20-Inch 4k Panasonic Toughpad 

Why you want a 20 inch tablet for ? Panasonic announced today that its massive Toughpad 4K Tablet will be available in the U.S. starting in January, and for just $6,000.

Before you contemplate replacing your iPad with this 20-inch monster, you should know that the Toughpad 4K is largely being targeted at the enterprise. An architect might use it to review blueprints, for example, while retailers could use it as an interactive display, or artists could work with a larger digital canvas.

“This is a full Windows 8.1 4K pen-enabled Tablet PC in the same price class as some 4K desktop displays,” Microsoft said in a blog post. “Imagine being able to watch 4K video footage a full resolution on a tablet with screen real estate to spare! Consider being able to see almost all of your DSLR image area at 100 percent magnification”. 

The oversized gadget is pen-enabled and sports a 3,840-by-2,560 display, or 4K, with a 15:10 aspect ratio and 230 pixels per inch. It weighs just over 5 pounds. There’s also a 1,280-by-720-pixel built-in front camera.

The Toughpad 4K runs an Intel Core i5 vPro processor and Nvidia GeForce GT 745M graphics. There’s 8GB of RAM and the option of a 128GB or 156GB SSD.
Panasonic said the device can survive a 2.5-foot drop from the bottom and a one-foot drop on the other sides. It includes USB 3.0 and SD card slots, headphone and speaker jack, and a docking connector.

Panasonic first showed off the Toughpad at this year’s CES, but it was just a proof of concept at the time. It made another appearance at the IFA trade show in Berlin, when the company tipped a November international release. Now, it’s arriving stateside.
