Panasonic Japanese group has unveiled two mobile devices called Toughpad FZ-X1 and Toughpad FZ-E1 intended for professionals looking for a rugged unit.
On the occasion of the Mobile World Congress in Spain, the Panasonic Group has introduced two new rugged mobile devices baptized Toughpad FZ-X1 and Toughpad FZ-E1.
These two mobile devices share the same technical specifications, namely a quad-core processor supplied by Qualcomm, a 5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels, connectivity of 4G wireless/Wi-Fi AC/Bluetooth 4.0 and photo sensors of 8 and 1.3 megapixel. Note in passing that these characteristics may be slightly different from one market to another.
They also have in common certification of IP68/MIL-STD-810G that guarantees resistance when dropped, or at immersion or at extreme temperature, and a 6200 mAh battery for fast charging gives a comfortable autonomy.
The only thing that really differentiates them is the OS onboard (and hence the physical buttons on the front): Android 4.2.2 for the FZ-X1 will be available in late August and for FZ- E1 Windows 8 Embedded which will arrive in mid-June.
