Posted by Courtney Howard

SECAUCUS, N.J., 15 Feb. 2010. Panasonic Computer Solutions Company, manufacturer of durable, reliable Panasonic Toughbookmobile computers, introduced the Panasonic Toughbook H1 Field, its latest rugged handheld tablet computer.

The new device enables extreme mobility and productivity for field sales personnel, first responders, supervisors, inspectors, maintenance workers, and other highly mobile professionals, says a representative.

Certified to meet IP65 and MIL-STD-810G with a six-foot drop rating, the Toughbook H1 Field offers durability in even the most demanding conditions. With optional SmartCard, RFID, and barcode readers, camera, GPS, and Qualcomm's new Gobi2000 mobile broadband technology, the device helps to maximize mobile worker productivity.

By leveraging Panasonic's advanced battery technology and a 1.86 GHz Intel Atom processor, the Toughbook H1 Field offers six hours of battery life, complemented by twin hot-swappable batteries that allow for limitless use, virtually eliminating down time and maximizing return on investment.

"As workforces become more mobile, it's critical to empower them with the right tools," says Kyp Walls, director of product management, Panasonic Computer Solutions Company. "The Toughbook H1 Field was designed based on extensive customer input to ensure it had the right mix of form factor, features and durability to maximize worker productivity and value. With so many features that exceed the performance capabilities of competitive products, we believe the Toughbook H1 Field is best positioned to meet the computing needs of highly mobile workers, along with their IT administrators."

The Panasonic Toughbook H1 Field includes a 500-nit, 10.4-inch dual-touch display that offers both tablet and touchscreen functionality. The display also includes a circular polarizer, plus anti-glare and anti-reflective screen treatments, making it easily viewable in direct sunlight. Weighing 3.4 lbs, this mobile computing platform features 2GB of RAM and a 64GB reinforced flex-connect solid-state drive.

The Toughbook H1 Field offers a range of embedded wireless connectivity options, including 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1, and Qualcomm's new Gobi2000 technology which simplifies complex multi-carrier wireless deployments for IT departments.

The Toughbook H1 Field includes multiple security features, including options for a contactless or insertable SmartCard reader and a fingerprint reader, helping to ensure that critical data is kept secure.
