Slim, sleek and feature-packed; Panasonic to unveil a pair of military-grade rugged smart devices that live up to its looks


New TOUGHBOOK Handheld and tablet designed to meet new demands of diverse industries.

SINGAPORE, 6th December 2018

Slim and sleek are not words that you associate with military grade handheld gadgets. Panasonic, the market leader for ruggedized devices, has hit the right notes for both form and function with its new FZ-T1 handheld and FZ-L1 tablet in its TOUGHBOOK series.

The two smart devices will be launched simultaneously in Singapore for the Asia Pacific market on 6th December 2018 at PARKROYAL on Pickering at 920 a.m.

The pair of versatile devices represents the next evolution of the TOUGHBOOK promise – durable, responsive and built with work in mind. They are one of the slimmest ruggedized devices in the market that come packed with professional grade features like integrated high volume barcode scanning, long-lasting batteries, high-speed connectivity to provide a competitive advantage and offer smarter, more responsive workplaces.

“Fast moving enterprises of today are striving to go digital in their own unique ways. They don’t just need hardware or software vendors. They need a partner that understands their business and delivers solutions that can meet their expectations of form factors, various options, software partnerships, connectivity solutions and more,” says Ms Mina Baek, Head of Business, Toughbook Solution Group, Panasonic System Solutions Asia Pacific.

“The FZ-T1 and FZ-L1 offer rugged reliability and flexible functionality. This again establishes Panasonic’s capability in delivering mobile solutions ecosystem of hardware, software and services for mission-critical enterprise work,” added Ms Baek.

These eye-catching Android devices are the ideal all-rounder for mobile workforces in a wide range of roles and industries, including retail and hospitality, manufacturing, transportation and logistics.

TOUGHBOOK FZ-T1: A Sleek Rugged Handheld For Mission Critical Enterprise Work

The FZ-T1 comes with a slimmer profile and smaller bezel than its predecessors while maintaining its durability. With a 5-inch screen, running AndroidTM 8.1, OreoTM, this device is familiar to workers who rely on smartphones in their personal lives but is thoroughly designed for the rigours of a fast-paced and unpredictable work environment.

For retail workers, warehouse employees, or transportation and logistics professionals, the ability to quickly and reliably scan barcodes on-the-go means their work is faster, records are kept better, and customers stay happy.

The FZ-T1 delivers fast, easy barcode scanning with an integrated barcode reader and high-speed connectivity that ensure it can integrate with the most detailed and comprehensive resource management systems and databases. Designed to MIL-STD-810G standards and IP68 rated, the FZ-T1 is built to make lasting first impressions on customers and exceeds on-the-job rugged expectations. Also, user replaceable batteries with the ability to “warm swap” them on-the-fly means that downtime is minimised and the FZ-T1 keeps the same hours you do.

TOUGHBOOK FZ-L1: A Versatile, Professional-Grade Tablet for Today’s Connected Workplace

Whether mounted in a vehicle or held in the hand, the FZ-L1 offers professional-grade capabilities and reliability to workers who rely on accessing information on the go. Running on Android 8.1, Oreo, this 7-inch rugged tablet computer sports an integrated barcode reader that is field-configured for landscape modes.

FZ-L1 is ready for the challenges of the warehouse, the retail floor, and more. The FZ-L1 is designed to meet MIL-STD-810G standards with IP67. It also shares the ability to “warm swap” batteries for continued productivity.
