Panasonic Toughbook FZ-L1 is a new Rugged 7 inch Android Tablet For Mobile Workers

By Radu Iorga

Panasonic introduced a new tablet this week, but this time a smaller and rugged model, a 7 inch Android slate known as TOUGHBOOK FZ-L1. It has an optional integrated barcode reader and it’s both versatile and smartly priced. This rugged model is ideal for mobile workers.

The slate has uses in areas like hospitality, manufacturing, transportation and logistics. It can be used for real time ordering, inventory checks and proper localization of products. Routing, task association and inventory management are also on the table. It comes with a WiFi-only option for inside workers or with optional voice and data capability for field-based workers.

Panasonic’s Toughbook FZ-L1 weighs around 480 grams, which by rugged tablet standards is quite light. It’s based on a Snapdragon platform, runs Android and there will be an impressive total of 8 versions of the device available. They come with or without integrated enterprise class straightline barcode readers, used to scan 1D, 2D or QR codes. There’s also a choice of WiFi only or WiFi and 4G data capabilities, or Google Mobile Services.

 

The products run on Android 8.1 Oreo with the promise of an update to Android 9.0 Pie when it comes. A quad core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU is inside, clocked at 1.1 GHz and accompanied by 16 GB of flash storage and 2 GB of RAM. Battery swap is included, letting you use another battery without interrupting work. As far as the ruggedness goes, the Toughbook has been certified for Military Standard 810G usage, with dust and water resistance up to IP67 and it can be dropped from up to 1.5 meters in height.

Accessories include cradles, holsters, battery packs, styli and protective films.

Samsung Galaxy Book 2 2 in 1 Laptop Certified by FCC, Runs Windows 10

By Radu Iorga

Samsung has a new 2 in 1 device coming, we knew as much and now we learn that the Samsung Galaxy Book 2 has been certified by the FCC. It’s going to run on Windows 10 and it previously appeared in other leaks.

It was also certified by the EEC and WiFi Alliance and this second gen Galaxy Book appeared on the FCC website with the FCC ID A3L SMW737NO. EEC also had it with the model number “SM-W737”. It should also have a SM-W738 version, that will not make it to the US market. LTE connectivity should be in the mix, as well as WiFi dual band a/b/g/n/ac. Samsung’s first Galaxy Book came last year in two sizes: 10.6 inch and 12 inch.

It was all about productivity, hooking up an S-Pen with Windows 10 and the Air Command features. It had Smart Select, Samsung Notes and more. The current model has an Intel Core 7th gen CPU, while the Galaxy Book 2 is said to be ready to receive an 8th gen CPU inside. It’s said to ship with Windows 10 S, but I’m sure the upgrade to full Windows 10 is on the table.

While a launch time frame isn’t clear yet, we expect the product to be in stores around the holiday season. Expect the price to go past $1000, like the predecessor’s. I wouldn’t predict a jump to more than 16 GB of RAM though, but extra storage and maybe even some decent graphics may happen.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Gooseneck Mount Work Around – If It Was a Snake It Would Have Bit Me!

By Tim

The other day I received my desk edge mounted gooseneck mouse  accessory. I did a video, posted an article here and the only open question was how to mount the smartphone with the holder being vertical and the phone being horizontal.

I did mention I was going to need to shim it somehow. While my current phone has a center positioned camera, future phones will more than likely have them to the left or right.

So I was still searching about for a good solid shim device and I spotted one from my seat here in front of the PC.

I realized that my tablet charger for either my Chuwi HiBook or Hi12 was just the right width!

So without further explanation, below you will find the video.

Today’s Video Worth Sharing: Budget Phone Overload

By Tim

Today I did a video on a subject that was also covered by Ben over at ben’s gadget reviews a few days ago. We have both reached similar conclusions on the fact that the Chinese smartphone companies are releasing new phones at far too high a rate.

This creates a market that has a brand  having 3-4 smartphones all with similar specs at nearly the same price and very few reviewers who are willing to do all these budget phone reviews.

This becomes exceedingly confusing for folks trying to find the perfect phone in their budget range. Sometimes you will find the perfect phone and wait a fews before ordering, only to find out there are 3 more similar phones from the likes of Nubia, Meizu, Doogee, Xiaomi, etc.

The “flagship” phones are an easier group to keep track of, because there are simply only a few models in total out there and the Samsung, Apple, Huawei, LG top end stuff does not get updated more than once per year.

This is why I am only recommending 3 budget phones so far this year. I can’t possibly keep up, especially when I do all my stuff based on specs and research of hands on reviews.

So in the video below I actually make a recommendation about flagships and try to explain why the heavy hitter YouTubers tend to focus on the top of the line stuff. (Take a guess why? Yeah, money).

The video is long, but worth watching, so let us get to it right now…
