Panasonic 20-inch 4K tablet – ultra HD Windows 8 tablet
Panasonic 20-inch 4K tablet – what is it?
The Panasonic 20-inch 4K tablet is what is says on the tin, a large tablet with a very high resolution screen (3840 x 2560 pixels in this case). 4K screens have a resolution of four times full high definition so pictures are incredibly sharp. Panasonic says it’s a tablet for photographers and architects to demonstrate their work. Suffice it to say, it’s no iPad rival.
The following is not a review, but our first impressions of the product based on a short time using it. Pricing and availability is tentative and subject to change.
Which? expert first impressions
First impressions are wow, that’s pretty large and heavy for a tablet. However, on taking a look at the specs packed in, it starts to make a bit more sense – there’s a lot packed in there but don’t let the tablet label trick you into thinking it’s particularly portable.
My other main question is – does a 20-inch tablet need to have 4K resolution? 4K is such a high resolution that you really need to see it on a large screen to get the benefit – like on a 84-inch TV – so here is it a bit wasted? Well, it might be overkill but the screen quality still looks amazing.
