Unsurprisingly given that it's a rugged device, the Panasonic is not the most svelte or lightest tablet on the market, measuring up at 270mm x 188mm x 19mm thick. It weighs 1.1kg, and feels even heavier if you're holding it in one hand while operating it with the other.
In order to make it water-resistant, Panasonic added a sealed fan system that maintains protection against the rest of the internals. (Its other Android tablets are all fanless.)
Other key specs of the device include a 128GB SSD, 1.9GHz Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of RAM (expandable to 8GB) and a forward-facing 1.3-megapixel camera. Potential buyers can also specify a 3-megapixel camera with autofocus and LED flash for an additional cost.
It also comes with a stylus (shown in previous photo) to make field workers' lives a little easier. Judging from my experience with the tablet, they'll be using it.
