Panasonic announced its Toughpad family of Android-powered tablets in November, 2011. The company is touting them as ideal for highly mobile workers, including healthcare personnel. The Toughpad A1 incorporates security embedded at the hardware level and offers technologies like hardware and software encryption, enhanced VPN, dual-factor authentication, trusted boot, and device management. This enhanced level of device security means the Toughpad A1 will be HIPAA-ready for healthcare environments. The Toughpad A1 has a high brightness, 10.1-inch XGA capacitive, multi-touch, daylight-viewable screen, and includes a stylus, enabling flexible data entry in the field. The Toughpad A1 will begin shipping in the spring of 2012.
