There are almost as many hot tabletbooks launching this year as hot tablets. Sadly for all of them, Panasonic's just won the competition (via SlashGear). At least, they have on paper. The Toughbook C1 has everything you could possibly want in a tabletbook.

The screen is a 12.1” WXGA display with LED backlighting, multitouch, and a digitizer. The C1 has a shock-mounted hard drive, and the whole machine is rated to survive a drop of 30 inches. It can hold either one battery (3.2 lbs) or two batteries (3.7 lbs). The processor is an Intel Core i5-520M vPro clocked at 2.4 GHz.

The C1 has 2 GB of RAM and a 320 GB HDD. Starting this Fall, it will be available with a special screen that can work with gloves. It has Bluetooth and WiFi and can be set up with Gobi2000 mobile broadband. Oh, and it also has an optional fingerprint reader and SmartCard reader. It ships in June for a (starting price) of $2499.

Ouch. I think most customers will be happy to make due with something a little less awesome, and a hell of a lot cheaper. Still, that trackpad looks awesome.
