ViewSonic to launch Windows 8 tablet PCs in 2Q12

ViewSonic plans to launch Windows 8-based tablet PCs in the Taiwan market in the second quarter of 2012 at the earliest, according to Max Liu, product marketing director of ViewSonic Asia Pacific.
The Windows 8 model will come with a 10-inch display with high resolution initially, Liu noted.
ViewSonic offers a complete lineup of tablet PCs in the Taiwan market, with its ViewPad 10 being the first model supporting both Windows 7 and Android in the local market, Liu claimed.
An Android-based model, the ViewPad 10e, which comes with a 9.7-inch IPS panel and supports Wi-Fi, is currently available at NT$8,990 (US$304), compared to a range of NT$14,000-15,000 for comparable models offered by rival vendors, Liu indicated.
The company plans to roll a 3G-version of ViewPad 10e in March with prices ranging NT$11,900-13,900, adding that 2-3 new tablets will be launched in the second quarter, including those operating on Android 4.0.
ViewSonic shipped about 6,000 tablet PCs a month in the Taiwan market in 2011 and took the third-rank title in the segment. Buoyed by the launch of new models, Liu expects ViewSonic's share in the local market to continue to expand in 2012.
Expect to see lots more news from Viewsonic at Cebit soon.
