Panasonic has rolled out the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-Y1 rugged tablet with a 20-inch display of 4K resolution for Rs 240000. The price is so high because the heavy duty device is targeted at marketing reps, broadcasters, architects and other such professionals. It is highly durable and comes fitted with specifications to match its asking amount.
Since the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-Y1 attempts to capture the niche market of tablets for fieldwork, it can withstand all kinds of situations including temperatures of -29 to 60 degree Celsius. It is also capable of surviving falls of up to 76 centimeters. For some reason, the company has chosen not to launch the cheaper version of this gadget in India.
The Toughpad FZ-Y1 appears to have all the ports one might possibly need in a mobile device of its kind. Panasonic claims it to be the world’s first tablet to feature a 3840 x 2560p 4K screen of 20 inches. The high resolution IPS display has an aspect ratio of 15:10 and is protected by scratch-resistant glass.
A fifth generation Intel Core i5-5300U vPro processor and 8GB of RAM power the Panasonic Toughpad. Windows 8.1 Pro Update runs the show here and there’s 256GB of SDD storage aboard. The tablet is not overly heavy at 2.4 kilograms, nor is it extremely bulky considering its dimensions of 475 x 334 x 12.5 millimeters.
