Panasonic India introduced a new Android 10 tablet on Monday, priced at Rs 98,000. The ‘Toughbook S1-7.0′ has two battery capacities and can operate for up to 14 hours on a single charge, the company claims. Unique screen innovations, such as a trademarked rain mode, enable firms improve employee efficiency and optimize corporate processes.
The laptop helps security, police, technicians monitoring manufacturing lines, field service engineers inspecting and maintaining equipment, or construction workers on the job. According to Panasonic India’s System Solutions Director Vijay Wadhawan, the Toughbook business grew 10% year-on-year with demand coming mostly from the pharmaceutical, automotive, defense, and government sectors. The tablet is said to be shock-proof (minimum 1.5 metres) and temperature-adaptive.
“With approximately 60% market share, Panasonic rugged devices are in high demand across manufacturing, emergency services, car, pharmaceutical, logistics, power, and utility sectors,” said Hiroaki Yamamoto, Divisional Managing Director, System Solutions Division, Panasonic India. The S1 has GPS, field cameras, barcode scanners, NFC, and Bluetooth built-in.
