Panasonic, an industry leader in mobile computing solutions that are purpose‐built for the way people work, has announced a major update to its popular and acclaimed Toughbook N1 rugged handheld device. The latest 4.7-inch device has been refined to meet the challenges of today's workplaces, with hardware and features designed to make capturing, sharing, and analyzing data faster and easier than ever.

"When workers turn to Toughbook devices we know that it's because they are tackling challenges where 'good enough' just does not cut it. We work closely with our customers to further enhance our product portfolio to make sure they stay ahead of the technology curve," said Brian Rowley, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management, Panasonic System Solutions Company of North America. "For our customers in the transportation and logistics space, we know that they are under pressure to be more efficient, more accurate and more cost-effective, and a few seconds can define what it means to stay competitive. The FZ-N1 takes a strong device and makes it stronger, empowering our users to capture more data, connect more reliably and work more efficiently."

The connected and powerful FZ-N1 is the mobile office in your pocket to get work done. And with a faster high-powered octa-core CPU and twice the storage capacity of the last generation FZ-N1, this rugged handheld computer is up to any task. An angled barcode scanner of this device means more efficient, faster scanning than ever before to meet the needs of even the most demanding environments.

Offering the Panasonic Toughbook ruggedness and durability, the new device includes enhanced MIL-STD-810G specifications, protecting it from drops of up to seven feet, along with IP66/IP68 ratings.

In addition to its advanced capabilities in warehouse settings and beyond, the FZ-N1 provides connectivity for today's first responders as well. As an early participant in AT&T's FirstNet dealer program, Panasonic is working to ensure that its devices – and in turn its customers – are equipped with the tools they need to access the nationwide public safety communications platform dedicated to America's first responders. Panasonic is working closely with its partners to ready the FZ-N1 device for FirstNet connectivity later this year.
