Is this really a tablet? This is one question that might be boggling your mind right now. You could have thought of a personal computer right at that very moment but this is indeed a tablet. With its size though, you do not want to carry this device wherever you are especially outdoors. Moreover, according to Panasonic, the target market are the professionals particularly photographers, architects and graphic designers. We will learn why it could be very helpful for professionals in just a moment once we cover the specifications of the tablet.
Let’s begin with our traditional way of reviewing a product through the exteriors. It has dimensions of 18.7 inches in height by 13.1 inches in width by 0.4 inches in depth. The 20 inch display of this tablet uses an IPS Alpha Panel that has a walloping 3840×2560 screen resolution that coined its name 4K which also means that it is four times the full HD resolution of 1920×1080 (1080p). It has an aspect ratio of 15:10 which is significant to photographers, graphic designers and architects especially in editing high resolution pictures. Included with it is a high resolution digital pen that’s called the Anoto Live pen, though it’s not that thin, it is light enough to use. Furthermore, Panasonic is supported by Adobe. Let’s say you want to edit a certain photo, the device will open a built-in Adobe Photoshop and will automatically allow you to use the digital pen hassle free to edit your work. This is the main catch why professionals should take this into consideration.
It has USB 2.0 support and micro SDXC slot. However, I personally would want to see a USB 3.0 slot instead, especially for professionals that would be dealing with high resolution pictures. USB 3.0 would be of great help mainly in transfer large files faster. It’s got standard WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. Has an embedded 720p HD (1280×720 pixels) camera, and while on battery mode, it runs approximately 2 hours.
Under the hood, this device is natively running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit edition to make full use of its 4GB RAM but is able to support up to 16GB no problem. It is powered by 1.8 GHz Intel Core i5 3427U vPro Processor, alongside NVIDIA GeForce Graphics to attain the clarity and vividness of the output. Although, the model of the graphics card has not been leaked yet, but we are expecting a decent graphics card from NVIDIA knowing what this tablet is built for. In terms of storage, it comes with 128GB of Solid State Drive out of the box.
