ViewSonic’s been making Android tablets for nearly as long as anyone, although the company’s last few offerings haven’t been anything to write home about.
Now ViewSonic is starting to show off a new model called the ViewPad 100Q, and it’s a 10 inch tablet featuring a Rockchip RK3188 quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a high-definition IPS display. On paper it doesn’t look half bad.
The ViewSonic Viewpad 100Q feature 16GB of storage, a microSD card slot, and mini HDMI port. It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean software, measures about a third of an inch thick and weighs about 1.3 pounds.
The tablet’s expected to go on sale this month for around $230. In other words, for about the same price as a Google Nexus 7 tablet you’ll be able to pick up a 10 inch tablet with decent specs… although it probably won’t have the same kind of support or developer community as the Asus-built Nexus 7 tablet.
