Panasonic stretched its Toughpad tablet line with the debut of new 5-inch models that also sport phone capabilities.
Announced at this week's Mobile World Congress, the two devices feature a 5-inch HD display, quad-core processor and LTE capabilities. The FZ-E1 runs Windows Embedded Handheld 8, while the FZ-X1 is an Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) device.
Like other Toughpads, these latest devices are designed for rugged environments and will survive drops of up to 3 meters, or a drop underwater to a depth of 1.5 meters for up to 30 minutes.
Both tablets include 2GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, LTE connectivity, an 8-megapixel rear camera, and a swappable 6,200mAh battery.
