Panasonic’s Toughbook® will be available as an Android tablet in the fourth quarter of this year. This announcement was made by the Panasonic Solutions Company through its press release. The press release read that
The new Toughbook® tablet will address a current gap by delivering a product designed with security, functionality and real-world reliability in mind’
Rance Poehler, president, Panasonic Solutions Company has been quoted to have said that tablets
are engineered for consumers and don’t offer appropriate levels of security and durability or the functionality needed for business use
Therefore, Panasonic believes that the latest Toughbook tablet, like all other Toughbook models will be built for the mission-critical mobile user.
Panasonic hopes to increase the appeal of the tablet to many more users with this latest update. They also hope to tap into government establishments as potential customers by instilling the much needed security element.
In the press release, Panasonic announced that the screen of the tablet will be a high brightness screen that will be easy to view in daylight. This will help users read information on the screen despite light conditions. It also announced that it will also have an active stylus that helps its users to capture signatures on the tablet’s 10.1” XGA multi-touch display.
Though the overall toughness of the model will be maintained some of the interesting features will include:
- satellite-based GPS
- full-shift battery life
- professional-grade accessories
- optional embedded 3G/4G mobile broadband connectivity
