Panasonic built a 7" Android tablet that's basically made for me

Panasonic built a 7" Android tablet that's basically made for me

When Panasonic offered us a review unit of the new Toughbook S1 Android tablet, I was immediately interested. Not because I'm working in the IT department of a company with a massive warehouse or in the military watching drone footage, but because the Toughbook line is known for being, well, very tough. From Windows laptops to Android products, Toughbooks are designed to last in the harshest environments with high military durability ratings. As someone who has a tendency to break a lot of things, this device was instantly appealing to me.

Panasonic has hidden a smart-home camera inside this discreet floor lamp (Update: Now available)

Panasonic has hidden a smart-home camera inside this discreet floor lamp (Update: Now available)

Smart home security cameras are great, but having a home full of surveillance gear starts looking creepy, fast. Panasonic has come up with a new idea to help hide cameras in plain sight, as it opens crowdfunding for the HomeHawk Floor: Camera and Ambient Light. This two-in-one camera and light debuted at CES 2019 and is now available for early adopters through Indiegogo until February 22.

Panasonic and Technics unveil three true wireless buds with active noise cancelation

Panasonic and Technics unveil three true wireless buds with active noise cancelation

When it comes to true wireless earbuds, there's a bunch of brands and products to choose from. With the recent release of the Sony WF-1000XM3 and AirPods Pro, most high-end ones are starting to offer active noise cancellation, a technology that used to be exclusive to headphones. In this context, it makes sense for Panasonic to want to rival its compatriot, which it's trying to achieve with the announcement of three true wireless earbuds.

Just look at how stylish all the style is on this stylish Panasonic tablet

Just look at it. Do you see those artful lines? Those graceful curves? This, my friends, is what you get when you don't set out to create just another boring-old utilitarian enterprise tablet for soulless purchasing departments — this is what happens when you put design on a pedestal and refuse to settle for less. Meet the Panasonic Toughbook FZ-L1.

Panasonic's new Toughbook FZ-T1 is a £1,200 enterprise 'handheld' with a hot-swappable battery and Android 8.1 Oreo

Panasonic's new Toughbook FZ-T1 is a £1,200 enterprise 'handheld' with a hot-swappable battery and Android 8.1 Oreo

Panasonic's Toughbook line has been around for a while, offering rugged devices for those workers who need them. They're not cheap, and neither is its latest Toughbook product: the FZ-T1. Like most of these devices, this ~$1500 handheld has some downright mediocre specs for the price, but at least it has Android 8.1 Oreo.

Android Automotive updates from CES 2018: 8.0 Oreo, Google Assistant, fancy head units, and more

Android Automotive updates from CES 2018: 8.0 Oreo, Google Assistant, fancy head units, and more

Android Automotive remains something of an obscurity, but companies are still happy to tout their latest progress with the platform (or something like it), especially on a stage as large as CES 2018. Before we get to that, it's probably worthwhile to distinguish between Android Automotive and Android Auto: Android Automotive is a standalone, in-vehicle infotainment and control system running Android — basically Android OS for your car. This is a more appealing proposition than the rather laggy experience that is Android Auto, which just projects what's on your phone to an interface that sits in your car.

Panasonic Announces The Android-Powered Lumix DMC-CM10 Camera

Panasonic Announces The Android-Powered Lumix DMC-CM10 Camera

Over the years, we've seen many companies release Android-based cameras or camera-like phones. Panasonic's Lumix CM1 was part of the latter category and the newly announced CM10 is its twin, except it doesn't place calls. That's almost all the difference there is between these two models.

The Lumix CM10's claim to fame is its 28mm F/2.8 Leica DC lens with 1-inch CMOS image sensor and manual focus ring that can take photos at a resolution of 20MP and videos at up to 4K. The rest of the CM10's specs are quite underwhelming, but they're not necessarily what you look at when buying this camera.

Panasonic Launches The Rs.10,999 Eluga Icon, Exclusively Available From Amazon India Starting August 13th

Panasonic is one of the world's largest TV manufacturers. The company also makes other gadgets, including smartphones, though no one would blame you if you haven't heard of any of its handsets.

But Panasonic has produced and sold a few low-end smartphones priced below 5,000 rupees in India. Now it is launching a device costing 10,999 called the Eluga Icon, the latest entry in a line of handsets that began in 2012.
