The company said it plans to deliver an "enterprise-grade" Android tablet to the market in the fourth quarter of this year. The new device will be aimed at a variety of users, including government personnel, mobile field forces, small to medium-sized businesses, information-technology managers and chief financial officers. The new tablet will feature a daylight-viewable screen and active stylus, allowing for the capture of signatures on a 10.1-inch XGA multi-touch display. Other features planned for the new model include satellite-based location technology, full-shift battery life, professional-grade accessories and optional embedded 3G/4G mobile broadband capability. Panasonic also announced upgrades to two existing Toughbook models. The newest Toughbook 19 convertible notebook features a standard voltage processor, increased RAM and hard-drive capacity, and a sunlight-viewable screen.
