Panasonic launches state of the art high-end tablet

Panasonic has become the world’s first company to offer a tablet with a 4K, ultra-high-resolution display at a price tag of US$ 6,000.

The Panasonic Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 features a 20-inch crystal clear screen which supports stylus input and can recognize 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity, perfect for free hand sketching and illustration effects.

This is a serious tablet with a serious processor — a next-generation Intel Haswell no less — and it comes with the full pro edition of Windows 8.1 installed, meaning it’s just as powerful as a notebook.

As for design, Panasonic has gone for a magnesium alloy chassis for its combination of strength and lightness, and it can survive a 2.5-foot (75cm) drop.

Inside, keeping the Intel processor company is 8GB of RAM and a 256GB solid state drive. It even comes with a carrying case although at 47.5 x 33cm (18.7 x 13.1 inches) it might be difficult to whip it out on the train.

Launch date in the U.S. – mid January 2014
