Panasonic® unveils ToughPad tablets for the tough
For those who have butterfingers, Panasonic takes good care of them. After launching the sturdy and strong range of Panasonic Toughbooks, it has now captured the booming tablet arena and has landed its feet in the slate market by launching its array of ToughPad tablets.
Panasonic has made debut in the same series by launching two models of ToughPad A1 - the 10.1 inches tablet and ToughPad B1 - the 7 inches tablet. These two Android 3.2 (Honeycomb) based tablets are combined with durability and rugged features, and hence these slates do not bear the logo of 'Handle with Care'. The hard-shelled and weather-resistant Android tablets have it all and are ideal for those who use technology on the go. These are the best companions for those who work at construction sites as well as aviation and many other outdoor professions. Panasonic calls its tablets a perfect combination of mind and muscle.
The rugged tablets come equipped with extensive features. Let’s check out each one of these separately.
ToughPad A1: This 10 inches tablet comes equipped with 1.2 Ghz Marvell Dual Core processor and an internal storage of 16 GB and 1 GB RAM. The sturdy tablet can easily withstand a drop from a height of 4 foot and a temperature as high as 122 degrees Fahrenheit. What’s more! The tablet is also resistant to dirt, grime and water. A 5 MP front camera and a 2 MP rear camera further add up to its list of features. With a weight of merely 2.13 pounds, the A1 is a fully rugged and charged tablet.
Talking about the ToughPad B1, 7 inch tablet, Panasonic has not revealed much about it. But more or less it would also include features similar to A1. Both of these tablets will be available in the market in the coming year. The A1 is expected to be priced at $1299, whereas B1 is anticipated to be less expensive.
