Reviews Word on the street for the Panasonic Toughpad FZ-G1

Round the back you'll find a removable 4400mAh battery, which is claimed to last up to eight hours - which you can get with careful usage.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


In true rugged device fashion, the Panasonic ToughPad FZ-G1 isn't exactly a winner in the looks department, with a rather chunky plastic and rubber chassis.

There are also 126GB and 256GB flash memory storage drives, a variety of processor speeds and the potential to have a rear-facing camera as well as the standard 1.3MP front facing snapper, which lets you customise your rugged tablet even further.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
The standard battery life makes this only just capable of lasting a working day, but the sturdy build and snappy insides mean the ToughPad is a hardwearing and hardworking option.

Operating System

Now why not read Windows 8 vs Windows RT: what's the difference?
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
The ToughPad FZ-G1 comes running Windows 8 Pro - the same software you'll find on desktops and laptops.
by TechRadar (May, 2013)
Panasonic claims the ToughPad FZ-G1 can survive a drop of four metres, and though we couldn't test this claim, the rugged feel of this tablet makes us inclined to agree.

Seven large physical keys adorn the front of the ToughPad FZ-G1 just below the screen.

It runs smoothly and we were able to glide through the live tiles on the Start screen and drop in and out of desktop mode without any hassle.

There's a bunch of optional extras you can add to the ToughPad, with a slot on the top of the tablet giving you the choice of LAN, USB 2.0, microSD, GPS and True Serial.

At 1.1kg, the ToughPad FZ-G1 isn't as heavy as it looks, but its still feels substantial in the palm and you'll probably find yourself gripping it with both hands if you don't have a surface to rest it on.
