Panasonic, Newark, N.J., added two new rugged handheld tablets to its diverse portfolio of enterprise-grade mobile devices—the Toughpad FZ-F1 and FZ-N1.

Dubbed the world’s lightest fully rugged handheld tablets, these 4.7-inch Android and Windows devices feature a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, ideal for markets like transportation, logistics, manufacturing and retail, and for a wide variety of applications, such as inventory management, shipping and receiving, delivery routing, parcel tracking, retail store line busting and more.

The Toughpad FZ-F1 & FZ-N1 features an ergonomically designed, angled rear barcode reader that allows the user to scan items without bending at the elbow or wrist while also being able to clearly read the screen. In addition, the Panasonic device comes with barcode reader activation buttons on either side, making it easy for use by left- or right-handed workers.

Other features include a glove-enabled, multi-touch, sunlight viewable display with a rain sensing mode that delivers accurate operation, even in inclement weather.
