The PWS-870 is a 10.1 in. PC with an Intel Core i3/i5/i7 processor. It features high-brightness, multi-touch sunlight-readable screen.

Customizable, the tablet PC features the latest advanced communication options, including 4G LTE and 802.11 ac.

The glass is second generation Gorilla Glass, and the 10.1 in. display has options for high-brightness (800cd/m2), capacitive-touch, sunlight-readable use, as well as for a digitizer pen.

The PWS-870’s built-in dual camera (front and back), a 1D/2D barcode scanner, NFC and RFID.
