Announced: Panasonic’s New Ultraportables – W4, T4, and R4

Akihabara News has word of new ultraportables coming out from Panasonic, in both 12.1-inch and 10.4-inch models. They are not Intel Duo Core powered, and they are not widescreen. They report one very interesting feature, that they “are designed to resist a pressure of 100kgs, except for the R4 that resists to a pressure of 50kg”. They are using Ultra Low Voltage Pentium Ms, with a 400MHz frontside bus, Intel’s 915GMS Express Chipset, DDR2, and use 60GB Ultra ATA Drives.
