Panasonic ToughPad FZ-E1 review


The world's toughest tablet is here – but it's also one of the world's most expensive slates

The world’s toughest tablet; Hot-swappable battery; Fantastic battery life; versatile specification

Daunting price; heavy and thick; Unimpressive screen resolution and size

In certain industries, the cost can be justified, but it's overkill for the ordinary consumer.
