Panasonic’s Tough Tablet

We’ve all heard about Panasonic’s line of tough laptops. There was one which could withstand a tiger attack. Who could ever beat that? Well apparently, Panasonic has thought of something new: a tough tablet.

Not to be left behind by the hullaballoo that Apple is creating with the launch of the iPad, Panasonic has introduced their own tablet. Dubbed the H1 Field, this tablet is not your ordinary tablet. The specs are not that fabulous, to be honest. It is quite similar to a tablet that you would find many years ago. It runs on Windows 7 – downgradable to Windows XP if you wish – and has an Intel Processor (Atom Z540, clocked at 1.86 GHz). True, you wouldn’t find the Atom 5 years ago, but it’s still not that spectacular, don’t you think?

Perhaps the best thing that the H1 Field has going for it is the toughness aspect. First of all, it can survive a 6-foot-drop. I am pretty sure that no other tablet in the market today will survive that! It’s supposed to be in a sealed casing – I am not sure if that means it is water proof but I think it might be.

Having said all that, while I am pretty impressed with tough notebooks in general, I do not think I will ever be enticed to buy one. They say that the H1 Field will start shipping next month for a little more than $3,000. I say I’ll stick to the iPad if I wanted a tablet. Whatchathink?
