Toughpad FZ-Q2 semi-rugged 2-in-1 tablet PC

We’ve added to our 2-in-1 detachable tablet PC line-up with the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-Q2, a semi-rugged convertible tablet designed to offer mobile workers the very best of both worlds with tablet and notebook functionality in a lightweight but durable business device. The semi-rugged Toughpad FZ-Q2 is suitable for users who require a business ready tablet that can still withstand light outside duties.

The FZ-Q2 offers a large 12.5” display for easy viewing and a wide range of business ports for use with modern and legacy business systems. With a flexible design as a standalone tablet or connected to an optional keyboard, the device is well suited to the needs of many mobile workers.

With its magnesium alloy cabinet casing, the device provides robust protection against drops (the most common cause of device failure*1) and has an optional spill-proof keyboard, yet remains lightweight and slim (max 1.93kg and 43mm thick). The tablet without keyboard weighs 1.09kg and is 22mm thick. A 9-hour battery life provides extended use across the entire working day. Optional features include a 360-degree rotating handstrap that can be added for easy working with the tablet in portrait or landscape positions, and a sleek desktop cradle with Kensington lock for security.

“We’ve already introduced 2-in-1 models in our fully-rugged notebook and tablet lineup – and this convenient design is now available in a semi-rugged form. Adding the Toughpad FZ-Q2 to our line-up allows organisations to maximise their investment in rugged technology without compromise.
“Our Toughbook and Toughpad lineup can meet requirements across a fleet requiring different levels of ruggedness, from technicians on the road to team leaders working both in the office and the field.”
– Marc Amelung, General Manager Mobile Solutions, Panasonic Australia

The FZ-Q2 will meet the needs of users such as production line managers, fitters and mechanics in manufacturing, field service engineers and telecommunications technicians, and customer-facing sales staff in retail. The unit can also be safely sanitised with a disinfectant solution for health or food services or inspection applications.

“Our entire family of Toughbook and Toughpad products are engineered to meet the real-world demands our customers face on a daily basis, and in many of these environments consumer devices simply fall short.
“With enterprise-grade features and rugged protection, the FZ-Q2 ensures a longer product lifecycle and higher return on mobile computing investments.”
– Marc Amelung, General Manager Mobile Solutions, Panasonic Australia
