Panasonic releases a tough tablet
Panasonic has unveiled the Toughpad family of professional-grade Android-powered tablets, which includes a 10′ and 7′ device.
The 10′ Toughpad A1, available first, is ideal for highly mobile outdoor workers in markets like aviation, construction, field sales and the public sector, where exposure to extreme environments is a constant challenge and the consequence of a failure is significant.
The device can also be used as a tool to optimize business processes as a cost effective pen / paper replacement. The 7′ Toughpad B1 targets similar markets, but in applications where screen real estate is not as critical and where device mobility and portability are critical.
‘Panasonic has been a leading force in the government and enterprise mobile computing space-including tablet, convertible tablet, and handheld devices-for over fifteen years’, said Rance M. Poehler, President of Panasonic Solutions Company.
‘For many manufacturers this is new territory, but it’s currently one of Panasonic’s growing product categories. Because of this, we have the unique ability to apply our market knowledge, intellectual property, engineering and RD resources to deliver an Android-powered tablet that is radically different from the largely consumer-based devices on the market today,’ he added.
The Toughpad tablets are developed from the inside out to address the needs of the business users. As a result, customers will get the most rugged, reliable and enterprise-appropriate tablets in the world – helping to drive efficiency and productivity in ways that were never possible.
