The Panasonic Toughbook has always been the gold standard for butterfingered executives, but the new CF-C1 actually offers up more than just rugged good looks, it’s actually a convertible tablet. The swivel around display boasts a resistive touchscreen which normally wouldn’t impress us, but the ability to register gloved input certainly gives it an edge over anything we’ve seen in the capacitive world.
By default the new Toughbook tablet sports a 2.4 GHz Core i5, your choice of spindle or SSD based storage, along with all the wireless connectivity options you would ever need including optional 3G. At $2,700 were are going to suggest that only the super clumsy need apply, but it’s always interesting to see what these guys come up with from an industrial design standpoint.
