Dell has recently introduced a new addition to its rugged tablet range – the Dell Latitude 7030 Rugged Extreme Tablet. This device is being marketed as the world’s lightest 10-inch fully rugged Windows tablet and is built to cater to the needs of people who require both durability and portability while working in the field.

The Dell 7030 Rugged Extreme Tablet is aimed at users who spend most of their working hours outside of a traditional desk setup, such as on a factory floor or in a machine shop. Dell claims that this tablet is ideal for professionals who are always on the go.

Dell 7030 Rugged Tablet Specifications & Features

The Dell 7030 Rugged Extreme Tablet is a compact and lightweight device, weighing only 2.2 pounds. It is one of the lightest tablets in its category and serves as the smaller sibling of the previously launched 12-inch Latitude 7230 Rugged Extreme Tablet. While the 12-inch model is suitable for short commutes or long shifts, the 10-inch model is more portable and is ideal for tasks related to machinery or line inspections.

The tablet features a 10.1-inch FHD+ (1920 x 1200) display with a 16:10 aspect ratio, providing maximum screen real estate. The panel can reach 1000 nits, making the display visible even in direct sunlight, and its glove-touch capability ensures usability in challenging environments.

Despite its smaller size, the 7030 Rugged Extreme Tablet is highly durable. It has IP-65 and MIL-STD 810 ratings, which means that it can survive extreme conditions. The tablet can withstand drops from up to four feet and temperature extremes from -20°F to 145°F. Its IP-65 rating ensures protection against dust, dirt, and water.
