The largest mass-produced tablet in the world is presented by Panasonic. The 20-inch tablet with a 4K display will be called the Toughpad 4K. The new device will take its place in the professional lineup and will go on sale in early 2014.
The Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 will be powered by an Intel Core i5 vPro processor running Windows 8.1 Pro. The native screen resolution of the tablet will be 3840 x 2560 pixels, which equates to a density of 230 pixels per inch.
The two-kilogram tablet boasts 256GB of SSD storage, 8GB of RAM, and 2GB of video memory. It will also be equipped with a front-facing camera with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, built-in Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, memory card slot and USB 3.0 ports. With all this set, the battery will last only two hours, so you will have to keep the charger always ready.
Powered by an Intel vPro processor and Microsoft's cutting edge operating system, the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 enables professionals from a variety of industries to view, share and manage innovative information, reads the largest tablet's advertising slogan.
The Toughpad 4K supports 10-point multi-touch input mode and can be used in conjunction with the Panasonic Electronic Touch Pen. The device also boasts materials such as a fiberglass-reinforced housing and a magnesium alloy frame. This will allow him to painlessly survive a fall from a height of 80 cm.
Who needs such a huge tablet? For example, someone who has always wanted to have a collection of works of great painters. Panasonic UT-MB5 installed as a photo frame will compete with real canvas. Its use in medicine is also possible, at least for X-ray scanning or for demonstrating architectural visualizations - a 4K screen will allow you to see the smallest details.
As for the price of the largest serial tablet in the world, it is $ 5999. It seems that not every artist or even businessman will be able to do this. Let's hope that the final price will still fall to a more reasonable price. The appearance of the device on sale, according to the manufacturer's promise, will take place in early 2014.
