Panasonic unveiled its ToughPad FZ-G1 rugged tablet back at CES 2014 but it did not offer a keyboard dock with it. Now such an accessory has finally been unveiled by a third party, namely iKey, its fully rugged keyboard being known as FZ-G1 Jumpseat.

More than just helping professionals who work in risky environments to enter data easier and faster than before, the iKey FZ-G1 Jumpseat also protects the screen of its tablet companion. The snap-in-place keyboard consists of a full QWERTY rubber keypad with backlit keys protected by a strong magnesium case and it also features a trackpad with gesture recognition capabilities.

Just like the Panasonic ToughPad FZ-G1 it connects to, the iKey FZ-G1 Jumpseat is resistant to dust, dirt, and spills. The keyboard can last up to two months on a single charge and its Li-ion battery can easily be recharged via the tablet's USB port.

Unfortunately the price of the iKey FZ-G1 Jumpseat is still unknown, as this handy  accessory should become available later this month, when those interested will be able to purchase it directly from Panasonic.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
