Android-enabled Panasonic Toughbook tablet to retail later this year

Panasonic Toughbook Tablet

The tablet war is still on and Android has been playing a major role in this combat. Here’s another piece of news that intensifies both the battle and Android’s position in the realm. The newly unveiled enterprise-grade Panasonic Toughbook tablet powered by the Android operating system has been sculpted to offer a portable computing solution with effective reliability and functionality.

Unlike other trendy and chic tablets which are being tossed out from varied labs, the architecture of this device does away with glossy screens. Catering specifically to mobile workers, it has been plugged to entail high brightness, daylight viewable 10.1-inch XGA multi-touch display. The company will also pack an active stylus along for some assistance to browse through the onscreen content.

“Enterprise customers are very interested in the tablet market, but have been frustrated by the lack of appropriate solutions,” explained Rance Poehler, President, Panasonic Solutions Company. “The vast majority of tablet devices—regardless of the OS—are engineered for consumers and don’t offer appropriate levels of security and durability or the functionality needed for business use. Like all Toughbook products, our Toughbook tablet will be designed and constructed with the mission-critical mobile user in mind.”

The system sports a steadfast and resilient construction for putting up an efficient performance through extreme operating conditions. Comprising various satellite-based GPS features along with full-shift battery life, the tablet also features an optional integrated 3G/4G mobile broadband connectivity. In addition, it can be paired with professional-grade accessories to serve the needs of those working across sectors such as government and IT amongst other.

The Panasonic Toughbook is expected to hit stores in the fourth quarter of the year.
