Snakebyte Intros Vyper Docking Gaming Tablet, Controllers
Revealed at CES 2014, Snakebyte's new Android-based Vyper gaming tablet allows users to instantly go from their tablet (1280 x 800 pixels) to a large panel display (at 1080p) via docking station. There's no need to exit the game, as the transition is seamless. A simplified user interface makes it even easier to select your favorite game or application.
The 7" tablet includes a 1.6 GHz quad-core processor, 2-megapixel camera, 1 GB DDR3, and 8 GB flash storage. A microSD slot allows users to expand storage by up to 64 GB, and the device includes HDMI plus two USB ports.
Two Vyper packages include the Media Edition (with remote) and Gaming edition (with remote and gamepad). The controllers use a Bluetooth interface and are most useful after the Vyper has been docked.
Flipping the remote reveals a QWERTY keyboard, while the game controller also hides digital/analog mode switches.
