Warminster, PA—As the world¹s largest consumer technology tradeshow, this week¹s 2013 International CES® in Las Vegas will highlight the latest innovations in the consumer electronics industry. Wireless technologies and mobile trends are expected to take center stage at this year's conference, driven by the growing adoption of tablets and smartphones.

Panasonic Corporation’s new president, Mr. Kazuhiro Tsuga, will deliver the opening keynote address at CES, which is scheduled to run from Jan. 8-11, 2013. Panasonic will showcase its hottest tablets, including the Android-powered Toughpad A1 and B1.

The tablet displays will also feature Havis Inc.’s Toughbook Certified Docking Station for the Toughpad A1, which was released in November 2012. Additionally, Havis is providing Panasonic with a docking station prototype for the Toughpad B1.

As a Toughbook Certified Partner of Panasonic, Havis knows what it takes to meet the industry¹s toughest safety and quality standards. Havis offers a variety of docking stations that have achieved Toughbook Certification by passing Panasonic¹s rigorous testing process and demanding performance standards.

These docking stations were tested to withstand MIL-STD 810G vibration testing, in-vehicle crash simulations, environment testing and extreme durability testing. For the mobile worker, this testing ensures that their laptop or tablet will remain securely docked and protected through rugged driving conditions and extreme work environments.

Havis’ close relationship with Panasonic allows the company to design the industry’s toughest docking stations for the latest Panasonic tablets and laptops. Havis and Panasonic will continue to collaborate to provide mobile workers with reliable, custom computing solutions that maximize productivity in the field.
