Panasonic's 20 inch 4K Windows 8 tablet to be released in Europe "shortly"

We've been following the saga of Panasonic's 20 inch Windows 8 tablet ever since it was first announced at CES in January. The company, which also releases Toughbook notebooks with Microsoft's operating systems, is supposed to have an insane display resolution of 3840x2560, which is a tad higher than the normal 4K resolution of 3840x2160.

Today, Panasonic showed off the tablet once again as part of its IFA press conference in Berlin. CNet reports that the product, which apparently still doesn't have a proper name yet, is supposed to be released in Europe "shortly" according to statements from Panasonic.

However, there's still a lot we don't know about the tablet, like what hardware it has inside, including its weight and battery life and most importantly the cost of this massive tablet. Hopefully we will learn more about these important details "shortly" as well, including when and if Panasonic will launch the product in the U.S.

While the company is promoting this new Windows 8 product, Reuters reports that Panasonic is getting out of the consumer smartphone market, with its president Kazuhiro Tsug saying that it will end up losing over $11 million in its mobile division in its current fiscal year.
