VIA has launched its 10.1" Viega tablet, designed for business and enterprise users that need a durable tablet for use out in the field. Mobility is increasingly important for many businesses, but trying to take an Apple iPad or Samsung Galaxy Tab, for example, is risky business in factories, on job sites, and other locations where it could be damaged.

The tablet features a 1.2GHz dual-core ARM Cortex-A9 chip, 1GB DDR3 DRAM, Mali-400 DP GPU, and 16GB eMMC flash that powers a 10.1" LED blacklit screen. The tablet also has a micro SIM and micro SD card slot, 2 USB micro USB ports, 1 micro HDMI-output, along with an optional 2-megapixel front and 5-megapixel rear camera. The tablet runs Google Android 4.2, and can be customized based on customer needs. VIA also included Wi-Fi, 3G, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC connectivity support for its Viega tablet.

"As more and more enterprises seek to increase productivity and improve customer service by equipping their staff with mobile devices, they are quickly learning that it is critically important to deploy customized solutions built to withstand the demands of their target environments rather than standard off-the-shelf products," said Epan Wu, VIA Embedded Platform Division head, in a statement. "With its rugged design, enhanced security features, and customization support, the VIA Viega addresses this need and provides the longevity support that enterprise level customers require."
