Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 rugged convertible coming to the US later this month
Yesterday, Panasonic announced the imminent arrival of the Toughbook CF-33 rugged Windows 10 convertible tablet in the US. This portable has a design that meets the IP65 and MIL-STD-810G standards and uses 7th generation Intel Core i5 and Core i7 processors.
Panasonic Toughbook CF-33 is a highly versatile machine, coming with twin hot-swappable batteries that can provide up to 20 hours of autonomy (10 hours battery life is standard) in the Long Life Battery configuration. The convertible design allows for six different usage modes. The list of hardware options is pretty long, including a 256 GB or 512 GB SSD with heater, 8 GB or 16 GB RAM, Barcode/Serial/Insertable SmartCard/Contactless Smartcard/Fingerprint reader, a standard 12-inch QHD display, a full HD webcam and 8 MP camera on the back, two different vehicle docks for new deployments, and more.
According to Microsoft's Windows Experience Blog, the Toughbook CF-33 can be purchased as a tablet only, or next to the detachable Premium Keyboard. Authorized Panasonic resellers should have it in stock by the end of the month, the prices starting around $3,649 USD.
