BenQ R100 slate bringing 12hrs of Android in Q1 2011

Dec 24, 2010

BenQ's Android tablet plans have been previewed ahead of the new year, with the company apparently launching their 10.1-inch Froyo slate in Q1 2011. The BenQ R100 has a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 resistive touchscreen - complete with a stylus for Chinese handwriting recognition - and runs Android 2.2 on an 833MHz Samsung processor.

Connectivity includes WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth, HDMI and mini USB, along with a headphones socket. There's also 8GB of onboard storage and a memory card slot, and BenQ is apparently lining up a digital content store for ebooks and magazines.

Although the resistive touchscreen is likely to dissuade some buyers, the R100's estimated battery life may still turn heads; BenQ expect the tablet to last around 12 hours on a full charge. No word on pricing at this stage.
