Panasonic Toughpad A1 Tablet Passed FCC Testing, Soon to be Released

We have heard rumors and confirmed reports last year (around November) that Panasonic was planning to release a tablet so tough to withstand water pressure and shock that most of the tablets in the market today. However, six months have already passed until we heard another report and apparently an announcement from the company that the Panasonic Toughpad A1 has already made its way through FCC and is going to be released soon.

We are hoping that since Panasonic stresses on the Toughpad A1′s water-proof capability that the summer time would be perfect for the release but it hasn’t confirmed any rumors or reports yet. In fact, the full specs were not officially provided yet only features. So, let’s try to tackle on features Panasonic provided and speculate on other specs not mentioned later.
Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich. It is reassuring to learn that Panasonic’s Toughpad A1 will operate on the latest version of Android operating system (OS) and not Honeycomb. There have been some speculations that Toughpad will feature the robust nature of Honeycomb considering that Panasonic’s soon-to-be-released slate leaves the impression of being ragged.
4G LTE Broadband Connectivity. In a bid to capture a chunk in the 4G LTE market, Panasonic makes Toughpad A1 LTE-capable which is as attractive as it can get. But it is in this feature that we will know that even if this tablet will be as tough as what you might say it is, it doesn’t have a chance to sport a quad-core (Nvidia Tegra 3 or Exynos 4 Quad) processor. If Panasonic wants this device to excel, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 is the perfect choice.
Embedded Hardware Security. This is one of the features Panasonic considers a selling point. Not every tablet in the market gets a dedicated core for security. Although we still have to see what Panasonic has in store for us in terms of security, we are very excited to know this device does not only come with a rugged design but also a feature that make your data safe.
Rugged MIL-STD-810G Design. This is one of the superficial features of this device. But believe me, its design actually leaves an impression that Toughpad A1 will be a robust, rugged and tough tablet. While there are no specs available to compare my statement, I believe Panasonic will use a special kind of glass to protect the display panel.
Business-class Service and Support. This isn’t the first device that Panasonic released targeting the corporate market. So we were actually expecting that the company will be offering business-class service and support for all its users.
Now, let’s try to speculate on the specs this device might come packed with. I’ve already mentioned earlier that there is a possibility that Panasonic will use Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 dual-core CPU, if it wants to give this device more muscles while being rugged, the fact is Panasonic said Toughpad A1 will feature 1.2GHz dual-core processor so that’s more like it. With 1GB RAM and 16GB internal memory, I think this device will be as competitive as the other tablets in the market. But there’s no mention whether or not it will have a microSD slot or any slot that would support higher capacity removable storage devices. There’s no information about the price and availability yet but stay tuned as we might overkill this device in this blog.
