LTE model currently supports AT&T only though it is unclear whether they will expand to offer Verizon or any other competing carriers in the future. AT&T offers multiple different rate plans for their 4G LTE service including a mobile share which has no commitment and runs at $10/month per device, a standard monthly data plan which runs around $30 per month, and prepaid options.
