I contacted Dell via online Chat as well as phone number 1-800-456-3355 and was not able to find out their entry level price for Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet. A Dell sales person I spoke to said he didn’t know prices yet for it. He did stipulate that he thought it might ship with Windows ten operating system.

If not then this tablet will ship with Windows eight operating system. You can read Dell’s official Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet press release. Also, you can check out Dell’s preliminary Latitude 12 Rugged Tablet product information.
