BenQ is expected to introduce its R100 tablet in early 2011. This 10.1" device will use a 833MHz ARM-based processor from Samsung and will run Google's Android operating system. The R100 will sport a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution and promises a battery life of up to 12 hours when the device is used for e-reading. Pricing is still unknown.
It can also be used for note-taking because users can write on the touchscreen with a stylus, in English or Chinese, both simplified and traditional characters.
The R100 will come with 8GB of internal storage as well as an SD slot able to handle up to 16GB SD cards. BenQ added mini-USB and mini-HDMI ports to the device as well as a 3.5-millimeter earphone jack.
It works with Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and Bluetooth wireless data transfer protocol.
The R100 is 15mm thick and is 191mm by 244mm in size. It weighs 720 grams.
