AAEON RTC-710AP ships with Windows 10 IoT Enterprise SAC (Semi-Annual Channel), but I initially received photos with Android, so either Android might be supported upon request, or the graphics designer used some old photos or screenshots…
The tablet is especially to be used in construction, factory, and field settings. As a side note, Ian reviewed the Higole F7G Plus rugged tablet earlier this year with a similar set of features and specifications, except it comes with a faster Intel Pentium N4120 Gemini Lake Refresh quad-core processor and a 10.1-inch touchscreen display. Ian tested with Windows 11 and Ubuntu 20.04, although audio and the fingerprint scanner did not work in the latter.
Samples of the RTC-710AP rugged tablet can be purchased now for $942.00 with an Intel N4200, 4GB RAM, a 64GB eMMC flash, an NFC (HF RFID) reader, GNSS (GPS + Galileo + GLONASS), and the hot-swappable battery. Additional information may be found on the product page.

When I just looked, site said only three left. To small consumer that’s a hot potato in your hands price.IMO
We are not the intended market 🙄
We can’t give consoomers a rugged tablet. It might not break fast enough.
People aren’t lining up for Samsung’s Active tablets so I’m guessing it’s just a demand thing.
RK, that’s a very valid fact. IMO
Most products from AAEON are for the B2B market, and only their UP product family is also suitable for individuals.
Thank you for the clarity.
