Panasonic Unveils Ruggedized Toughpad FZ-G1 Windows 8 Tablet


The 20-inch monster Panasonic 4K UHD Windows 8 tabletwith a resolution of 3840 × 2160 is not the only tablet announced by the company at this year’s CES in Las Vegas. Still Windows 8 but this time the selling point isn’t the enormous screen but the words “world’s thinnest and lightest” ruggedized tablet (2.4 pounds and 0.75 in thin).

The Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1 runs full fledged Windows 8 and has a 10.1-inch screen with 800 nits of brightness and Full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. Specs also include a 1.9GHz Intel Core i5-3437U processor Ivy Bridge CPU, 4GB of RAM, and either 128GB or 256GB SSD storage. 3G and 4G connectivity come as an option but there’s a USB 3.0 port, HDMI, as well as an option for another port acting as either microSDxC, ethernet port, serial connectivity, or GPS. Bluetooth 4.0 and WiFi a/b/g/n are standard.

All this is packed in a ruggedized body which should survive 4 feet drops, rain, and dust, as well as temperatures from 14 to 122 degrees Fahrenheit (-10 to 50C).

On to the bad part: while it will be available in February, the price is rather spicy: around $2,899!
