We’re going to see a lot tablets at CES this year, and Viliv, a tablet PC manufacturer, has just introduced two new ones to the world: the X7 and X10. According to the company, the tablets will enjoy the “longest battery life among existing Android devices”, and will rock a 1GHz Cortex A8 processor and the graphics will be handled by a Power VR SGX 540 GPU chipset.
The X7 and the X10 will have 3G, HSPA, EVDO, or WIMAX as connectivity options, and both come with support for full HD movie playback and HDMI-out for sharing contents via a television. Other features include Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, GPS, SD card slot, a rear 3MP camera and a front-facing 1.3MP shooter for video calling.
Apparently, the tablets will either be powered by Android 2.2 (ouch), or “Android 3.0” (I assume they’re meaning Honeycomb) – it’s yet to be decided by the manufacturer. I really hope they select the former. The difference between the X7 and X10 is unfortunately not mentioned in Viliv’s press-release, but since the screen sizes never are stated either, I assume those are 7″ and 10″ models. You can have a look at both tablets in the gallery below. The devices are expected to get an international launch in March 2011 and April 2011.
Anyone interested in these units, or is the lack of a dual-core Tegra 2 chip a deal-breaker?
