It cannot be used in mining. It has to be certified for dust explosive atmosphere

NIce Tablet! I wish all major manufacturers start making good tablets again this year. 2016 practically had no nameworthy tablet. Still no good successor for Sony Z4 tablet or Tab S or Note 10.1 (2014)!

my 10" wuawei cost me $100 and I put a heavy duty hardcase with a mini solar panel in the back that cost me only $10... and I use it under tough conditions and lots of dust, and rarely even had to charge it... if you want to trow your $$$$ away send it to me instead, or get 20 grls for that money, best weekend ever....
this is what it needs:
water prof (I ran out of Ziplock´s), a SIM!!!( there is no WiFi in a huge wherehouse or on the field), a hard case with silicone interior and a mini solar panel in the back, ( there are no outlets on the mines or the road), videoconference cameras and make it compatible with office or whatever type of documents management use...GPS would be nice
obviously we need to send the geeks who invent this stuff to the real world...get them out of the computer or whatever.

Finally, a tablet designed to survive my two year old nephew!

Meh. Panasonic is irrelevant in the smartphone and tablet industry anyway.

"Sometimes businesses need tough devices that can last for hours and can work in various conditions such as factories, roadwork or mining."

Really? That kind of business using android tablet? Are they gonna play some Pokemon Go during mining in deep underground? Isn't rugged laptop more practical?

Looks reasonable for the price, but the Intel Atom chipset... kills the mood.
