The Viota M970 9.7″ Android ICS tablet highlights its affordable price and vivid IPS Display. But that’s just a teaser of what you can actually get from the slate. In fact, we are here to tell you more about the tablet’s features and specs.
Announced at the CeBIT 2012, the world’s largest trade fair for digital IT products, the Viota M970 Android ICS tablet will be made available in a month or two for a very affordable price of $120. Now, you might think that since it will be sold for a cheaper price, it will also be loaded with specs that are not even worth your dime. Well, you might be surprised to know that the 9.7″ Tablet is a true delight. It’s good for your pocket and also good for your eyes!
You see, the Viota M970 is a 9.7″ tablet that runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich version 4.0. There may be a lot of Android ICS tablets out there but we do not know any that can offer you with a vivid and color-rich IPS capacitive touchscreen display with 1024 x 768 pixels of full screen resolution. If you’re not familiar with IPS, you should know that the Viota M970 uses the same display as the famous iPad 2. Oh well, considering that Apple has just announced its iPad 3 (aka ‘the new iPad’) with Retina Display, the impact of tablets with IPS display will be lesser than before. Still, IPS Technology is a very impressive technology that will eventually allow you to view your images and movies with life-like colors. Considering the tablet’s price, you’ll certainly be tempted to get one. Come to think of it, it’s even more affordable than the Amazon Kindle Fire.
But that’s not all. You’ll be amazed to know that this slate packs a high quality 5 mega pixel camera that you can use for taking a lot of photos. And, if you do want to make some face-to-face chats with your friends and relatives, you can take advantage of the Viota M970 Android ICS tablet’s 2 mega pixel front facing camera. Usually, when we speak of budget-friendly tablets, we think of those with 3MP rear camera and front facing VGA cameras but this slate is very different. You’ll get a couple of high-end specs for less. As a matter of fact, the tablet is currently being powered by a 1.5GHz single core Boxchip A10 ARM Cortex A8 processor with Mali 400 Graphics.
Given the above specs, we can certainly say that the Viota M970 belongs to the category of high-end tablets. It 512MB DDR3 RAM may not be much but pretty much capable of handling your games and applications. The tablet can also take pride of its 32GB of external storage (via micro SD card slot) and 4GB of internal storage. It will also be equipped with a very reliable 6000 mAh battery that goes alongside with its micro USB and HDMI 1.3 ports. Japanese users will also have the chance to use the slate’s built-in TV tuner to satisfy their cravings for local Japanese TV stations.
