Latitude 10 Dell tablet takes on iPad's health care stranglehold

While the iPad might have mind share in health care, the Dell tablet runs native Windows software, adds biometric and smart card authentication.

Unseating the iPad as the king of the tablet hill would be a tough task. One contender could be a Dell tablet, the Latitude 10, unveiled in advance of HIMSS 2013.
