Panasonic Announces World’s First 20-Inch 4K Tablet

CEATIC 2013, which was last held this September; unveiled Panasonic’s 4K tablet also known as the Toughpad UT-MB5. The tablet was powered by Windows and offered a price tag of $5,999. The hiked price already makes the picture quite clear that it is certainly not something we would be able to see under our Christmas tress this fall, unless it is really something our job demands. In any case, whoever is willing to get their hands on the new tablet then let us inform you folks here that Panasonic has announced the expected sale of Toughpad UT-MB5 to start in January. We are anticipating that the tablet will mostly cater the market for professionals i.e. photographers and architects due to its large screen size and high resolution. As far as the durability is concerned, the “Toughpad” designation says it all.

For curious, who missed out on the coverage; the Panasonic Toughpad UT-MB5 will feature a 20 inch display with a 4K UHD resolution i.e. 3840 x 2560 pixels. It will run Windows 8.1 and will be powered by an Intel Core i5-3437U vPro processor clocked at 1.9GHz. The tablet will incorporate an internal storage of 256GB, 8GB of RAM, a USB 3.0 port, an SD card slot, and a smart card reader. The camera is definitely better than what you’d find on many similar tablets, offering 1280 x 720 resolution, present on the front of the device. As for the Battery: it is 2 hours per MobileMark 2007 testing while weighing only 5.27 lbs and 0.49 inch in thickness.
