Hands-on the CF-U1, Panasonic’s First Atom Powered TOUGHBOOK
This morning in Japan, Panasonic launched the CF-U1. It’s the first Toughtbook tablet PC from the Japanese maker powered by an ATOM CPU, a Z520 at 1.33GHz. Our CF-U1 has 1GB of RAM, 16GB of SSD, a 5.6” wide LCD (WSVGA), Wifi A/B/G and Bluetooth. It runs either on Windows XP Tablet PC Edition, or Vista Business SP1. (1.06kg, 184x150x57mm).
Like ALL Panasonic TOUGHBOOKs, the CF-U1 is pretty amazing and tough (Panasonic demonstrated this by dropping it 30 times(artistical quotation of 10/10) from a height of 1m20)! The Japanese company also demonstrated how their UMPC was water-resistant, and actually, you should be able to use your device under the rain without any problem!
But just a council… don’t use it in the pool! it is not waterproof! Moreover, the demonstrator was a little scared when there was too much water!
Anyway! We also noticed that CF-U1 Vista version is faster than other ATOM UMPC running on this OS… And on XP version, as usual, it’s amazing
The CF-U1 will be released in Japan in October.
