    I recently purchased a Dragon Touch E71 (Android Kitkat 4.4) and thoroughly enjoy the multi-functionality of this unlocked phone/tablet but the low end screen detracts from the overall experience. I need something that I can use outdoors in bright sunlight. And, due to some international travel / websites, I'd like to run a Windows OS.

    So, is anyone is aware of a ~7" GSM unlocked phone/tablet that runs a Windows OS?

    The only one I know about is from below article.
    But it is probably only for the Chinese market and the spec's are also not great.

    If you want smaller than 7" you are looking at a Lumia 1520 which is a 6" phablet, or it's little brother the 1320 also a 6" phablet.
    Nokia Lumia 1320 vs. Nokia Lumia 1520 - GSMArena.com Both of these are discontinued for manufacturer but still get updates and support and are expected to move to Windows 10. Safest future-proof option is to get a Factory Unlocked regional or country variant and bypass carrier dependency on OTA pass along.

    More recently there is the 640 XL which is a 5.7" phablet. It can be had with or without LTE and also single or dual SIM depending on the configuration/variant. Microsoft Lumia 640 XL LTE - Full phone specifications

    All of the above are large screen phones and run Windows Phone OS...

    If you want full Windows Desktop, there are a whole bunch of 7" tablets to pick from. You just have to look for the right screen spec; IPS LCD, high resolution or ppi (pixels per inch). 7 inch windows tablet - Bing

    IMHO, IPS LCD offers better sunlight readability than AMOLED or OLED screens and once you get above 250ppi you are getting into the sweet spot for viewability. In any/all scenarios you may benefit from applying an anti-glare type of screen protector.
