Panasonic, a leading consumer electronics company, has announced the U.S. availability of the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 tablet, the world’s first 20” tablet with a 4K resolution display. The device is designed for professionals in fields where visual clarity and collaboration are essential to productivity, such as video production, architecture, design, photography and healthcare.

The rugged Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 is powered by an Intel Core i5-3437U vPro processor, Nvidia GeForce 745M graphics processor with 2GB memory, 256GB SSD, 8GB DDR3 RAM and so on. It features Windows 8.1 Pro and offers 4K (3840*2560) display that goes beyond Ultra HD resolution. With a 20” IPS alpha LCD screen featuring 230 pixels per inch, a 15:10 aspect ratio and wide viewing angles, the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 provides a lifelike viewing experience unlike any tablet on the market. Since the system is built on the Intel vPro platform, it includes unique hardware enhanced security features, remote manageability and capabilities designed to increase end user productivity and data protection. The device also features Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Bluetooth v4.0, USB 3.0, SDXC card slot, smart card reader, docking connector, built-in 720p webcam and so on. The tablet even includes a batter that lasts for 2 hours per MobileMark 2007 testing.

In addition to its 10-point multi-touch input, the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 comes with an optional Panasonic electronic touch pen, a unique new device offering pixel-level precision and a distinctly pen-and-paper-like feel for freehand sketching, annotation or handwriting. The pen uses infrared signals to distinctly read each pixel on the screen and communicates with the tablet via Bluetooth. For natural and highly accurate drawing or handwriting, the pen can be held from various angles and can interpret more than 2000 levels of pressure.

The Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 sports magnesium alloy frame enclosed in a reinforced glass fiber case, it provides business-rugged durability worthy of the Toughpad name. It is built to handle a 30” drop to its back while operating, and 12” drops to 26 angles when nonoperational.

“In our highly connected and visual world, having access to the best quality, most detailed visual information available can be a critical component of success in many fields. By delivering an unsurpassed level of image quality, running on an Intel vPro processor and using Microsoft’s most advanced operating system, the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 tablet allows decision makers in various visual fields to view, share, manage, and interpret information to drive their innovation,”  said Rance Poehler, president of Panasonic system communications company of North America.

The Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 will be available in January 2014 at a list price of $5999. All Toughpad tablets can be purchased through authorized Panasonic resellers. All products in the Toughpad family come standard with 3-year warranty.
