Device maintains convertible tablet functionality

Panasonic on Monday introduced the fourth revision of its Toughbook CF-19 convertible tablet notebook. The latest version now utilizes Intel's ultra-low voltage (ULV) Core i5 540UM CPU for a 32 percent increase in performance and nine-hour battery life. Businesses can also take advantage Gobi 2000 components for mobile broadband configuration across several different carriers, while A-GPS integration can be used with mapping software.

The CF-19 uses circular polarization technology to help reduce back-reflected glare on the LCD, which also features 1,000-nit brightness for use in direct sunlight. The 10.4-inch XGA touchscreen is floating mounted to help protect against shock. The rest of the device is also ruggedized to MIL STD 810G standards for protection against water, dust, impact, vibration and temperature fluctuations.

Customers can purchase the computer with Windows 7 Professional, while XP Tablet Edition and XP Professional downgrades are also available. The CF-19 Mark 4 is available with a variety of hard drive options and RAM capacities, with the base model priced at 2655 (~$3,832 USD) excluding VAT.
