revealed at IDF earlier this year? No? Well, it happened. Details were pretty hard to come by then, but the company's officially announced the product as the H1 tablet. The fully ruggedized slate is built on familiar netbook internals with a 1.86 GHz Intel Atom CPU, 1GB of RAM, an 80GB SSD, a 10.4-inch 1024 x 768 resolution LCD display with an InPlay Technologies digitizer, and 802.11a/b/g/n. It's going to be available in January of 2009 for a somewhat staggering $2,799, though the figure is less painful when you consider that awesome custom handle on the back. If you can't get enough tedious details about devices such as this, you're in luck: hit the read link for a serious plethora of information in the press releases, and check out the awesome educational video they've released after the break. We think you'll find it has a lot to offer in terms of production values and soundtrack.
Update: We were contacted by a rep for Panasonic, and it turns out that the H1 is going to run you $2,999, not $2,799.
