Panasonic Toughpad UT-MB5 – 20-inch 4K HD tablet unveiled

Panasonic is somewhat of a small player in the smartphone and tablet market but is slowly building up its own niche of products. It recently unveiled the Panasonic Toughpad UT-MB5 tablet with a 4K resolution, a 20-inch display and a bombastic price tag of $6000.

While the tablet is clearly out of the reach of the average and is designed for professionals, it being a 4K tablet heralds good news. Also, at 20-inches, it seems more like a TV adapted for tablet usage rather than a tablet expanded to huge size. But, still raises hopes in our hearts that we will be seeing 4K tabs and smartphones pretty soon.


The device was unveiled at last year’s CES and seems like it will be hitting the market soon.
