Although chipmaker Intel has been working on phasing out the once famous Atom series processors and toning down its Android devices running on the processor, Panasonic recently revealed that it is releasing a new tablet with the Atom processor running on Android 6.0.
The new Panasonic Toughbook FZ-A2 has an Intel Atom x5 Z8550 processor, according to Computer World. Even though Panasonic's decision to use an aged Atom processor has raised some questions from the tech community, what really got a lot of flak is the company's decision to slap it with a $2,189 price tag.

For one, Atom processors are almost non-existent in recently released tablets, especially those that run on the Android platform. Some are also skeptical whether Panasonic will release the Android 7.0 Nougat update to the Toughbook FZ-A2.
According to GSM Arena, the Panasonic Toughbook FA-A2 sports a 10.1-inch WUXGA IPS display. It has 3GB of memory, and Panasonic claimed that the tablet's battery pack can last up to nine hours on a single charge. Unlike most mobile devices nowadays, the Toughbook's battery pack is replaceable.
The Toughbook, as the name implies, also appears to be tough on paper. The tablet has a MIL STD 810G certification. It also scored an IP65 rating, which means it is dust and water proof up to a certain level. In terms of design, the Toughbook has a side panel, which houses all of the tablet's port. This design makes sure that no particles can enter the tablet.
Panasonic said that the Toughbook FZ-A2 is built for business-oriented users. The tablet comes standard with a smartcard reader and a barcode sensor as well.
