CES 2013: Panasonic Reveals 20-inch Windows 8 Tablet With 4K Resolution
Panasonic is making it big this year at the International CES.
Per reports, Panasonic has unveiled a brand new 20-inch Windows 8-based tablet that, apparently, comes with a 4K resolution.
The company showed off the massive new Windows 8 tablet that sports a 20-inch UHD screen. The new tablet is primarily a business product for photographers, engineers, architects, and other users who could use a very large, very high-resolution touch screen in their field of expertise.
Nothing much is known about the device entirely, but it was stated that the tablet's screen has a resolution of 3,840 x 2,560 pixels, and this on a 20-inch tablet means impressive pixel density. For the sake of comparison, the 15-inch MacBook Pro with Retina Display has only 2,880 x 1,800 pixels.
Moreover, the tablet also has a stylus input support and a sort of real-time cloud-based collaboration tool. Apart from this, nothing really has been known about the tablet. However, a 20-inch tablet with the 4K resolution does sound like a big deal, and is enough to attract potential customers.
Panasonic made the new revelation following the announcement of a 56-inch UHD television with an OLED panel, developed using electronic printing technology.
This new UHD TV is one of the first UHD screens to use an OLED panel which the company says makes the process of placing OLED elements on a panel comparatively inexpensive and reliable. PCMag states: "The process uses a 'print head' that applies individual red, green, and blue materials to the panel sub-layer. The screen has a resolution of 3,840 by 2,160 pixels, four times the resolution of 1080p, and is just half-an-inch thick and weighs only 27 pounds."
Panasonic also unveiled the Toughpad FZ-G1 at this year's CES. The device runs on Windows 8 Pro, and under the hood, it has a third generation Intel Core i5-3437U vPro clocked at 1.9GHz up to 2.9GHz with Intel Turbo Boost Technology. It also has a 128-256GB SSD, 4 to 8GB RAM, and optional micro SDXC.
The display on the device is impressive 10.1-inches and Panasonic claims that it is sunlight viewable. The display on it is WUXGA with a 1920x1200 resolution and is expected to last for eight hours.
The battery is replaceable, and other specifications include Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, optional embedded 4G LTE or 3G I/O. It also has a full size USB 3.0, HDMI, full size USB 2.0 and wired LAN.
