Panasonic has announced that it has updated one of its rugged convertible notebook computers. The machine is the Panasonic Toughbook CF-C2 semi-rugged convertible tablet PC. The machine has an attached keyboard and a screen that swivels to be used as a tablet.
Back in March, news surfaced that Panasonic would be pulling out of the plasma TV business, something that was substantiated by sources who spoke to Reuters back in October. In line with its efforts to cut down on businesses that prove unprofitable, the company will be making some drastic changes to its digital camera division in 2014, as well.
Panasonic has announced a pair of new portable wireless speaker systems including the SC-NA30 and the SC-NA10. Panasonic says that these two wireless speaker systems offer the longest playback time currently available on any wireless speaker. Both of the wireless portable speaker systems offer up to 20 hours of playback per charge.
This year at IFA 2013, we got our hands on Panasonic's Toughpad 4k UT-MB4, the world's first 20-inch 4K tablet. With this massive slate comes a resolution of 3840 x 2560 pixels and an IPS Alpha LCD, as well as Windows 8.1 and the durability that comes with the Toughpad designation. Fast-forward a couple months, and now we know pricing and availability.
We're getting a bunch of new digital cameras this week and Panasonic definitely doesn't want to be left behind. But not only is Panasonic practically announcing a new series of premium compact cameras as part of the company's LUMIX Digital Single Lens Mirrorless (DSLM) line, it is also unveiling the first camera in that line, the DMC-GM1.
When many think about Panasonic they immediately think about televisions, but Panasonic is a big name in the photography industry as well. Panasonic has been producing its line of Lumix digital cameras for a number of years. In fact, we spent some hands-on time with the Lumix GX7 digital camera in September. Some pictures of a new Panasonic digital camera have now leaked online.
It's no secret that Panasonic has been looking to jump ship from the plasma TV business, with word surfacing back in March that the company was looking to get out of the market. Now more concrete information has surfaced, with Reuters again reporting on the matter, this time with sources who claim Panasonic will be dropping from the business by March of 2014.
Panasonic's Lumix GX7 is the latest in a long line of interchangeable lens cameras, raising the game with features you might normally associate with full-sized DSLRs like an adjustable viewfinder. Announced last month, the GX7 takes Panasonic's camera design back to a more retro place, looking particularly good in the two-tone finish we spotted at IFA 2013 today. Beauty is more than skin-deep, however.
Twelve months ago Panasonic showed us a 4k display slotted into an oversized tablet and threatened to release it on the world; now, the Panasonic Toughpad 4K UT-MB4 has been born. 20-inches and 3840 x 2560 resolution, the Toughpad 4K UT-MB4 isn't being targeted at your average iPad owner - not least because it's ten times the price - but instead at architects, artists, and design studios, though we must confess feeling some lust ourselves. Read on for our first-impressions.
