Panasonic Already Has A 4K Ultra HD Tablet


When it comes to televisions at the CES this year, 4K Ultra HD is king. It seems like every serious TV manufacturer has arrived with some of these incredibly high-res screens to show off, pushing pixel counts well past the now-commonplace 1080p displays. Back when we were covering Sony’s press conference last night, we mused that it would probably be some time, if ever, before we saw these same kind of out-of-the-park resolutions come to tablets. It looks like we’ll have to eat our words already, as Panasonic just pulled out a 20-inch 4K UHD Windows 8 tablet at its own press event today.

Details are extremely sparse at the moment, and we’re not even sure that Panasonic has plans for the commercial sale of this tablet in anything resembling the near future, but one way or another, it’s very much real.

With a 3840 × 2560 resolution, a twenty-inch tablet would boast a pixel density of 220ppi – that doesn’t sound like much, considering the much higher figures we see on the new 1080p smartphones, but it’s comparable to the density you’ll find on the 13-inch MacBook Pro with Retina display or on the much more petite Nexus 7 tablet.
