Panasonic Unveils 20-inch, 4K Resolution Toughpad Tablet In Big Hollywood Splash

Panasonic used the W Hotel in Hollywood, Calif., to highlight the media, design and luxury focus of its new Toughpad 4K UT-MB5.

The Toughpad 4K, which was initially introduced in January at CES, is heading for general availability in either December or January (there were conflicting reports of the official release date) with a list price of $5,999.

What does one get in a $6,000 tablet PC? A big and very sharp screen, for one. The Panasonic Toughpad 4K has a 20-inch LCD screen with a 3,840-x-2,560 pixel display. That resolution, dubbed "4K," and gradually finding its way into very high-end flat-screen displays, is in this device powered by an Intel Core i5-3437U vPro processor with Nvidia GeForce 745M GPU.

Also included is the Windows 8.1 Pro OS, 256 GB of SSD storage, 8 GB of memory and a 1,280-x-720 pixel camera. With all that, however, the device weighs only 5.3 pounds and has a 2-hour battery life.
