The $499 price for XPS 10 was no surprise to Sarah Rotman Epps, senior analyst at Forrester Research.
"They are competing with not just the iPad, but also Microsoft's Surface tablet with RT," Rotman Epps said. "Any RT tablet that comes in above that [$499] price will really struggle."
Dell will likely sell more tablets with Windows than it did with Android, Rotman Epps said.
"Android just wasn't a product that people wanted to buy from Dell," Rotman Epps said, adding that Dell is still a strong brand, and Windows is a better fit for the company's hardware.
