Panasonic September 4th press conference to reveal 20 inch 4K tablet
Panasonic has started to receive a buzz pre-IFA for word that the Japanese OEM will show off the thinnest and lightest 20 inch 4K tablet just before the start of the 2013 IFA show. While the slate is part of the company's presentation entitled "A Better Life, A Better World," the tablet is still far away from any sort of commercial release. The slate is one of the products that Panasonic will show off at a press conference on September 4th in Berlin. After the event, the tablet will be on display during the IFA show.

The concept tablet will provide for a 4K OLED display at 20 inches. This means that at over 20 inches the resolution would be 3840 x 2160 which provides a pixel density of 220ppi. We first heard about the device back in January and back then we were told that the tablet ran on Windows 8 and used an Intel processor. We will find out shortly if Panasonic changed the configuration to include Android. Considering that Google's open source OS has been used by Panasonic in the past, it is a pretty good possibility, especially if the manufacturer plans on an eventual commercial release of the tablet.

Just grabbed my laptop monitor to make a comparison in size (its 17") 20" is actually quite large... very large really..

20in... Yeah it'll definitely stay as a concept with that size. That's bigger than any laptop screen I know of.

So could I use it as a primary touchscreen monitor and hook it up to my current 20" monitor as a secondary? That would be great!
