Built like a tank, works like a tablet
The Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet doesn't try to be slim or svelte, but it is designed to be tough. The tablet has an 11.6-inch touchscreen display with Gorilla Glass 3, and rubberized edges to protect from bumps and scrapes.
A series of protected ports
The tablet has just one USB 3.0 port, and a Mini-HDMI port for video output.
Rear-facing camera with flash
On the rear of the tablet is an 8-megapixel camera with an LED flash. It also comes with a privacy-shutter to prevent eavesdropping..
A rear kickstand for desks, work surfaces
The kickstand at the back of the tablet is sturdy and strong, but it only has one clickable setting. The angle can be adjusted slightly but not by a considerable amount.
Fingerprint reader for extra security
The fingerprint sensor on the back works well but is sometimes difficult to find without fumbling around. Other security features includes a Trusted Platform Module 2.0 for helping to maintain data integrity.
Batteries can be popped out and swapped
The batteries can be popped out and changed in a flash. A neat feature is that each battery has a charge meter, making it easy to see how much charge is left on each battery.
A sharp, high-resolution touchscreen display
The display is high-definition and sharp, boasting a 1,366x768 resolution. The screen has a capacitive 10-point multi-touch screen, which can even be used through thick gloves.
Backlit keys help in low light
The keyboard accessory is backlit, allowing for use in low light.
Rubberized edges to protect keyboard, tablet from bumps
Even the keyboard has rubberized edges, helping the device stay safe from drops and spills -- and worse.
A sturdy frame, but heavy in weight
The tablet might be tough, but it's certainly heavy. It weighs 3.6 pounds, making the tablet slightly lighter than the average bag of sugar.
