The new tablet is powered by Intel’s 4th generation Intel Core i5 vPro processor and improved battery life of up to 10 hours of continuous use. A new, optional bridge battery gives users the ability to hot swap a battery without powering down the tablet.
Maintaining the key features of its rugged design, the FZ-G1 has many of the same features of the model it replaces, including a fully-rugged design certified to meet IP65 and MIL-STD-810G specifications for drops (up to 4 feet), shock, vibration, altitude, humidity and extreme temperatures.
Touchscreen enhancements include a daylight-readable display with 10-point gloved multitouch technology + digitizer that is operational even in wet conditions.
Even more security is available via an optional Opal-compliant, self-encrypting drive that will be available later this summer.
The Toughpad FZ-G1 has a list price of $2,599 and is available through authorized Panasonic resellers.
