New tablet unveiled at Hollywood, CA event

Panasonic tonight at a Hollywood event announced the US availability of the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 tablet, the world's first 20-inch tablet with a 4K resolution display. Part of Panasonic's Toughpad line of professional-grade tablets, the device is designed for professionals in fields where visual clarity and collaboration are essential to productivity, such as video production, architecture, design, photography and healthcare. The tablet is built to handle a 30-inch drop to its back while operating, and 12-inch drops to 26 angles when nonoperational.

The business-rugged Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 is powered by an Intel Core i5 vPro processor, features Windows 8.1 Pro and offers a 3840x2560 pixel display that goes beyond Ultra HD resolution. The device features a 20-inch IPS Alpha LCD screen featuring 230 pixels per inch, a 15:10 aspect ratio, wide viewing angles, and 10-point touch.

The Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 will be available in January 2014 at a list price of $5,999. All Toughpad tablets can be purchased through authorized Panasonic resellers.
