Panasonic showed off a prototype of its 4K tablet at the CES in Las Vegas at the start of the year. Nine months later and it seems like the device is ready to ship. A hands-on by Wired magazine on Sunday concluded that the ‘Toughpad 4K’ was the “standout” device in Panasonic’s booth at IFA Berlin. We also heard that this giant tablet, running Windows 8.1, will be available in Europe starting from November, priced at €4,500 (£3,800).
