Gavin Gear of the Extreme Windows Blog went hands on – and off – with the recently announced 7-inch Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 tablet with Windows 8.1 Pro at the Consumer Electronics Show. The 1.2-pound tablet easily survived being dropped by Gear. But that’s just part of the tablet’s DNA, says Panasonic’s Dan Diliberti.
The tablet is the smallest in Panasonic’s well-known Toughpad line, and with its small size, Diliberti says in the video above that it offers “the power of a PC in the palm of your hand.” It can transition from a rough environment – such as a field worker using it in “driving rainstorms” to being dropped “into a desktop to become a desktop replacement” because it’s got Windows 8.1 Pro and the power of an Intel Core i5 vPro processor, Diliberti says.
The Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 tablet will start shipping in February, with pricing starting at $2,099. Check out the official product page here, and to read Gear’s full post about his hands-on experience, head over to the Extreme Windows Blog.
