The big technology shift when it comes to displays this year is 4K-resolution and as you would imagine Samsung and LG are leading the way with their Ultra HD TVs. Panasonic don’t seem to have an answer to this South Korean onslaught in the TV market, but this has not stopped them from pursuing other avenues in which to promote this new revolution, and so has been showing off their new 4K 20-inch tablet.
As yet the Panasonic 4K tablet specs have not been finalized, but they have shared with us the proposed specs with the understanding that they could change from now until actual release. However, what we know for certain is that this tablet will come with a 20-inch 4K display and will run on Windows 8 Pro.
Even though those specs have yet to be finalized the 20-inch Panasonic 4K tablet did have a Intel i5 1.8GHz processor, 4GB or RAM, NVIDIA GeForce Graphics and 128GB SSD, which is the kind of hardware that we would expect from a device that runs desktop applications, unlike some other Windows 8 tablets like the Vizio 11.6-inch model. However, the biggest feature has to be that large display with its 15:10 aspect ratio and 3840 x 2560 resolution, and is said to be the lightest 20-inch tablet when it comes to the market.
This larger tablet will not be for everyone but we’re certain that those in the graphics business or photography would benefit from such a large tablet. In a recent hands-on with the device during CES 2013 it was said that there was no rear camera but it stands to reason why Panasonic would not include one, could you imagine holding one of these tablets up and trying to take picture?
The Panasonic 4K 20-inch tablet price and release date has yet to be announced, but we are sure that the company will want to get it to market in order to take advantage of the larger tablet market.
