Panasonic reveals insane 20-inch tablet with 4K resolution display
Quick, think of the biggest tablet you have ever held in your hands! Okay, now imagine a slate with a diagonal size twice as big and you'll get something like this new 20-inch tablet by Panasonic. Seems both insane and awesome at the same time, doesn't it? Well, hold on to your jaws, guys, because it is about to get even crazier. This monstrous tablet by Panasonic actually packs a 4K resolution display. In other words, you get 3840 by 2160 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of 220ppi. 

Panasonic has not yet announced much in terms of detailed tech specs for the device, but what is known is that the tablet runs Windows 8. That leads us to believe that inside it ticks a high-end Intel Core processor, presumably backed up by a discrete graphics unit to handle all those pixels. There's also support for stylus input, which works with very high precision, according to the manufacturer. Despite its sheer size, the device is under half an inch thick and is relatively light, according to reports. 

Details, such as pricing and availability have not been disclosed yet, but we sure hope to learn more on the matter soon. Panasonic will have the tablet on display at CES.

lol Yeah that is as portable as those HUGE boom boxes from the 80's. You are definitely going to need some HUGE pockets for that. lol

You generally carry around your tablet in your pocket?

No, I don't. I thought the joke was clear, but I guess not. lol

Man you need to go & watch Spaceballs so you can appreciate the humor. It was on Encore 2 days ago.

I've seen Spaceballs. The joke was clear, it just wasn't a very good one.

Who are you to say it wasn't a good one? lol

What are you PhoneArena.com's bad joke monitor? C'mon man you are like that weak no fun RA at college that everyone complains about. lol

Let me tell you something your joke was pretty busted also, so in your book 2 bad jokes make a right, right?!?

There is plenty to post about in PhoneArena.com, I find it really petty that you waste the time to post about my obviously on purpose bad joke. I am glad I intrigue you but you really shouldn’t. I am flattered you took the time though. lol

-1 on that one buddy. Man I am really having a good time here. lol

I think the 13 thumbs up I received as opposed to the 0 you did speak quite resoundingly to the "s**ttiness" of your joke. Also, don't flatter yourself. It's quite a stretch to think that my comment means that I am "intrigued" by you. I take five minutes out of most of my days to take a dump in my toilet, but I assure you that I am not intrigued by it, either.

You must be new around these parts because thumbs up or thumbs down mean nothing. lol

Rookie mistake there.

Remember your joke was just as sh*tty as mine. BUT you & only YOU commented on my post.

Again I ask you, are you PhoneArena.com's bad joke monitor & if so, why did you post an equally bad joke? You know you are not supposed to do that. Also whatever you do while dumping is your prerogative so please keep that nasty sh*t to yourself. No pun intended there. lol

BAD, BAD PhoneArena.com bad joke monitor. lol

Also since you care so much here is another -1 for you. :-)

If thumbs don't matter, then why were you the only one that thumbed down all my posts? Anyway, rhetorical question. As much as I'm enjoying this immature banter, I think I'll pass. Later, guy.

lol

Yes I am glad you finally see how immature your post on my obviously on purpose bad joke was.

Also I thumbed you down because I know you don't like it.

See there is a method to the madness. lol

It's very regal you to "I'll pass" when you originally started this immature banter as you so cleverly stated.

I wish you recognized it BEFORE you posted your comment. Better late than never right?

+1 to you.

Isn't that REALLY considered LOW for a 20" tablet with demanding hardware?

Clearly bonkers, but what on earth is powering that thing and how long with the battery last at such resolutions, also there is practically nothing that outputs in such resolutions, heck even most cable companies don't output 1080p as of yet. Can only imagine the amount of bandwidth such visuals eat up. Wonder how affordable this will be, now if that was a tad smaller would be a great tablet. 10" with 4K resolution would match the DNA 441 pixel density but in a nice sexy tablet form.
Shouldn't this sort of tech be used in movie theaters before it hits home? You'll be hard pressed to watch anything in the theaters anymore if the visuals are worse than your OLED 55" 4K TV and 11.2 studio sound system.

I could see Samsung coming up with a 4k SAMOLED display for their Note 10.1 2. That'd equal about 440ppi. Or even, some how, a 6in 4k display for the Note 3 with about 734ppi.

10. MistB (Posts: 570; Member since: 07 Jul 2012)


I don't see that happening for the Note 3, the battery would die within minutes, if not seconds so 1080p is where it stands unless the Note 4 increases it's screen size to 6.7 inches. Knowing Samsung or even Huawei, that's probably what they'd consider for their next generation line of Tablets/Phablets, the former definitely has the irk and grunt to pull it off for bragging rights.

440ppi is extreme and 734ppi is not neeaded :-)

At 20" that is way too big to carry around. We had a 19" LCD TV in the office. That's actually bigger than my LCD monitor I have on my desk.

20 inch tabelt? I don't care if it has an 8 core processor with 4gb of ram and the best display in the world.... Too fricken big.

This is obviously an All-in-one PC. I would definitely get one to use as a monitor, nobody expects someone to carry this around as a tablet.

it has a battery so it is not considered an all in one. with a battery it is obvious that it is designed to be portable.

i would totally buy one if it came with an external power supply instead of a battery. these specs would make an amazing all-in-one, but the battery reveals that it is a tablet.

irrelevant, the Lenovo Horizon and Vaio Tap 20 come with batteries and are still considered All-in-one PCs. The batteries are there for convenience and semi portability.

Why do we have crazy resolutions on phones and tablets and laptops are still stuck with shi**y 1366x768 with awfull viewing angles, the only good screens on laptops are on laptops that cost 1000+ € Bring the screen resolution war to laptops pleaseee! :/

23. downphoenix (Posts: 2302; Member since: 19 Jun 2010)


Totally agree. I know someone that paid $1300 for an excellent gaming laptop, he's capped at 1600x900 for the resolution. Seriously? He's got a 660M in his laptop, that would more than handle 1080p, or higher rez.

That's insane resolution even on 20" screen, what with most manufacturers not even putting FullHd screens on it's Tablets/ laptops/ ultrabooks.......... They should make it with some sort of stand just like Microsoft's surface, and they should also make some keyboard dock, for this.........
