Panasonic yesterday unveiled its latest line of enterprise-grade tablet PCs.
The company said the Toughpad JT-B1 is a 7-inch Android-powered unit that follows the previous release of the 10-inch Toughpad FZ-A1 (Android), and the 10-inch Toughpad FZ-G1 (Windows 8 Pro).
Panasonic will be targeting various segments for the tablets including logistics, utilities, telecommunication, construction, healthcare and the military.
Satoshi Mizobata, director of Toughbook Asia Pacific group said, “The Toughpad JT-B1 is a great addition to our family of rugged tablets with its compact size, ergonomic design, high durability and advanced security features.”
To address security concerns, Panasonic said the new tablets incorporate security features embedded physically into the device and offer hardware and software encryption, IPsec VPN, root protection, trusted boot and device management.
The Toughpad JT-B1 offers as standard Bluetooth v4.0 + EDR (Class 2), 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, GPS, optional integrated 3G mobile broadband and NFC capability.
The Toughpad JT-B1 will be available in Singapore in August.
