This week Panasonic added the Toughbook N1 handheld device to its line of ultra-durable portable computing gadgets. Now the company is introducing two more models.

The Panasonic Toughbook T1 is a rugged handheld with a 5 inch display, and the Toughbook L1 is a rugged 7 inch tablet. Both feature shock-resistant designs, dust and water resistant bodies, and built-in barcode scanners. These are aimed at the enterprise market rather than consumers, and they’re priced to reflect that: both models will sell for about $1499 and up.

For that price it’s a little disappointing that both devices also feature Qualcomm Snapdragon 210 processors. On the bright side, they ship with Android 8.1 and include hot-swappable batteries, allowing you to change our batteries in the field without pausing to turn off the device.

Here’s a run-down of the spec sheet for each model:

  1. I like the Toughbook idea, but not the huge price tag. For me, it’s better to stick with inexpensive hardware and simply replace it when it breaks. It’s kind of fun upgrading to something new every year or so anyway.
