Panasonic has introduced its Toughbook G2 in Canada. It is a rugged two-in-one detachable tablet with optional keyboard and user-removable expansion packs (xPAK’s).

The detachable design allows users to operate the device both in laptop and tablet modes, with the ability to seamlessly dock or mount the device on forklifts, emergency vehicles and desktops.

With three modular expansion areas and up to 36 different xPAK combinations, users can customize the Toughbook G2 to suit their unique needs, with add-ons such as a serial port, thermal camera, barcode reader, quick-release SSD and more. The device is backwards compatible with most Toughbook 20 and G1 docks. Additionally, the computer has three programmable buttons for customization to commonly used applications and shortcuts.

It has a 10.1-inch display and an Intel CoreTM i5 and i7 vPro processor, and is available with Windows 10 Pro. An evolution of the Toughbook G1 tablet and Toughbook 20 laptop, the Toughbook G2 offers 18.5-hour battery life.
