Panasonic’s ruggedized tablet, the Toughpad A1 which was initially introduced back in November 2011 has finally gotten its turn with the FCC. The waterproof device which was teased in a very cool YouTube video clip is finally going to become a reality and we might see it in Radio Shack or Best Buy really soon.
An FCC filing recently came through for the rugged Android tablet which hints and imminent launch of the device of the U.S. Market. The device features a 10-inch touchscreen display with a 1024×768 pixel resolution, it is powered by a Marvell 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of internal storage capability, 1GB of RAM, a 5-Megapixel rear-facing camera, a 2-Megapixel front-facing and a 4590mAh battery that should provide the device with a reasonable operational from a single charge.
The FCC documents doesn’t seem to offer anymore details about the Touchpad, but take a look for yourself you might see something that we missed. What we already know is that the Toughpad A1 is supposed to come with IP65 certification which means it’s waterproof, dustproof, shockproof and temperature proof which makes in an ideal tablet for workers in the outdoors or adventurous users. The device is a little bulky with a 0.67-inch thickness and weighs in at 966 grams but i’m guessing that’s what makes it so durable.
The Toughpad A1 is also supposed to come with a smaller sibling that features a 7-inch display namely the B1 Toughpad but there’s no information available just yet. Check out a video with the Toughpad A1 below…
