New Android, Windows tablets from Viliv to be on display at CES
It’s a given that the closer we get to CES, the more “product X to be shown” news we’re going to hear about before we actually see it. Viliv is getting in on the pre-newsing, announcing that they will be showing off two new Android tablets (the X7 and X10), and a new Windows 7 tablet (the X70).
The Android models will be 7 and 10 inches respectively, with the X10 sporting a 1366×768 display (it was mentioned here back in June). The X7 is touted as having ‘anywhere connectivity’ which has led to speculation that it could include a 3G adapter — or Viliv could simply mean ‘anywhere you have Wi-Fi’. 3G would certainly be better, since that often means a device will have official access to the Android Market.
As for the X70, Viliv claims it will be the lightest, slimmest Windows 7 tablet in the world. Viliv already makes the X70EX which weighs less than a pound and a half and is only .8 of an inch thick, so the X70 should be quite the featherweight.
