Today at CES, Panasonic introduced the latest member of its Toughpad family of rugged, enterprise-grade tablets. The Toughpad FZ-M1 is Panasonic’s thinnest and lightest rugged 7-inch fanless tablet with a 4th generation Intel Core i5 processor. Running Windows 8.1 Pro, the Toughpad FZ-M1 can be easily incorporated into enterprise and government environments. With a broad range of configuration options available, it can be customized to meet the unique needs of highly mobile professionals in various markets such as field services and sales, retail, supply chain and logistics and government.
At 1.2 lbs. and only 0.7” thin for the standard configuration, the Toughpad FZ-M1 is tested to meet MIL-STD-810G specifications for drops (up to 5 feet), shock, vibration, altitude, humidity and extreme temperatures, as well as IP65 standards for rain and dust. Panasonic also told us that the tablet has also been submitted for ANSI 12.12.1 certification (Class1, Div2) for use in incendiary environments.
