Panasonic Toughpad A1 and B1 Officially Unveiled; Hardcore Toughness Video
If you are the kind of user that needs a tablet to work in virtually any environment and/or stand up to severe punishment, then Panasonic has just revealed something you will want to pay attention to. The above video shows off the truly awe inspiring durability of their newest "Tough-line" product, and it's an Android tablet. The new ToughPad A1 10-inch Honeycomb tablet and the new ToughPad B1 7-inch Honeycomb tablet don't have the fastest processors or very many fancy features, but if you need a tablet to operate in harsh conditions, or if you are just prone to breaking things, then this tablet could be perfect for you. Both of these tablets will be coming in 2012, and although the 7-inch B1 doesn't have a price yet, the 10-inch A1 will supposedly retail for a whopping $1299.99! Ouch...
Still, to get a professional grade harsh-environment friendly device that can even stand up to combat and security situations, that is probably an average price for entry. This could be the perfect tool for IT managers of corporations that have employees outside in harsh conditions, or the perfect toy for the rich guy that likes to go mountain climbing and still wants his daily fix of "Angry Birds." What do you guys think?
