LAS VEGAS — I finally learned a bit more about the 4K Windows tablet that Panasonic unveiled during its morning keynote.
The tablet has a 20-inch diagonal touchscreen with 3840 by 2560 resolution.
It weighs 5.3 pounds and the case, with a brushed aluminum back, is 0.4 inches thick, 18.7 inches wide and 13.1 inches high. The prototypes running at the show have 128 gigabyte solid-state hard drives, but 256 gig units are likely when the device goes on sale in the second half of the year.
Pricing wasn’t disclosed but a Panasonic rep told me it will likely cost more than $1,500.
Target customers include architects and others using tablets for design work. Demos included two of the tablets running a CAD program with a stylus; annotations made by both users showed up instantly on both tablets.
During the keynote, Panasonic showed how a professional photographer may use the ultra sharp displays for editing in the field.
Inside, the tablets have Intel Core i5 processors and an Nvidia graphics card that drives the 4K resolution. The tablets run full Windows 8, not RT.
