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.

Only a few smartphones have larger screens.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

This is pretty heavy for a smartphone. Usually, small tablets weigh as much.

Panasonic: Panasonic Corporation, formerly known as Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd., is a multinational corporation based in Japan. Its main business is in electronics manufacturing and produces products under a variety of names including Panasonic and Technics. Since its founding in 1918, it grew to become the largest Japanese electronics producer. In addition to electronics, Panasonic offers non-electronic products and services such as home renovation services. Panasonic is an international notebook manufacturer, but with rather small market shares and few laptop reviews. Panasonic concentrates its notebook sortiment primarily to the niche of ruggedized notebooks, which are made for rough outdoor usage.

From 2013-2016, Panasonic has primarily offered tablets and, to a lesser extent, also smartphones. However, there are only few smartphone reviews.

69.67%: This rating is bad. Most notebooks are better rated. This is not a recommendation for purchase.
