Back in June 2016, Panasonic announced a new rugged tablet called Toughpad FZ-A2 – slate that was supposed to go on sale just a month later for a $1357 price tag. Time passed and this slate didn’t show up on the market, but today you can buy it if you are in the US. Unfortunately, the price tag is almost 50% higher now compared to the price announced in summer.
Beside its rugged features, this tablet offers a great 10.1 inch IPS display with a 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution, an Intel Atom x5-Z8550 processor clocked at 1.44 GHz and Intel HD Graphics 400. There’s 4 GB of RAM memory, 32 GB space of internal storage and a microSD card slot.
A lot of connectivity options are available here: Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.2 LE, LTE (optional), USB Type-C 3.1, USB 3.1, HDMI out, flexible configuration port and business expansion module. Panasonic Toughpad FZ-A2 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Androi for Work on board, and gets priced at $2.189 for the Wi-Fi only base model.
