VIA announces Android-based tablet

The famous electronics maker VIA Technologies has entered one more market – that of tablets. The first VIA tablet is called Viega and is completely suitable for work in unfavorable conditions as it meets all IP65 requirements and is both dust- and water-proof. In addition to that the VIA Viega can withstand drops from up to 2 meters.

The new VIA product comes with a 10.1-inch display at 1280 x 800 pixels and includes a VIA processor with two Cortex-A9 cores, an ARM Mali-400 GPU and 1 GB of DDR3 SDRAM. The device also offers 32 GB of internal memory, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC connectivity, a front 2 MP camera and integrated speakers. A rear 5 MP camera, 3G and GPS connectivity are optional.

The tablet provides opportunities for upgrade as it also comes with micro-SIM, microSD and micro-HDMI ports and there are two USB 2.0 ports too. Viega runs Android 4.2 and measures 265 x 171 x 12 mm for total weight of 750 grams.

It is not clear how much VIA Viega will cost now but given its sturdiness the new tablet is unlikely to be cheap.
