Panasonic has just exited the smartphone business but it’s not giving up on tablets just yet, with the announcement that it’s 20-inch 4K tablet will be making its way into stores come November.

Speaking at IFA, the company’s GM Jan Kampfer confirmed that the tablet, which was unveiled at CES earlier this year, will be officially released in September, and it will come in two different models.

The first model to launch has been designed with pros in mind, with 8GB of RAM (expandable up to 16GB), and a 256GB SSD. The standard model is set to include 4GB of RAM (expandable to 8GB), and a 128GB SSD.

Both tablets will include an Intel Core i5 processor, a 20-inch 3,840 x 2,560 (230 ppi) power-efficient IPS display with 176-degree viewing angles, three USB ports, HDMI out, an SD card slot and Windows 8.1 preinstalled. Users will also get the option of a desktop cradle, if they so fancy.

If you opt for the pro model, then you’ll be getting a device that weighs a rather hefty 2.7kg, whereas the standard model will weigh 0.4kg less, at 2.3kg.

We haven’t yet heard what the pricing will be for the two models, but we’re hearing that the standard model won’t ship until 2014.
