Panasonic launched its new Android tablet FZ-L1 in the Toughbook series in US on July 26. The new rugged tablet scores mediocre specifications but was launched at a hefty price of $1,499. Last month, Panasonic launched FZ-T1 in Europe which also made it to the US markets. Talking about key specs, the old-school tablet Toughbook FZ-L1 by Panasonic features just 2GB of RAM, a quad-core processor and houses no front-facing camera. But the durable Toughbook FZ-L1 can’t be compared with standard Android tablets as it is aimed to target the enterprise segment.

Panasonic Toughbook FZ-L1 Price
The rugged and sturdy Android tablet Toughbook FZ-L1 offers mediocre specifications and is aggressively priced at $1,499 which translates to roughly Rs 1,02,900 in the US. Though, the tablet is highly durable and meant for the enterprise market, the device is still an overly priced one. That being said, the Panasonic Toughbook FZ-L1 will not and shall not make it to the Indian market as it won’t meet its fate in the country.
