A 5.6" Panasonic Tablet Toughbook launching this week!

The machine is based on Intel’s Centrino Atom platform and prototype versions have a touch-sensitive 5.6-inch screen under which is a compact QWERTY keyboard that’s been split in half with a number pad filling up the center. The letter keys were divided to make them all within reach of the user’s thumbs so its possible to hold the machine and type.

Panasonic is scheduled to officially unveil the machine, detailed specifications, global shipping dates and prices on Wednesday.
