Yet another peripherals manufacturer joins the tablet game. BenQ, the Taiwanese manufacturer known better for their laptops, monitors and projectors have announced their new Android tablet – the BenQ nReader R100.
The specifications are not something out of the ordinary. This Android 2.2 device will feature a 10.1″ resistive touchscreen display at 1024×600 pixel resolution and will run on a 667MHz Samsung ARM-based CPU. There are ports to let you output HDMI video content and support for Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity are available as well. In addition to this, the device will also come pre-installed with a custom media software that will let you read ebooks, play games, music and movies.
No price is announced, but I think the 667MHz processor and a resistive touch screen are definite deal breakers. Though a cheap tablet running Android 2.2 is definitely going to be welcome, there is enough competition in this space for BenQ to stay a cut above the rest. What do you think?
