Dell unveils a super-durable Windows tablet

by Jacob Kleinman | July 22, 2015

Dell just unveiled the Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet, the latest in its family of durable slates. The new device runs Windows 8.1 and offers some impressive specs along with a rugged design built to protect you from rough environments.

The Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet packs an 11.6-inch HD display specially designed so you can read in direct sunlight, while the touchscreen works with gloves. It also boasts up to 12 hours of battery life thanks to a pair of battery slots and a power-saving Intel Core M processor, along with a whopping 512GB of storage, 8GB of RAM, Wi-Fi and the option to add cellular support.

The rugged design and IP65 rating promises to handle water, sand, dust, extreme temperatures and drops at up to 4 feet, but keep in mind that dust and water rating isn’t as solid as a device with something like an IP67 rating. It also features a kickstand and an optional detachable keyboard cover.

Dell hasn’t said exactly how much it will cost, but if you’re often out in the field and need a rugged tablet, this might be a solid option. The Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet will be available by the end of the month.
