Do you think that tablet devices are slightly overpriced? If you do, there might be some good news for you as VIA expects $100 tablet devices that are powered by its chips to hit the US in the second half of 2010. VIA is planning to release five different models, priced from $100 to $150, which is still way below the $499 asking price of the cheapest iPad. Will such a low price point help it snatch away crucial market share from the iPad? It shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone to hear that these devices will be powered by Google’s Android OS. It’ll be interesting to see how these bargain tablet devices turn out, and we’re looking forward to seeing them.
