Panasonic Toughpad

While Panasonic has given up on consumer smartphones, the Japanese company still makes gadgets for business clients. At the Mobile World Congress, a pair of new Panasonic Toughpad smartphones were on display. You can clearly see the difference on what is displayed on their 720p 5-inch screens: the FZ-X1 runs on Android 4.2.2, while the FZ-E1 has Windows Embedded 8 (pictured).

Both Toughpads are over one inch thick and designed to resist dust, accidental drops, and liquid. They have a modular design, wherein some components on the back can be unscrewed and swapped out. Like their larger, tablet-sized predecessors, both devices sport rubberized buttons, port flaps, and 8-megapixel rear-facing cameras.

The Panasonic Toughpad FZ-E1 features a 2.3GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor, while the FZ-X1 settles itself with the 1.7GHz Snapdragon S4.

Being entrepreneur-oriented, do not expect this new batch of Panasonic Toughpads to be available on retail stores and will cost around 130,000 yen ($1,300) when it officially launched later this year.. They are ideal for professionals who need a tougher mobile device such as construction workers and warehouse personnel.
