Japanese electronics manufacturer Panasonic announced a new 7" Microsoft Windows 8.1-powered tablet aimed for enterprise users going mobile. The Toughpad FZ-M1 tablet is powered by an Intel Core i5-430Y 1.6GHz CPU, 4GB RAM, and 128GB SSD - and is fanless, with a screen supporting 1280x800 resolution, Bluetooth 4.0, Wi-Fi, 3G/4G LTE, USB 3.0, 5-megapixel rear camera - and is 18mm thin with a 540g weight. The Panasonic Toughpad FZ-M1 tablet will be available starting in February.

"The Toughpad FZ-M1 uses top class technology and premium manufacturing to create a powerful but still pocket size fanless 7" tablet perfectly designed for business workers in many different industrial-mobile environments," said Jan Kaempfer, Panasonic Computer Product Solutions European Marketing Head, in a press statement. "Whether it's helping provide rail passengers with ticketing and live train time information or the police force with a fast, simple and effective to use tablet while on foot or car patrol, this Toughpad is perfectly fit for purpose."


There is a high demand for enterprise-grade products - especially if the device is Windows powered and offers seamless 'bring your own device' ability - and that demand should only increase in 2014.
