BenQ apparently intends to launch an Android-based tablet, the R100, in Q1 2011. The slate supposedly runs Android 2.2 on an 833MHz Samsung processor, and has a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 resistive touchscreen, 8GB of storage and an HDMI port.

There’s also mini USB, a microSD card slot, WiFi b/g/n and Bluetooth, and BenQ reckons the R100 will last for up to 12 hours of use on a single charge. It’ll come with a stylus, in China at least, to support handwriting recognition. BenQ is supposedly looking to put together digital content deals – including a “BenQ Book” ebook store – in time for the R100’s launch. No word on pricing at this stage.
