Dell made a big splash late last year when it introduced the first Tablet PC with a capacitive digitizer like that used in the iPhone. The 12-inch screen has both the capacitive and an active digitizer provided by N-Trig to give dual capability to the XT. Well, it would have but the capacitive touch wasn’t fully enabled at launch and it was a few months before Dell supplied the software to enable the full capability of the N-Trig. Unfortunately it seems that users are having a bunch of trouble with the N-Trig setup and Rob Bushway of GottaBeMobile has had enough. Rob was one of the earliest champions of the Dell XT and spent a fortune of his own money to get his hands on one. That makes his recent tirade about the Dell XT particularly poignant as he has had enough.
Dell and N-Trig: These problems need to be addressed ASAP and thereneeds to be some public dialogue between Dell, N-Trig, and your usersabout what is going on and when we can expect resolution. Dellcustomers: I encourage you to contact customer support and let yourvoices be heard. Until these issues are addressed and fixed, I cannotrecommend to anyone that they purchase the Latitude XT Tablet PC. We always felt that Dell was putting too high a financial premium on this technology.
That high premium makes this situation totally unforgivable for those who shelled out the big bucks for something that is less than desirable.
