One of the biggest problems with tablets is that they break easily. Let’s face it, it’s not like you’re supposed to take your tablet rock climbing or to the beach with you. Dell knows this, and it’s why the company has been building the Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet.
Dell describes it as an extreme tablet, noting that it’s designed for performance and reliability under abnormal conditions. It can handle drops from over four feet and temperatures between -20 and 145 degrees F. It can also handle spills, mud, dust, and sand, which is why Dell believes it is the ideal tablet for military, emergency response crews, industrial workers or adventurers. The multi-touch screen works with work gloves on, and the tablet’s screen is easily seen in bright sunlight. As far as what’s under the hood, the Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet sports a 5th-gen Intel Core CPU, 12 hours of battery life and has up to a 512GB SSD. Pricing of the Latitude 12 Rugged is currently unknown, but expect to pay a hefty premium for the extra durability. [Purchase]
