Panasonic recently gave a sneak peak to people in okyo of the company's upcoming Toughbook medical tablet that seems to feature Intel's new Atom processor, which typically requires no ventilation, hence allows high performance devices to be waterproof. Aside from a touch-screen display, it has features like RFID and a fingerprint sensor built in.

The device, because it is a solid sealed, waterproof unit, and due to its shockproof design it is ideal for being spilt on, banged about, knocked against patient beds and hallway doors, same as other point of care equipment in a typical Hospital. Thus, such a device might become a popular item for clinicians and nurses to view medical records and input data on the fly.
