Tablets are kind of out of date right now. Companies have kind of just left that alone and concentrated on making bigger smartphones. But we see some tablets pop up in the market. Panasonic just launched a brand new tablet named the FZ-A2. The price is not really making it very easy to like but it has its reasons.
The Panasonic FZ-A2 has a 10.1 inch WUXGA IPS display with 1920×1200 pixel resolution. It runs on the Intel Atom x5-Z8550 Processor with Intel HD graphics 400 running Android 6.0 Marshmallow. You also get 4GB pf RAM and 32GB eMMC internal storage. On the back of the device is an 8MP camera with autofocus and LED light. On the front of the device is a 2MP Selfie shooter. It is IP65 Water and dust resistant and 120cm shock resistant. All of this is powered by a Lithium-Ion 2720mAh battery with up to 9 hours of battery life. It uses a USB Type C port to charge.
The Panasonic FZ-A2 will cost you about $2,189. The price tag is mainly because of its build quality and its outdoor usability. It was built to be used outdoors. But still I think it is a little too much. Cause you can get the core i5 Surface Pro 4 for around 1K less and that is a great tablet. So though there might be a market for this device I don’t people will be buying them for personal use. They will sell more in companies and Panasonic should be completely ok with that.
