Panasonic has launched today in Australia its new Android FZ-A1 Toughpad and to demonstrate how ‘tough’ it really is, flings it around and drops it repeatedly.

Panasonic said that the new tablet has a heat-treated hardened glass display designed to resist high impacts; and chip-embedded security to foil hackers.

Other features include an anti-glare low-reflection screen and high brightness LCD; high-precision multi-touch screen and stylus; a security processor in the chip to protect against hacking; fully-rugged design that can withstand with 1.2 metre drops and is sealed against dust and water spills; satellite-based GPS and optional embedded 3G mobile broadband; and 10-hours of battery life.

The Panasonic Toughpad will be available on the 15th November 2012, with prices starting from AU$1,499.

The tablet is ideal Australian field workers and business users who require access, anywhere, at any time, according to Deane Hornsby, Toughbook Group Manager, Panasonic Australia.

“The Toughpad delivers all of the flexibility of a tablet coupled with the quality and operational confidence that companies have come to expect from Panasonic,” says Hornsby.

“Many other tablets used in the workplace are prone to operational failure, which can cause thousands of dollars in downtime and repair. Panasonic has taken the approach of creating a device that lasts the distance, minimizing downtime, support and reducing inefficiency costs.”
