The wait for the Panasonic Toughpad 4K Tablet is almost over! With units shipping in the US shortly, the world’s first 4K tablet is just about to take Tablets PCs to the next level. Here at CES 2014 Panasonic announced an exciting new member of the Toughpad 4K Tablet lineup called the “Toughpad 4K performance model”. This upgraded version of the Toughpad 4K Tablet will be available in Spring 2014. Panasonic had both the standard and performance models of the Toughpad 4K Tablet on display at CES this year.

You can download full specs for both of these tablets and compare features at the official Panasonic Toughpad 4K Tablet homepage.

While visiting the Panasonic booth at CES I had the opportunity to talk with Panasonic Director of Project Management Kyp Walls and got to learn more about both models of the new Toughpad 4K Tablet. In the video below you’ll get an overview of these exciting new record-setting Tablet PCs.

I’m looking forward to some hands-on time with these new Tablets. If you are interested to see these ground-breaking PCs in action, stay tuned here on the Extreme Windows Blog!
