Panasonic Toughbook FZ-Y1 is a 20-inch reinforced giant who survive a fall from a height of 76 cm. Do you still deserves to be called a tablet?
In the world of tablets increasingly difficult for news. Many devices were transformed on hybrids. The field of possibilities still remain issues of adaptation of tablets to work in non-standard conditions in which it is best suited to a specially reinforced equipment. On the other hand, we have a big, touch-sensitive displays designed for the needs of employees television or other media. Panasonic came out a year ago with unusual assumptions and decided to combine these issues. It unveiled a device called the Panasonic Toughbook FZ-Y1. The company boasts that he is the only one in the world is a manufacturer who made this combination. Toughpad FZ-Y1 has a 4K display and weighs 2.41 kg. It has supposedly come out unscathed after falling from a height of 76 cm. Here there is a small catch – must fall on the back wall. Increased strength and a 20-inch display for a price almost 15 thousand is very impressive. On a broader device specification announced Paul already at the end of July 2015. Currently, the sale has been extended to other markets, so this is the ideal time to find an answer to the title question. Looking at the definition of the tablet is a portable computer, the size of which are larger than a smartphone. At the same time it has a screen with Multi Touch technology. So general information're told to believe that the Panasonic equipment falls into that definition. However, the 20-inch display, the issue of mobility is becoming a dispute. O how great mobility we talking about? Is the 17-inch laptop, which has a broken battery and within the framework of action needs to be constantly connected to the outlet may also be called a mobile? Perhaps speech is then only with limited mobility? These disputes, which, depending on the approach may fall within the definition chosen, bending it or go beyond itself. Accordingly, although the Panasonic Toughbook FZ-Y1 is the definition of a tablet, it's hard for me to think of it that way. In my opinion the tablet is a device much more convenient, located in the bag and allow to easily move. 20-inch equipment weighing nearly 2.5 kg certainly reluctant fits into this concept. For me Toughbook FZ-Y1 and any other kind of "tablet" with a similar structure to computers All-In-One. Infrequency of occurrence of such equipment makes it easier for the majority of manufacturers to drop equipment to the category of tablets just because you lacked with them, the mouse and keyboard. And what is your opinion? Source: PR Wire
