Panasonic outs rugged Toughpad tablets, goes where other tablets fear to tread


Panasonic has made a name of themselves for making insanely tough, ruggedized notebooks and it makes sense that they’d want to bring that particular brand of near-indestructibility to tablets. Their new Toughpad line of tablets, the A1 and B1, brings familiar Honeycomb sensibilities in ruggedized 10.1- and 7-inch flavors respectively. Both devices are certified MIL-STD-810G, which basically means they’ve gone through the same rigorous testing that most devices used by the DoD (Department of Defense) go through. Inside, you’ll find a dual core processor – 1.2 GHz with embedded hardware security powering everything, and about 16GB of storage on tap, which can be increased through the use of microSD cards. Engadget says that the A1 will have a hefty $1,299 SRP, which means it’ll retail for Php 58,000 (give or take). At those prices some of you might just consider placing your tablets in Ziploc bags instead.
