Panasonic is entering the tablet market market not with the proverbial “iPad killer” but with promoting brand extension between its different devices. The new Panasonic tablet that is currently in development and was showcased as a prototype at the CES was billed as a standalone device, but also seamlessly integrated with the G and V series of Panasonic Viera line of televisions.
Panasonic showed off 3 different companion tablet computers, a 10.1 inch, a 7 inch, and and a 4 inch model. They were running on a Google Android 2.1 operating system and the rest of the specs were kept secret because most of the hardware was not finalized and was subject to change.
The essence of these 3 new tablets was to wirelessly connect up to your Panasonic television and via DLNA was able to shoot live video from the tablet to your TV. This was done by only swiping the video to the top of the screen and it disappeared from the tablet and appeared on the television.
