Reviews for the Panasonic Toughpad JT-B1

84% Review Panasonic Toughpad JT-B1 Tablet | Notebookcheck
Sturdy. Panasonic presents a rugged 7-inch tablet. It can endure falls from 1.50 m (~4.9 feet) and hose water from all directions. The battery is replaceable. Can the inner components and the display convince in our tests?

That might have been enough to soften our opinion of the Panasonic Toughpad JT-B1 had the price not be so ridiculously high. We appreciate a lot of effort went into turning it into a super-tough tablet, ready for anything life can throw at it, but it's almost nine times the price of the Nook HD. Even the most affluent businesses may balk at the idea of paying that much.

7.0": This is one of the smallest formats, which is used for UMPC, Netbooks or Subotebooks. There hardly exist any models with this display format. Working for a long time is uncomfortable. This tiny display is intended for outdoor usage.
The advantage is, that the mini-notebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the tiny display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is very exhausting for the eyes. High resolutions can hardly be used. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.

0.549 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
