Panasonic brings Toughpad to New Zealand
Posted on 17-Dec-2012 15:05. | Tags Filed under: News.



The Panasonic Toughpad has landed and is set to revolutionise the face of tablet computing in New Zealand. The fully-rugged Android 4.0 powered device sets itself apart from the competition as a tablet built for business and ready to take on the harshest environments.

With the surge in companies utilising tablet devices, many have taken them beyond the capabilities and environments they were built for and suffered the consequences.

The arrival of the Panasonic Toughpad changes all that.

What makes the Toughpad unique is the rugged IP65 water and dust protection design, MIL-STD-810G 1.2 metre drop resistance, enhanced daylight viewable screen and up to 10 hour battery.

Combined with business features such as Bluetooth, Wi-Fi connectivity, and digitiser for sign-on glass applications.

In addition, the Toughpad offers advanced security and management features with dedicated FIPS security processor for enterprise-class encryption, device management that allows the tablet to be controlled and secured by a network administrator, along with secure docking and vehicle mounting options to further enhance business usability.

According to Comworth Panasonic Toughbook manager Darryn Smith, demand from industries like Forestry, Emergency services, Defence, Electricity, Logistics, Sales Field Force and Telecommunications is skyrocketing. “Many businesses have been constrained by existing consumer technology and the launch of the Toughpad has seen a steady rise in interest from all areas of the market”.

The Toughpad has been purpose-built for business and mobile workers ; it is secure and manageable, and as a fully-rugged device it is capable of operating in the most demanding of conditions, including rain, at sea, and in muddy or dusty environments.

“Tablets are great for any number of field applications, but tend to be fragile. Drop, sit on, wet or get dust into a consumer tablet and chances are it’s dead. The Toughpad can handle all that abuse and more without missing a beat. That’s what businesses and IT departments are demanding when workers depend on technology to get their jobs done.”
