Panasonic Toughbook H1 obtains Gobi Certification
The Verizon Wireless network will be offering a new notebook for the masses that is much tougher than your average model, and we suspect even able to withstand environments where the normal nerd would faint by then. We’re talking about the Panasonic Toughbook H1 mobile clinical assistant (MCA) that has recently received Gobi certification for use on the Verizon Wireless network. Due to its relatively tiny form factor, extremely light chassis and a reasonable bunch of built-in specifications and features, the Toughbook H1 ends up being a rather attractive solution for those who are knee deep in mobile healthcare environments such as EMS, mobile blood banks and home health workers. Not only that, healthcare professionals who tend to do plenty of traveling between offices, patient homes and hospitals will realize just what a handy tool the Verizon Wireless’ Mobile Broadband is when used in conjunction with the Toughbook H1, allowing one to reduce down time while increasing overall productivity despite being physically removed from traditional healthcare facilities.
The Toughbook H1, being in the healthcare line, has naturally been built for easy disinfection after each rigorous day at work, helping lower the risk of germs being spread from patient to patient. Not only that, it will go some ways in reducing medication administration errors while helping clinicians deliver faster, safer care. Features of the Panasonic Toughbook H1 include an integrated RFID reader, a 2.0-megapixel auto-focus camera with dual LED lights, a barcode reader, contactless smart card reader and fingerprint readers.
Glad to know that Panasonic has not restricted the release and sale of the Toughbook H1 to selected parts of the world since it is available worldwide. Pricing might differ depending on the region where you’re currently living in, although folks in the US can pick up the base H1 model for approximately $2,999. It ain’t cheap, that’s for sure.
