Panasonic Unveils the Handheld Toughbook CF-U1, a Rugged Ultra mobile PC for Field Workers in Extreme Environments

July 01, 2008

SECAUCUS, NJ – In response to the increasing demand for full-function handheld PCs for the mobile field worker, Panasonic Computer Solutions Company has made available the Panasonic Toughbook CF-U1, the first ultra mobile PC (UMPC) to integrate the new low-power Intel Atom processor in a rugged handheld computer for use in the field. With the introduction of the portable Toughbook CF-U1, remote workers are able to connect to information and applications in real time.

The Toughbook CF-U1 has several docking options that expand functionality whether in a vehicle, at a desk, or on the move. The Toughbook CF-U1 operates on the full-function Windows XP and Windows Vista operating systems and features a thumb-friendly, backlit QWERTY keyboard. State-of-the-art Panasonic LCD technology enables sunlight viewability with low-power, white LED backlighting. Its fanless all-weather design also reduces noise and weight and eliminates points of failure.

The Panasonic Toughbook CF-U1 UMPC will be available worldwide in August 2008. In the United States, the base CF-U1 model is expected to be available at an estimated street price of $2,499 from authorized Panasonic resellers and distributors.
