BERLIN — The Toughpad 4K, described as “the world’s first” 20-inch tablet with an Ultra HD (4K) resolution, was a standout among many items featured at Panasonic’s IFA booth on Sunday.
The tablet isn’t something you’d buy for your kids, though. Aimed more at businesses such as museums, it displays a crystal-clear 3,840 x 2,560 pixel resolution, and comes in a rugged, carbon-fiber case designed to withstand a lot of abuse.
In one of the demos set up by Panasonic, the Toughpad was in museum-ready mode, letting users zoom into a high-resolution image of an exhibit, as well as rotate it from all angles.
The Windows 8.1-powered tablet also supports Panasonic’s wireless Electronic Touch Pen, which Panasonic claims to be more accurate than your standard tablet pen.
And if you’re wondering what’s under the hood, the Toughpad’s specs are laptop-worthy: an Intel Core i5 vPro processor, 8 GB of memory, Nvidia GeForce graphics and 256 GB of storage.
The Panasonic Toughpad 4K will be available in Europe this November at a price of €4,500 (nearly $6,000).
