Panasonic CF-H1 gets 1.86GHz Atom, 64GB SSD, more

Panasonic on Wednesday introduced its ToughBook-branded CF-H1 Mobile Assistant PC meant for use by workers in the field. The rugged device has a 10.4-inch, anti-reflective touchscreen that's viewable in daylight and has a resolution of 1024x768. Processing power is netbook-like and comes from a 1.86GHz Intel Atom and 2GB of RAM, while files are stored on a 64GB solid state drive. Windows 7 is preloaded and allows for two-point multi-touch.

The SSD helps to keep the files protected during rough use, while MIL certification and IP65 compliance make it resistant to vibration, humidity, altitude, temperature, water, dust and thermal shock extremes. A carrying handle is built-in, and the CF-H1 weighs 3.4lbs. The dual 2,900mAh lithium-ion battery packs endow the device with a claimed six-hour life. They are also hot-swappable so there is no need to interrupt work to add in a fresh charge.

Other tech specs include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, a fingerprint reader and a 2-megapixel camera with dual LED flashes. A barcode reader rounds out the standard features, while a GPS sensor is optional, as are contactless or contact smartcard readers.

Despite the introduction, Panasonic has not revealed a launch date or pricing for the CF-H1 Mobile Assistant.
