Dell is announcing the launch of the†Latitude 7212 Rugged Extreme Tablet, delivering the uncompromised performance, flexibility, and reliability needed for the world’s toughest jobs and harshest environments. Digital transformation in the military, public safety, industrial, and energy sectors demands purpose-built technology that is designed with portability and durability in mind. Organizations of all sizes depend on the proven performance our latest tablet brings for mission critical applications and workflows.

Whether it’s extreme cold, heat, humidity, corrosive sand, or sea water, the Dell Latitude 7212 Rugged Extreme Tablet is built to withstand the most brutal environments. †Backed by Dell’s global support and supply chain services, this intelligently tough tablet has been engineered to be lighter and more powerful than previous generations while providing more performance and battery life. Weighing just over 2.8 lbs. for base configurations†and built with the latest Intel 6th†and 7th†Generation Core I-series 15 watt processors, our newest offering delivers up to 19 hours of battery life with dual, hot-swappable batteries. Our customers depend on investment protection and despite all of these improvements on the inside, it is still backward compatible with docking solutions for desks and vehicles and also offers enterprise-ready security and manageability to safeguard data and sensitive information for field service, public safety and military professionals.†

The new Latitude 7212 Rugged Extreme tablet offers †a competitive set of features available on the market and does so with IT budgets and end users in mind:

  • Scalable performance with 6th and 7th generation Intel Core i-series CPUs for both Windows 7 and Windows 10 support

  • Up to 1TB of removable PCI-Express NVMe SSD storage for power users and applications that need impressive speed and storage capacity

  • Freedom from wires with backward compatible pogo docking for desk and vehicle and USB Type C connectivity with one wire docking
  • Optional dedicated GPS location capabilities and optional integrated 4GLTE to keep users connected to mission critical systems on the go
  • A multi-touch glove capable bright and vivid 11.6″ FHD display that features a Gorilla Glass cover for unparalleled outdoor view-ability and durability
  • The Dell Rugged ecosystem includes an assortment of handles and straps that have been redesigned for maximum comfort and ease of use for highly mobile users

  • A new kickstand that rotates a full 180 degrees for a variety of comfortable viewing angles
  • Forward and backward compatibility for ecosystem and expansion, making it a future-proof investment whether as a replacement or a new purchase

Military, public safety, manufacturing, infrastructure, field service, energy, and adventure sectors are also increasingly mobile and require a device that they can rely on completely to perform mission critical functions in extreme conditions,” said†Shannon MacKay, vice president, Dell Rugged. “The new Latitude 7212 Rugged Extreme Tablet meets and exceeds those needs with a new light-weight form factor, optimized front of screen experience and best-in-class performance.
