CeBit is full of interesting tablets many of which aren’t worth the screws they’re put together with, but Viota has come out with a tablet that so far looks like it’s worth the money…and maybe more! The Viota M970 is a.7 inch tablet with a IPS display, in case you’re not familiar that would be the same display as the Apple . Maybe with the HD coming out there is suddenly a huge surplus of the current iPad display’s on the market, who knows, but for $120 it’s certainly worth a look.
The IPS panel offers very decent viewing angles and has a very high brightness. It has a resolution of 1024 x 768 pixels and is powered by a Boxchip A10 single core ARM Cortex-A8 processor running at 1.5 GHz. The kicker is that for graphics it has the Mali400 an integrated graphics solution, which was the most powerful graphics solutions of 2011!
Under the hood, it’s got 512 MB or 1 GB of DDR3 RAM and 4 GB of flash memory. There is a MicroSD card slot and a space for an optional mobile broadband modem. There is a 5-megapixel camera on the back and a 2-MP cam on the front. The battery should provide decent battery life with 6000mAh battery. The operating system is the new Android 4.0 “Ice Cream Sandwich” and is actually running very fluidly. The unit also has an HDMI 1.3 output and a microUSB port. In addition, for the Japanese market it even offers an integrated TV tuner, which unfortunately does not work in Europe or the US.
It looks good to us! Check out the video below to see for your self.
