panasonic toughbook 33

Panasonic has today launched an updated version of its rugged 2-in-1 convertible – the Toughbook 33 (Mk2) – with faster 10th Gen Intel silicon inside, more memory configurations to go with it, richer port selection, and a touch-based fingerprint sensor. The new Panasonic rugged PC also updates the connectivity suite by offering support for Wi-Fi 6, Bluetooth 5.1, and dual-SIM (physical + eSIM) support.

The key focus of the device, of course, is on the rugged IP65-rated build, which employs Magnesium alloy and comes with MIL-STD-810G and MIL-STD-461F certifications. Additionally, the machine comes equipped with dual hot-swappable batteries, which means you can replace the depleted battery pack without having to shut down the Toughbook 33 convertible. You also get dual-SIM support on the device, a 10MP infrared front camera, and an 8MP world-facing snapper too.

I’ve been writing about consumer technology for over three years now, having worked with names such as NDTV and Beebom in the past. Aside from covering the latest news, I’ve reviewed my fair share of devices ranging from smartphones and laptops to smart home devices. I also have interviewed tech execs and appeared as a host in YouTube videos talking about the latest and greatest gadgets out there.
