The 2011 Farm Forum Event was all about the integration of man and machine for the benefit of agriculture. The tablet device fits right into that category. More and more agri-businesses and producers are making a tablet standard issue in their business or on their farm. Their portability and processing power make them easier to carry than a traditional laptop, and also makes them a better fit as you move from job to job.
Along those lines is Dell’s Latitude XT Tablet. The tablet aims to give people all the power and flexibility of a computer with the portability and feel of a laptop. The tablets offer a high degree of customization with several options nicely suited to the farm environment.
Steve Weaver is the Corporate Sales Manager for Dell. I got him to give me a tour of the Latitude XT at this years Farm Forum Event in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
