Their latest model, GOLE F7, is closer to what we’d think of a traditional tablet, but the 10.1″ Cherry Trail tablet is fairly thick and rugged, with the company’s highlighting its “triple-proofing” capabilities, namely dust-proofness, waterproofness and resistance to shocks.

Some of the expected applications include UAV control panel, outdoor HMI, restaurant/retail point-of-sale (PoS), and any applications that may benefit from the rugged nature of the tablet, while not necessitating a lot of processing power.
The tablet runs Windows 10 Home or Pro, but some of the marketing materials we were given showed it running Android. I was asked not to show them, but maybe it’s also possible to make a custom order of sufficient volume with Android instead.
GOLE F7 appears to be available now at an undisclosed price. More details may be found on the product page.
