Casio Confirms Release for Its VX Android 4.0 Tablet
Casio is joining the party of tablet manufacturers with a new slate that runs on Android Ice Cream Sandwich. Called the VX, this one is targeted at shop owners and not regular consumers, mainly for use by their retail staff. Currently, Casio is focusing its efforts in developing sale apps via the Casio Business Portal for the VX users.
It is designed to be compatible with card readers as well as phones that support Near Field Communication to facilitate marketing. It is also made of durable material that keeps the device protected against splashes and drops. In fact, one can drop the device for up to one meter and it will remain intact.
The VX has a 10.1-inch display yet its resolution is still unknown. It also has GPS and dual cameras: one with 5 MP and another with 2 MP. Its storage capacity is 16 GB.
Two models, featuring two battery types are available: one with 5000 mAh and another with 7000 mAh. Battery life is expected to be around 12 hours.
The VX was previewed during the Retail Business Technology Expo, althought its full specs have not been revealed.
The VX is expected to be pricier than the Apple iPad.
