Windows 8 tablet

A prototype Windows 8 tablet with a twenty-inch display from Panasonic made an impact during a press conference for the CES 2013. However, the company did not stop at this huge tablet running on the Windows 8 OS. The company has given indications that it will unveil a Windows 8 tablet based on the rugged Toughbook mobile computers, according to a recent report.

The Panasonic FZ-G1 will be the latest addition to its Toughbook line of products. The new Toughbook entry is designed to withstand abuse and is aimed mainly for business and military use. The tablet will feature a ten-inch display screen and weighs 2.43 pounds. This Windows 8 tablet is designed to survive drops of around four feet aside from being water and dust resistant. An image of the Panasonic Toughbook tablet was posted on Twitter by Microsoft getting wet at the CES.

The touch screen of this Windows 8 tablet from Panasonic can also be viewed without any problems in daylight. It also has a stylus that offers added precision when it is used. The tablet features a Core i5-3437U vPro processor from Intel and can be fitted with a 128GB or a 256GB SSD. It also has the capability of supporting RAM of up to 8GB. The battery of this Windows 8 tablet can last for around eight hours and it can be replaced by the user of the tablet.

The upcoming Panasonic Toughbook FZ-G1 tablet will reportedly be ready by March. However, its price tag may be more than what a number of people can afford at $2,900.
