Tablets aren’t exactly known for durability. Indeed, dropping an iPad onto a
carpeted surface from a couple of feet can quickly kill it. Panasonic says it has your back with its Toughpad FZ-A1, a rugged, water-resistant Android tablet with
a 10.1-inch screen.
The Toughpad FZ-A1 starts at $1299, built to withstand
extreme temperatures, humidity, dust, sand, rain, high altitudes, and drops of up to 4 feet. As for specs, the FZ-A1 has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 16GB
of built-in storage (along with a MicroSD card slot for an additional 32GB), and 1GB of RAM. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which isn’t the latest OS, but at least it’s ready for use, misuse, and abuse.
