The tablet market is already crowded with many tablets from big and small manufacturers around the globe. But companies are churning out more and more devices. Now, there’s a new device from Panasonic. The company’s new ToughPad is a rugged tablet and it can survive tough weather conditions and environments.

And it’s no surprise that Panasonic has come out with the rugged tablets, 7 inch and 10 inch ones, since the company’s ToughBook line-up of ultra rugged laptops is already popular.

The 10 inch ToughPad A1, which will be available later in 2012, comes equipped with a 1.2 GHz Dual-Core Processor and runs the Android 3.2 Honeycomb operating system.


The ToughPad A1 features a high brightness, 10.1 XGA capacitive multi-touch screen which is daylight-viewable.

It also comes with 1GB LP-DDR2 RAM, a 5 megapixel rear camera, a 2 MP front camera, Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, and optional 4G (LTE or Wimax) and GPS. Ports include Micro-USB, microSDHC, and micro HDMI.

The tablet is certified for a drop from a height of 4 ft, a temperature rating of 14F to 122F and it has ingress protection ratings for water and dust resistance. It has been claimed to come with a battery life of 10 hours.

The tablet, which weighs in at 2.13 lbs, also offers hardware and software encryption, enhanced VPN, dual factor authentication and more. The starting price of the device is $1299. Head here to know more about it and don’t forget to place your comments below after checking out the video.
