Sometimes when reporting on new products the event of a product actually launching into market can sometimes get overlooked especially if the product is limited to only one part of the world. Such a case is what has happened with the launching of the BenQ R100 into the market in China.
The launch according to new reports actually happened back on February 15th for the 10-inch tablet. Local retailers in China sell the tablet for around 3100 Yuan or $470 USD. From the new report the tablet doesn’t appear to move into any other consumer markets around the world.
Initial info for the R100 from BenQ was first written on by us in late December of last year. At that time no images of the actual device were available but the main specifications, which have remained the same, were detailed.
Inside the BenQ R100 is an 833MHz Samsung processor and the tablet runs on a highly customized version of Google’s Android 2.2 Froyo OS. The OS is shown in the official BenQ product images and looks to have been tailored for a large screen tablet like the R100. You can see a gallery of product images for the R100 below along with a run-down of features if you missed them back in January.
