The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet is both tough and powerful
Dell says that the Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet, the latest in the company's series of rugged devices, is able to handle roughly everything you can throw at it, such as liquid spills, dust, sand, mud, and even drops from over four feet high. Furthermore, the tablet is guaranteed to work at temperatures as low as -20 degrees F or as high as 145 degrees F. The company is marketing the Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet as the perfect device for the military, industrial work, adventurers, or emergency response crews.
Although the tablet can really take a beating and still work properly, this doesn't mean that it's not a powerful slab. The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet comes with Intel Core-X CPUs from the Broadwell generation, up to 512GB of SSD storage, Windows 8.1, as well as a battery that is said to keep the light on for about 12 hours. Dell is also offering a range of optional accessories, such as a keyboard cover and rugged pogo pin docks for vehicles and desks.
At the moment, Dell has yet to announce specific availability or pricing for the Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet, but we're going to assume that the slab won't come cheap. Looking no further than Dell's own product portfolio, we should note that the Dell Latitude 12 Rugged laptop comes with price tags starting north of $3,000.
