Panasonic Australia announces the launch of the new JT-B1, a fully-rugged, pocket-sized, ultra-mobile Toughpad in its Android tablet range.
The lightest, fully-rugged mobile computer ever built by the company, Panasonic’s JT-B1 Toughpad is a 7-inch Android tablet that combines data and device security with seamless connectivity and enterprise-minded technology.
Designed to be more durable and rugged than consumer-grade tablets, Panasonic’s JT-B1 Toughpad offers professionals in the field a number of unique security, functionality and reliability features, including a 7-inch daylight-readable touch screen, sealed all-weather design, and a security processor to protect confidential data.
The lightweight design allows one-handed use, and fits in a coat pocket or on a belt. The JT-B1 gives mobile workers all the integrated features they require, as well as the convenience and mobility of a tablet computer.
According to Jason Lee, Toughbook Product Marketing Manager, Panasonic Australia, the JT-B1 has been developed in response to the needs of mobile workers in industries such as logistics and warehousing, hospitality, and retail merchandising. Key requirements for mobile workers include a tablet device that fits seamlessly into their workflow, and provides access to mission-critical data, anywhere, at any time.
He adds that Panasonic rugged computers are an industry benchmark when it comes to toughness and dependability. Combined with 3G broadband connectivity, the JT-B1 will offer customers quick access to applications and data to significantly improve field workers’ ability to make critical decisions, enhancing customer service, service delivery and response times.
The Toughpad JT-B1 will be available through authorised Panasonic Toughbook distributors and resellers from late September 2013.
