While every other tablet maker has been focused on cramming components into ever-shrinking casings, Panasonic has been hard at work applying the engineering tricks of their Toughbook laptop line to an even more portable device. The result is a newly announced Panasonic Toughbook Android Tablet. Specifics like pricing and what version of Android the device will run are unknown at this point, but we do know the device features a 10.1″ XGA multi-touch matte display, optional embedded 3G/4G mobile broadband connectivity, front/rear facing cameras, and ships with a stylus. Given the Toughbook branding and Panasonic’s goal of catering to “mission-critical mobile users”, you can also expect the casing to take plenty of physical abuse, and include security embedded at the hardware level. Panasonic says to expect the device sometime in Q4 this year. If we get our hands on one then, you’re all invited to game of tablet frisbee. Winner gets to hammer it.
