Panasonic Toughpad™ 4K Tablet has also an unprecedented level of precision. You can also acquire the optical natural hand writing pen, which offers you 2048 levels of pressure with sensitivity and accuracy to the pixel level. This is possible thanks to the Anoto technology, which unique dot pattern is ideal for digital writing on tablets and screens. Its technique lets artists draw on Panasonic’s 4K tablet with higher accuracy and fewer worries about the touch surface’s size or composition. This feature turns the device into something incredibly useful for marketing professionals, photographers, architects, and other such business users.

Panasonic reps quoted pricing for the standard version at €4,508 (about $6,000), with the Performance version MSRP to be announced. The optional pen will retail for €280 (about $370).
