Panasonic Toughpad FZ-A1

Tablets aren’t exactly known for durability. Indeed, dropping an iPad onto a carpeted surface from a couple of feet can quickly kill it. Luckily, Panasonic has your back with its Toughpad FZ-A1, a rugged, water-resistant Android tablet with a 10.1-inch screen.

The Toughpad FZ-A1 starts at $1299, and can withstand extreme temperatures, humidity, dust, sand, rain, high altitudes, and drops of up to 4 feet. As for specs, the FZ-A1 has a 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 16GB of built-in storage (along with a MicroSD card slot for an additional 32GB), and 1GB of RAM. It runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, which isn't the latest OS, but at least it's ready for use, misuse, and abuse.
