Panasonic Launches 20-inch 4K Windows Tablet for $5,999

It's been a long time since I heard a new product from Panasonic, to be honest I completely forgot about this tech company while Samsung and Apple were too busy racing in the smartphone and tablet market plus some other electronics players that are trying to get a share in the race. Today, Panasonic just made a surprise comeback with this huge and expensive Windows 8 tablet. Panasonic introduced  the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5.

The Panasonic Toughpad is a 20-inch tablet sporting a total 3840x2560 pixel resolution. Yes, it is a 4K tablet, first of its kind. But let me inform you that this particular Windows 8 tablet, unlike normal tablets we know, is not marketed for consumers but for professionals who are into video production, design, architecture, photography and many more. There's alot more this tablet can offer to those targeted market especially its software features. The Toughpad also comes with an optional electronic tough pen. If you are that kind of professional who can and willing to spend $6,000 on a gigantic tablet, then you are in for this. 

The giant 4K tablet will be powered by a 1.9Ghz Inter i5 processor with 8GB of RAM. There is also a 256GB of SSD storage. It also supports 3.0 USB and there is an SD card slot and smart card reader built-in. Though the high-end tablet has a 20-inch LCD display, it only weights 5.76lbs  and only .46-inch thick. Do not get excited yet, we have to be informed first that the Toughpad can only last up to 2 hours on a single charge. And that battery life is most likely because of the tab's thinness, most of the time it is the battery life that gets the sacrifice just to make the device slimmer and lighter. I'm pretty sure there would be power banks coming our ways too for this monster tablet.

Panasonic Toughpad comes in the US in January 2014.
