New Panasonic Toughpad Features Windows 8 Pro

Panasonic today expanded its Toughpad line of enterprise-grade tablets with the introduction of the Toughpad FZ-G1, a 10-inch tablet featuring Windows 8 Pro, and the availability of the Toughpad JT-B1, a 7-inch Android-powered unit. Both devices follow the original 10-inch Android-powered Toughpad FZ-A1 which became broadly available late last year. With the Toughpad family of ruggedized tablets, businesses and government institutions have a single partner delivering a selection of highly reliable and purpose-built devices ideal for numerous operational needs.

According to Hide Harada, Panasonic’s IT Products Business Unit director, the Toughbook is expected to contribute to the company’s goal to “achieve a 50 percent market share in the ruggedized tablet space by 2015.”

Toughpad tablets are designed for mission-critical and highly mobile workers in fields such as the military, construction, healthcare, public safety, utilities, retail, maintenance, supply chain logistics and insurance. The devices are ideal for a host of usage scenarios, including inventory control, eForms, field sales, field service, route delivery, eCitations, electronic medical records, inspections, mobile point-of-sales and GIS.
 
Toughpad tablets are MIL-STD-810G tested for drops, fluid ingress and temperature, to assure they deliver reliable performance under circumstances that render typical tablets non-operational. Devices feature daylight viewable screens, user-replaceable or serviceable batteries, a stylus for signature capture and handwriting (on the FZ-G1 and FZ-A1 with 3rd party apps), and multiple options for peripheral connectivity.

The 10-inch Windows 8 Pro-based Toughpad FZ-G1 will be available in March starting at $2,899. The 7-inch Android-powered Toughpad JT-B1 will ship in February starting at $1,199.

The 10-inch Android-powered Toughpad FZ-A1 is now shipping, starting at $1,299; all Toughpad tablets can be purchased through authorized Panasonic resellers.
