Although Panasonic has quite a few Toughpad slates in its portfolio already, the Japanese tech giant has just announced a new one. Dubbed FZ-A2, this 10.1-inch Android tablet is a rugged device that targets business customers who need a slate to use in showrooms, automotive workshops, and so on, since it was unveiled at the Panasonic Automotive Innovation Summit in Barcelona.

Panasonic Toughpad FZ-A2 is rated IP65 for protection from the elements and comes with the following highlights:

  • Processor: Intel Atom x5 Z8550 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 4 GB RAM; 32 GB eMMC internal storage and microSD support
  • Display: 10.1-inch 10-point multitouch with 1,920X1,080 pixels
  • Connectivity: USB 3.0 Type A, USB 3.0 Type C OTG, HDMI, WiFi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 4.2
  • Operating system: Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow

The list of optional capabilities is pretty long as usual, including a smartcard reader, 4G connectivity, a 2D barcode reader, and more. According to the official press release, the Toughpad FZ-A2 is driven by a user-removable battery that can provide up to nine hours of autonomy on a single charge.

Panasonic Toughpad FZ-A2 does not come cheap, as it is expected to hit the market in July starting at more than $1,300 USD.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
