Dell Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet (Broadwell) Laptop Review (Page 3)

Physical Overview Continued


The smart card slot has a plastic card already inside of it to protect it from dust and splashes. On one side of the card is Morse code for SOS and HELP, STOP, and directions on how to find north. On the other side of the card, you get a ruler in both inches and centimeters. The fingerprint reader is on the rear as is the NFC sensor.


Both the front and rear camera get physical covers to protect you from being spied on, and lights will come on when the camera is in use.


The rear camera has a large flash, and the quality is decent.


The tablet does have a heavy duty fan designed for rugged environments, you might hear it if you are doing very intensive tasks, but otherwise, it's silent.


The unit comes with two 26Wh batteries, which you can hot swap when the unit is turned on. They last quite a long time, mainly because the hardware sips power.


There are many buttons on the front of the tablet including rotation lock, volume down, volume up, Windows, P1, P2, and P3. You can program the keys through Rugged Control Center to do different things such as launch a program, enter night vision mode or turn on the flashlight.
