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.

  1. I’ve had positive experiences with Viewsonic monitors in the past but never with tablets or anything else. Based on my experience with the monitors, I would be inclined to try their tablets. Now saying that, all of these companies need to vastly improve their community presence, support and advertising. They will only truly succeed if they can generate trust and faith in their brands with the community.

    1. As a previous owner of a GTablet, I would stay away from Viewsonic. Not that the tabby was horrible or anything and it was a first attempt, but from what you’ve said, they did absolutely nothing to generate trust or faith from me. Granted, it was likely Nvidia to blame, but Rockchip is about as bad as Nvidia so I don’t see a lot going for the tablet other than the price.

  2. I’ve been playing with the CX-919 that features this Rockchip CPU and I find it to be a very snappy and responsive performer thus far.
    Based on that experience I imagine this will be a really good runner.

  3. If I may, there seems to be a typo in the third paragraph with the “100W.” Otherwise, great article as always!
