BENQ launches 7-inch Gingerbread slate R70 in Taiwan


BenQ has been rather quiet world-wide and rather aggressive in its home country Taiwan announcing a second tablet to reach Taiwanese consumers after their success with the 10.1-inch R100.

Following its bigger brother, R70 tablet features a 7-inch LED backlight LCD capacitive multi-touch screen display with a 800x600p resolution and a 4:3 aspect ratio, equipped with a 1GHz Cortex A8 processor, 2GB of internal memory storage, WiFi, a USB 2.0 port, HDMI output (up to 1080p full HD), microSD card slot expandable up to 32GB, 2 built-in speakers, a 3.5mm audio jack , and a 4400mAh rechargeable Li-on battery all powered by Google Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

BenQ R70 will reach Taiwanese shelves for a retail price of TWD $8,990 (approx US $308) and bundled with free trial accounts for 5TV audio and video entertainment platform and free on-demand movies.
