There aren’t a lot of tablets based in Intel Gemini Lake processor, and so far we only covered Alldocube Knote5 Gemini Lake tablet powered by an Intel Celeron N4100 processor and equipped with a 11.6″ display.
There’s now another option with NEC VersaPro VU-3 & VersaPro J VU-3 tablets with a 10.1″ display, powered by the same Celeron N4100 processor, but running Windows 10 Enterprise/Education/Pro, and shipping with a USB type C dock, and optional LTE connectivity.
All information is in Japanese, so it’s likely the tablet only targets the Japanese market, but let’s go through the specs:

The tablet is offered with Windows 10 Enterprise 64-bit, Windows 10 Education 64-bit, Window 10 Pro Education 64 bit, ow Windows 10 Pro 64-bit.
It ships with a lightweight AC adapter (USB-C), a rechargeable digitizer pen and, a warranty card, etc…
The tablet also comes with an optional USB-C dock as shown above, although it’s not clear how you are suppose to use both together since going with a USB type C cable does not see overly convenient, unless it’s designed to be used while the tablet is attached to the equally optional detachable keyboard.
Other accessories include two types of mice (light sensor / laser type), as well as an IP54 dust & waterproof protective cover with a hand handle at the back – as pictured below – which can be convenient for some specific use cases.
