Video: Panasonic Introduces Indestructible "Toughpad" Tablets

Panasonic has expanded upon its Toughbook series of notebooks to now include tablets, appropriately dubbed “Toughpads.” The first two entries in the new line will be the 10-inch A1 and 7-inch B1 dropping early next year.

Unlike the Toughbook, the Toughpad hasn’t been made to resemble a construction-site toolbox and still looks like a tablet, despite its advertised ability to withstand any and all elements, from hurricanes to dust storms (just peep the video above). The unbreakable shell will reportedly house a 1.2 GHz dual-core Marvell processor,16GB HD, LTE or WiMAX connectivity, and a 10-hour user-replaceable battery.

Pricing starts at $1,299 for the larger A1 model—no word yet on the B1.
