Panasonic launches 20-inch tablet at Gitex
Dubai, October 20, 2013
Panasonic, a leading consumer electronics and home appliances manufacturer, has unveiled the first 20-inch tablet with a 4K resolution display for the Middle East and Africa markets at Gitex 2013, which began today (October 20).
The Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 is the flagship product in Panasonic’s new ultra-high definition Toughpad range, said a statement.
It offers a new digital viewing experience called 4K, which is more than four times better than HD at 3840 x 2560 pixels. The tablet is a business rugged, portable tablet with collaborative working, touchscreen capabilities and an electronic touch pen for pin-point accuracy and annotation, it said.
The touch pen uses infrared signals to distinctly read every single pixel on the screen and communicates it with the tablet via bluetooth, making it stand apart from commonly found capacitive digitisers.
With its 15:10 aspect ratio, the tablet is the lightest and thinnest portable 20-inch screen tablet, weighing in at 2.35kg and 12.5mm thickness. It is powered by an Intel CoreTM i5 vProTM CPU, up to 8GB RAM and NVIDIA GeForce graphics.
The Toughpad comes pre-installed with Windows 8.1 Pro, allowing enterprises to use all their existing applications and office products and enabling IT departments to migrate with ease.
Combined with accessories such as the Panasonic desktop cradle and carry solution, the device can also be used as both a desktop PC and tablet, reducing the need for designers and engineers to use multiple devices.
It also offers necessary interfaces including a USB 3.0 port, SD card slot, headphone jack and optional smart card reader. The cradle also offers Ethernet and HDMI connectivity and features a 1280 x 720 pixel built-in front camera. - TradeArabia News Service
