Although Windows 7-based tablets have not been successful, Panasonic hopes to beat the iPad with Toughbook CF-H2 Health in the medical care field. Toughbook CF-H2 Health is designed for rugged use and it’s easier to clean and disinfect as compared to the iPad. This makes the tablet quite suitable for use in the medical sector.
Panasonic’s Toughbook CF-H2 Health will ship in Europe in August with a price tag of $2,330. The tablet is way more expensive than the iPad. It remains to be seen whether doctors will go for the costly and heavier Toughbook CF-H2 Health or the cheaper and lighter iPad.
