Toughbook S1 Is Panasonic's First-class Android Tablet with Warm-swappable Battery
Panasonic is a well-known electronics manufacturer from Japan, especially for the needs of lay consumers and businesses. In Kenya, Panasonic home appliances and digital camera products are widely known.
Recently Panasonic has introduced the Toughbook S1. A 7-inch Android tablet with a rigid body aimed at corporate users is a genuinely mobile field worker for €1,110 or about 146,721.92 Kenyan Shilling.
For detailed specifications, the Toughbook S1 features a 7-inch IPS panel supported by a resolution of 1280×800 pixels, with a maximum brightness of up to 500 nits, and is equipped with anti-reflection technology. The screen can be amputated even if the user is wearing gloves and has a special rain mode to be used even in wet conditions.
Thanks to the not-so-large screen, the tablet is compact enough to weigh 426 grams so that you can use it conveniently with one hand. The body is dust and water-resistant with IP67/IPX5 certification and has passed the US military standard endurance test (MIL-STD 810H). Toughbook S1 is also claimed to survive when falling into concrete from a height of 5 meters and can operate in extreme temperatures between -20ºC and up to 50ºC.
Panasonic says that the Toughbook S1 can use accessories provided for other challenging tablet models, namely the Toughbook L1 and A3, such as batteries, cradles, docks, and styluses to retrieve signatures or complete reports/forms. You can also pair the tablet with optional gadget ports such as barcode scanners and additional full-size USB ports.
For its operating system, the Toughbook S1 runs Android 10, and its race kitchen relies on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset, combined with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of internal storage. Toughbook S1 is equipped with Panasonic COMPASS's suite of Enterprise Management tools for ease of management and administration. The battery is warm-swappable, Panasonic provides two capacities, and the largest can last up to 14 hours.
