Dell Releases New Extreme Tablet for Professionals Working in Harsh Environments

Built for professionals in some of today’s most extreme environments, Dell Technologies has announced its newly redesigned Latitude 7230 Rugged Extreme, a premium tablet delivering the ultimate in-field performance and productivity.

The lightest and most powerful 12” fully rugged tablet on the market, the new Rugged Extreme is designed specifically for professionals in arduous roles demanding critical reliability. The 7230 Rugged Extreme Tablet’s durability and mobility, perfect for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and other first responders, are matched by its reliability and security features required to help military and government officials, for example, safely manage highly sensitive information.

Regardless of the environment, the tablet now provides up to 20 hours of battery life, with dual hot-swap batteries for continuous operation of the device. This is critical for shift work in manufacturing, the military, first responders and more.

A true 16:10 aspect ratio display now provides 13% more active screen area than previous generations giving the 7230 Rugged Extreme the largest screen area in a 12” fully rugged tablet. Plus, glove-touch capability allows optimal screen interactivity.

The 7230 Rugged Extreme is drop-tested from up to 1.2m and temperature-tested from -28C to 62C to withstand the most strenuous circumstances.

Commenting on the launch of the new device, Tom Tobul, Vice President and General Manager for the Performance PCs portfolio of products at Dell Technologies, said: “From factories to ambulances, deserts to the Arctic, professionals working in harsh edge environments turn to Dell Latitude Rugged for peace of mind. The new Latitude 7230 Rugged Extreme Tablet is no exception – it’s the latest in a line of trusted devices for workers in some of today’s most challenging environments. This premium tablet is built for outstanding field performance and productivity, delivering critical reliability, all while withstanding extreme surroundings.”

In addition, new and enhanced accessories are built to match the ruggedness of the tablet and support its use in a broad range of environments. Some of those accessories include:

—  New detachable keyboard
—  Active pen to further enhance screen interactivity
—  Rotating hand strap and shoulder strap built with durable and cleanable materials
—  Magnetic mount that enables users to attach the tablet to any metallic wall or surface
—  Rigid handle that supports ease of mobility and is reversable, according to preference and ergonomics

Showing the device in action, Dell released a video of Mike Libecki, National Geographic Explorer and Dell Ambassador, who used the Rugged Extreme tablet in the extremes of Antarctica to study the environmental impact of microplastics.

The 7230 Rugged Extreme tablet will be available globally by the end of 2022.
