Panasonic has introduced a 5-inch version of their ToughPad tablet (previously offered in 10- and 7-inch sizes). At 15-ounces and 1.2 inches thick, “tough” seems to be a major understatement.
The gadget can survive a 10-foot drop onto concrete, landing on its face. It’s also completely waterproof. Thanks to its special “rain mode,” the device’s touchscreen is usable during a storm, even with gloves. Plus, the tablet’s bulky shape allows for a larger battery that can last up to 14 hours.
It’s no surprise that the ToughPad is aimed at business and industrial markets, and intended for factories, highways, and other high-risk workspaces. Is the ToughPad for you?
