    Panasonic Drops ‘Toughbook’ Android Tablet, Which Doesn’t Break

    Panasonic’s Toughbook line of products have long been known for their rugged exteriors and enterprise security. Today, the company announced a Toughbook Android tablet, which could very well be the world’s first rugged tablet device. Panasonic believes the tablet will appeal to a wide variety of users including “mission critical government personnel, highly mobile field forces, SMB’s looking for a competitive edge, security conscious IT managers and bottom-line focused CFOs.”




    The Toughbook tablet wont be the thinnest or prettiest tablet you’ll see. For that, there’s the good old iPad 2 and the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1. This rugged tablet is built to withstand harsh conditions in the field, such as construction sites or military deployment. It also comes with built-in enterprise-level security.

    It features a 10.1-inch XGA (1024 x 768) touchscreen display with a matte finish for easy viewing in daylight. It also comes with an active stylus, GPS, and optional 3G/4G connectivity. Other details and specs have not been disclosed yet, and its not certain which version of Android it will be running. However, the tablet is scheduled for a release during the fourth quarter of this year.

    I used to have a Toughbook CF-29. One of the best notebooks I've ever owned. Hella expensive at the time, but I guarantee I could pull it out of the closet, throw it in the pool, come back a few days later and pull it out and play solitaire.

    Yes, but did it protect your Mission Critical Adult Video Data?

    This looks awesome. Just don't ask about the price. :D

    We're actually using the Toughbook U1 where I work to conduct field inspections. Just got done deploying it to our field staff statewide and conducting training on it last Thursday. Then THIS gets announced! Dunno if our proprietary software will ever be modded to run on Android, but I can always dream!!

    Put in a memo to that effect. Offer to take whoever backs you out to see Green Lantern.

    That's just the kind of innovative thinking that will get you blacklisted in state government!

    Ah, but since I'm not an employee I can gift whomever I want whatever I want and just call myself a lobbyist. Just so long as it's not cash.
