Panasonic plans to launch a new version of its standard 20-inch Toughpad 4K tablet, running on Windows 8.1 sometime in July. It will contain some hardware improvements and a price tag of "just" $2,999, which is half the cost of the current $5,999 version.
The tablet will still have the same impressive 3840x2560 LCD display in a 15:10 aspect ratio, but it will also add an HDMI 2.0 input port for the first time, allowing users to hook it up to a wider range of devices and peripherals for use in jobs like video production and more. It will also have a fifth generation Intel Core i5 vPro processor inside; the previous version had the older fourth generation chip.
Panasonic will also sell an optional desktop cradle for the new Toughpad 4K tablet, which offers some more ports along with a stand that lets the tablet be used as a desktop PC.
