BenQ nReader R100 Android Tablet Features Reviewed

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?
