Panasonic Announces Its First Toughbook-Branded Android Tablet




Panasonic recently announced what it is calling the first "Enterprise Ready" tablet geared towards commercial and government users looking to take their tablet with them into the field. 

This will be the first Android device offered by the company bearing the Toughbook name, a brand known for its durability and business focused features:
  • A 10.1" 1024x786 matte-finish display that is "daylight viewable"
  • An (included) "Active Stylus" for capturing signatures
  • Security embedded at the "hardware level"
  • "Full shift" battery life
  • GPS capability
  • Wifi with optional embedded 3G/4G connectivity
  • Durable construction consistent with other Toughbook-brand device
One of the press shots shows the tablet running a version of Android 2.x, which sounds about right. Processor, RAM, and storage aren't known yet, but as this is an enterprise-class device and not a consumer model, don't expect this thing to set any benchmark records.  Panasonic's Toughbook line is known for their durability and business-friendly features, not bleeding edge tech.  Still, it's exciting to see Android move into the business sector, and it's a good sign that our little green robot is starting to grow up.  Pricing and Availability are not yet available.
The press picture showing this running Android 2.x is located after the break.
