If your working conditions would turn an iPad to scrap, Dell has a tablet for you. The Latitude Rugged 12 is a bruiser of a slate with environmental certifications including IP65 dust and water resistance and MIL-STD-810G temperature and impact ratings.
Inside the fortified shell is an unspecified Intel Core M processor, up to 512GB of solid-state storage, and support for business-ready features like Intel vPro and a Trusted Platform Module. The 11.6" display is illuminated by an extra-powerful backlight for easy reading in direct sunlight, and its touch digitizer can be used even by gloved hands. Available dual batteries are claimed to provide up to 12 hours of battery life.
Dell promises at least three docks for the tablet: a vehicle dock, a desk dock, and a detachable keyboard (with a customizable RGB LED backlight, no less). US availability is set to begin "by the end of July." Pricing wasn't announced, but a look through Dell's Rugged lineup suggests it'll carry a hefty premium over less durable devices. For more info, Dell has produced a promotional video that you can watch on YouTube.
