VIA subsidiary admits sub-$100 doesn't perform

Posted on Friday, June 04 2010 @ 11:05:45 CEST by

The Inquirer reports you get what you pay for when you buy one of those upcoming sub-$100 tablets from VIA. The devices are cheap, but the performance is not smooth and the battery life isn't that great either.
Along the lines of pay peanuts don't get petaflops, the demonstration given to The INQUIRER of a VIA Technologies' silicon powered Smart Touch tablet showed sluggish response to inputs and performance that was noticeably slow and not smooth.

News of low cost tablets emerging from Asia in the last month spawned speculation that cheap and cheerful might win out. But instead this tablet demonstration obtained an admission of substandard performance. Wondermedia's assistant sales manager Sam Lin told The INQUIRER, "It is slow," adding that its battery life is four hours maximum with WiFi enabled. The unit will be priced as low as $98.
