VIA has this week unveiled a new addition to their range of rugged Android tablets with the launch of the new VIA Viega which has been designed to be used at POS stations and where a normal consumer tablet might not last too long.
The VIA Viega is fitted with a touchscreen 10 inch display offering a 1280 x 800 pixel resolution and is powered by a 1.2 GHz ARM Cortex-A9 dual-core processor supported by 1GB of RAM and Mali-400 graphics.
The rugged Android tablet comes supplied running Google’s Android Jelly Bean 4.2 operating system and is equipped with 2 x micro USB ports, 1 x micro HDMI port and 2 megapixel front facing camera for video calling, together with a 5 megapixel rear facing for video and photographs. Epan Wu, Head of the VIA Embedded Platform Division, VIA Technologies explains :
“As more and more enterprises seek to increase productivity and improve customer service by equipping their staff with mobile devices, they are quickly learning that it is critically important to deploy customized solutions built to withstand the demands of their target environments rather than standard off-the-shelf products,”
