Panasonic Releases 20-Inch Sized 4K Toughpad Tablet

When it comes down to it, a tablet is really just a laptop without a keyboard and a laptop is just an all-in-one PC with a battery. With that in mind, there is no reason why a tablet shouldn’t come in big sizes and with big power. Panasonic’s new Toughpad FZ-Y1 is both a large one and a powerful one that shouldn’t be discarded for going out of the norm.

The new Toughpad is designed for CAD designers among others and it is ready for one of the market-leading apps in this area, Solidworks. To back such a need, the Touchpad FZ-Y1 features a 5th generation Intel Core i7-5600U vPro processor with 2.6GHz base clock and a 3.2GHz Turbo. It is paired with an AMD FirePro M5100 graphics card and 16GB RAM. The storage space starts with a 256GB SSD and an optional 512GB upgrade is also available.

The display is a 20-inch IPS multi-touch that can recognize up to 10 fingers simultaneously and display 3840 x 2560 pixels. The 230 ppi and 15:10 aspect ratio should make the Toughpad tablet ideal for viewing and working with A3 size plans and designs. Touch isn’t always the most precise input and you can also get the optional Electronic Touch Pen that offers the ability to draw and make free-hand notes on the device with the freedom and creativity of pen and paper.

The Toughpad FZ-Y1 has plenty of connection options with USB 3.0, Gigabit LAN, HDMI 2.0 INPUT (support HDCP2.2), Mini DisplayPortTM Output and Docking connector. It naturally also features wireless connectivity through Bluetooth and WLAN and comes with a built-in HD Webcam, microphone, and speakers. The installed OS is Windows 10 that optionally can be downgraded to Windows 7 professional, allowing more people to integrate it into their current business infrastructure.

You might already have guessed that such a tablet won’t come cheap, and you are absolutely right here. The Panasonic Toughpad FZ-Y1 starts at £3180 without VAT and it will be available at the end of December this year.
