Panasonic Shows off Durable, But Expensive Toughpad FZ-G1 Windows 8 Pro Tablet

by Shane McGlaun

Panasonic has pulled the covers off a couple new tablets that fall in the company’s rugged Toughpad line. The most interesting, and expensive of these new tablets is the ToughPad FZ-G1. The tablet has a 10.1-inch screen and runs Windows 8 Pro.


The super-sharp screen sports a full HD 1920 x 1200 resolution, and is designed to be readable in sunlight. The tablet has a third-generation Intel Core i5-3437U vPro CPU operating at up to 2.9 GHz. The tablet has storage options up to 256 GB and can be fitted with up to 8 GB of RAM.

The ToughPad FX-G1 is aimed at industrial users and is ruggedized to military specifications with the ability to survive drops from up to 4 feet. The battery is user-replaceable and promises eight hours of use per charge. The tablet has integrated Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, optional 3G or 4G LTE broadband, USB 3.0, HDMI out, a wired Ethernet port, and an optional microSDxC memory card slot. While that all sounds great, the biggest problem with this tablet is going to be price. When it ships this March it will start at $2899(USD).
