The company's 20-inch Ultra HD tablet will be available for purchase early next year.
After demoing a prototype at the IFA trade show and announcing plans for the European market, Panasonic has officially revealed a US release date for its impressive 20-inch 4K tablet. The large-screen UHD device is being targeted toward professional artists, designers, architects, museums, healthcare workers, and other businesses. With a resolution of 3,840 x 2,560, the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 has about four times the pixels of a standard 1080p tablet.
The 20-inch IPS LCD Alpha Panel also boasts an aspect ratio of 15:10 with 230 ppi and approximately 16.77 million colors. The device will run Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit and is powered by an Intel Core i5-3437U vPro Processor, NVIDIA GeForce GT 745M Graphics, and 8GB of RAM.
A 720p camera is also embedded into the tablet along with an SD card slot and USB 3.0 inputs. In addition, a 256GB SSD flash memory storage drive is featured as well. The tablet's interface offers a 10-finger multi-touch panel and will make use of an optional Anoto Live high resolution digital pen.
The Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 will launch in the US in January 2014 for a suggested retail price of $5,999.
