Panasonic TOUGHBOOK A3 designed for heavy duty work usage


The Panasonic TOUGHBOOK A3 comes with heavy-duty hardware protection for professionals that need a durable tablet for work.

Nowadays tablets are both used by basic consumers and big enterprises. These tablets make working on-the-go a breeze for tasks that need quick computing. However, not all consumer tablets can withstand the rigor of usage for some professions such as health care and transportation.

Tablets are needed even more these days because of the pandemic. Frontline health workers rely on their tablets to do scans of their patients’ information. They don’t have the time to be careful about their tablets.

As a result, their regular consumer tablets get banged up. Fortunately, Panasonic has just released the TOUGHBOOK A3 to solve this problem.

Panasonic TOUGHBOOK A3

The Panasonic TOUGHBOOK was designed to give professionals on-the-go a durable tablet for work. Firstly, the entire body of the device has a military-grade build of MIL-STD-810 and a 6-foot drop rating. Also, it has an IP65 rating for dust and water resistance.

The TOUGHBOOK A3 is equipped with all the needed ports for professionals to use. It has a 3.5mm headphone jack, a USB-A port, a USB-C port, two Nano-sim slots, and a docking port.

The battery on the Panasonic tablet is unique. It can run for nine hours straight at a single full charge with a swappable 3,200mAh pack. No other tablet in the market has a feature similar to this.

Panasonic also offers a 5,800mAh battery pack for longer power requirements. The camera system on the tablet is quite basic. It will have one 8-megapixel camera at the back and one 5-megapixel camera in the front.


What sets apart the TOUGHBOOK A3 from other consumer tablets is its well thought of functionality. The tablet comes with programmable physical shortcut buttons located on the bottom part of the screen. These can be programmed to launch any app or function in one tap. In fact, it will come useful for tasks that need the camera or bar code scanners to launch quickly.

Internal specs

The tablet runs a Snapdragon 660 chipset and Android 9 which aren’t the fastest systems in the market. However, Panasonic was able to design its own unique Productivity+ program to compensate. It will be through this plan that the company will release any future updates on the tablet.

TOUGHBOOK A3 will have 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal memory that may be expanded via an SD card. The tablet will sell at a starting price of AU$ 2,999.
