20-inch 4K tablet Panasonic on Windows 8.1 will go on sale in January
Recently talking about 4K very much, and will continue to speak. And Panasonic is one of those companies that have been involved in this adventure – in just two months, the manufacturer will release its huge 4K tablet.
Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 will be offered for a «modest» $ 6,000. It is equipped with 20-inch IPS display, making it more of a monitor all-in-one than a pure tablet. This, however, does not prevent people from Panasonic to call it «the lightest and slim 20-inch tablet in the world». The display resolution is 3840×2560 pixels (230 ppi), and the target group of users include photographers, engineers and other professionals.
The name Toughpad (tough – hard) comes from the durable frame, which is made of magnesium alloy and reinforced glass fiber. The tablet can withstand drops from various heights and at different angles, which is quite possible – after all the tablet is very heavy (2.35 kg). It is not so easy to fit in a backpack, but in Panasonic believe that this tablet will be very useful in hospitals, museums, galleries, and at construction sites.
In addition to display with ultra-high resolution, users will get an Intel Core i5 which runs at a frequency of 1.9 GHz; graphics Professor NVIDIA GeForce 745M, SSD on 256 GB and 4 or 8 GB of RAM. The tablet features a USB 3.0 port, memory card slot and is running Windows 8.1 Pro.
One of the drawbacks that a certain will disappoint all users is the battery life. Unfortunately, in the presence of the tablet’s 20-inch 4K display makers had to pay not small price – on a single charge the device can hold only 2 hours. Although it was clear that mobility is not the strong side of this tablet.
