Panasonic Introduces Toughbook C1 Convertible Tablet PC

March 02, 2010  | 

Real World Durability

In order to withstand the demands of a highly mobile work environment, The Toughbook C1 has been designed to endure drops, bumps, and spills. The Toughbook C1 successfully survived drops of 12 inches from any angle for the unit itself and from 30 inches for the shock-mounted, flex-connect hard drive.  Additionally, the Toughbook C1 survived a 30-inch (just over the typical height of a desk or table) drop to the base of the unit while operating.  The unique Panasonic spill-resistant keyboard design protects against liquid spills of about six ounces (200 cc), and both the lid and base of the notebook are designed to withstand more than 225 pounds (102 Kg) of pressure. In addition, Panasonic's commitment to quality-at both the component and finished goods level-results in a total of more than 500 checks and tests during and after production.

"An exceptional level of engineering has gone into the Toughbook C1," said Kyp Walls, director of product management, Panasonic Computer Solutions Company. "The unique triple hinge design, "hand-free" ergonomic strap, twin hot-swappable battery system, and quick-release HDD Pack exemplify our commitment to go beyond 'good-enough' and delivering products that map to how our customers use them.  The Toughbook C1 sets the standard for what an enterprise convertible tablet should be."

Embedded Wireless Connectivity

The Toughbook C1 offers a variety of embedded wireless technologies, including Wi-Fi 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 and optional Gobi2000 mobile broadband technology from Qualcomm. Gobi simplifies complex multi-carrier wireless deployments for IT departments and allows mobile employees improved connectivity options while traveling at home or abroad. The Toughbook C1 is also designed so Wi-Fi, WiMAX and 3G mobile broadband modules can be embedded in the same unit, while allowing exceptional reception and flexibility for data access on the go. The Toughbook C1 will be certified on the Sprint and Verizon Wireless networks, allowing workers to stay connected at all times. Other wireless carrier certifications will be announced soon.

Integrated Features

To enable advanced communication and collaboration, the Toughbook C1 offers integrated features, such as an optional modem or a webcam for mobile video conferencing and a standard built-in dual array microphone for superior speech recognition. Multiple security features are also available, including options for SmartCard and fingerprint readers, to ensure sensitive data is kept secure and private.

Pricing and Availability

The Panasonic Toughbook C1 will be available worldwide starting June 2010. In the U.S., the Toughbook C1 is expected to be available at an estimated street price of $2,499 from authorized Panasonic resellers and distributors.

The Toughbook C1 includes a standard three-year limited warranty.
