MISSISSAUGA — On May 18, Panasonic Enterprise Solutions Division of Panasonic Canada Inc., announced the launch of the TOUGHBOOK S1, a new, fully rugged 7-inch Android™ tablet that offers the functionality, performance, and flexibility mobile workers need when capturing and accessing critical information in the field. The device is supported by productivity+, a comprehensive Android ecosystem that enables customers to develop, deploy and sustain the Android OS environment in the enterprise.

As enterprises move operations closer to the edge, they require a powerful, connected solution capable of optimizing speed, security and connectivity at the point of service. The TOUGHBOOK S1 tablet’s compact and lightweight body purports to be made for portability and reliability for workers who move from place to place across the manufacturing, transportation and logistics and field services industries.

“The TOUGHBOOK S1 is purpose-built for mobile workers in the most challenging environments and conditions, especially in transportation and logistics, manufacturing and field services where efficiency and reliability are essential for getting the job done,” Ashley Evans, Director Marketing Operations, Enterprise Solutions Division of Panasonic Canada Inc. “Building on the TOUGHBOOK legacy of productivity and ruggedness, the TOUGHBOOK S1 comes at a time when our customers demand reliable technology solutions to support digital and mobile operations.”

The TOUGHBOOK S1 boasts screen visibility and touch that is not an issue for workers in challenging outdoor environments with its anti-reflection screen, patented rain mode and multi-touch performance whether using a stylus, finger or glove. These features are especially helpful for manufacturing workers who find themselves inspecting facilities, managing a lot of data or delivering packages that require signature proof.
