Remember the time you had a Nokia 3310? Unlike the super slim smartphones of today, the 3310 could fall straight out of your pocket, roll down two flights of stairs and still emerge in one piece. Dell's Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet is pretty much the Nokia 3310 of tablets. The workhorse is built to weather even the most extreme conditions — be it dust storms, water spills, and even drops from four feet high.

If you're travelling to Ladakh for a game of polo or traversing the Afar region in Africa, you might want to leave your iPad at home and take this trusty workhorse along with you. The tablet is fitted with gloved-enabled multi-touch capabilities, in-built thermal management, fifth-generation Intel Core M processors, and can last for up to 12 hours just running on two 2-cell batteries. The crisp 11.6 inch HD display and 512GB of storage isn't too shabby either. In terms of connectivity, the tablet is Wi-Fi enabled, but you'll probably end up falling back on its mobile broadband and GPS capabilities if you're heading somewhere remote.

Speaking about the tablet, Harjeet Singh Rekhi, general manager, Client Solutions of Dell South Asia said: "Dell Rugged devices are critical to many industries including military, emergency response, public safety, industrial work, scientists and even adventurers. It's important for Dell's Latitude Rugged devices to provide superior computing power and the mobile capabilities they require to accomplish their jobs."
