Panasonic tonight at a Hollywood event announced the US availability of the Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 tablet, the world's first 20-inch tablet with a 4K resolution display.

The business-rugged Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 is powered by an Intel Core i5 vPro processor, features Windows 8.1 Pro and offers a 3840x2560 pixel display that goes beyond Ultra HD resolution. The device features a 20-inch IPS Alpha LCD screen featuring 230 pixels per inch, a 15:10 aspect ratio, wide viewing angles, and 10-point touch.
The Toughpad 4K UT-MB5 will be available in January 2014 at a list price of $5,999. All Toughpad tablets can be purchased through authorized Panasonic resellers.
