The tablet can be combined with accessories–optional Panasonic desktop cradle and carrying case such that it can be used as both PC and tablet.

It has both touch capabilities and unique Panasonic electronic touch pen for pinpoint accuracy and freehand sketching that offers a paper like feel.

The electronic pen is super intuitive, provides great accuracy by using infrared signals to distinctly read every single pixel on the screen and communicates via Bluetooth with the tablet. It can detect and record the pen tilt,and can interpret 2048 levels of pressure ensuring even the smallest detail is perfectly reflected.

The tablet contains a hardware enhanced security and holds a 3 year warranty. It was unveiled at CES 2013 last January but expected to hit the market in mid feb 2014. The 20 inch flagship is soon to be followed by the 10 inches and 7 inches.

Drawbacks: The price tag of $5999 is sure to make us have a second thought to buy, moreover no word on the price of the Panasonic electronic pen.

Another major drawback with high performance oriented gadgets is the short battery life. The tough pad holds 2 hours of battery such that one must always have a charger for longer duration of usage.
