Panasonic Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 Tablet Debuts In The U.S.
The world's first 20-Inch 4K tablet with a 4K resolution display will be available in January 2014 at a list price of just (!) $6,000.
Panasonic announced the new tablet at a Hollywood event on
Thursday. Part of Panasonic's Toughpad line of
professional-grade tablets, the device is designed for
professionals in video production, architecture, design,
photography and healthcare fields.
The business-rugged Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 is powered by an Intel
Core i5 vPro processor, features Windows 8.1 Pro and offers a
3840x2560 pixel display. With a 20-inch IPS Alpha LCD screen
featuring 230 pixels per inch, a 15:10 aspect ratio and wide
viewing angles, the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 promises a lifelike
viewing experience. Moreover, since the system is built on the
Intel vPro platform, it bridges the gap between the needs of IT
professionals and workers by including hardware enhanced
security features and remote manageability.
In addition to its 10-point multi-touch input, the Toughpad 4K
UT-MB5 comes with an optional Panasonic Electronic Touch Pen, a
new device offering pixel-level precision for freehand
sketching, annotation or handwriting. The pen uses infrared
signals to distinctly read each pixel on the screen and
communicates with the tablet via Bluetooth. For natural drawing
or handwriting, the pen can be held from various angles and can
interpret more than 2,000 levels of pressure.
With a magnesium alloy frame enclosed in a reinforced glass
fiber case, the tablet provides increased durability. It can
handle a 30-inch drop to its back while operating, and 12-inch
drops to 26 angles when nonoperational.
