VIA Viega Tablet

With its highly-durable yet stylish design, the 10.1” VIA Viega Android tablet is an enterprise-grade device with great customization support providing maximum security, management and integration into your company’s network. Featuring a certified IP65 rating providing protection against spills, rain and dusty environments, shock and vibration protection to safeguard against drops of up to two meters, as well as a tempered glass panel to prevent shattered screens, the VIA Viega is designed from the ground up to survive the rigors of the showroom floor, warehouse, construction site or other such demanding environments. It is also designed to meet the MIL-STD 810G standard.


Powered by a dual core Cortex-A9 SoC with NEON technology and a Mali-400 dual processor GPU, the VIA Viega delivers outstanding multimedia performance, including hardware acceleration for stunning HD video playback. A rich set of wireless connectivity options including Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC as well as optional 3G for transportation or remote location scenarios means absolute flexibility in staying connected to your system. With a long-life polymer battery pack as well as an optional, highly-customizable docking station to provide extensive connectivity for external peripherals (from printers to Magnetic Stripe Card readers) and rapid charging capabilities, the VIA Viega ensures uninterrupted operation throughout an entire shift.

Other features include two Micro USB 2.0 ports (one for regular use and one for 12V DC-in/COM), one Micro SIM card slot, one Micro SD card slot, one Micro HDMI port, one earphone jack, a 2M front and optional 5M rear camera, one stereo speaker inside as well as a Pogo pin for connection to the optional docking station.


The VIA Viega combines the familiarity of the Android user interface with enhanced security features such as hardware assisted data encryption/decryption for quick and reliable deployment.

The availability of a full BSP (project-basis) creates a highly customizable Android 4.4.2 based OS allowing customers to quickly modify for their application specific scenarios. Additionally, the built-in VIA Smart ETK, including watchdog timer and an API for manageability such as access control and remote monitoring over a secure connection, further speeds development time.

Customers can also leverage our in-house Android expertise with a wide range of customization services available, including interface and framework modification; kernel level support for driver integration and optimization of legacy I/O for peripheral devices such as printers, bar code readers and Magnetic Stripe Card Readers (MSR); device management system support for Over-the-Air (OTA) software updates and remote device monitoring.


The VIA Viega has been designed with flexibility in mind to target customers looking to deploy tablets with enhanced ruggedness compared to consumer-grade devices and integrate custom apps for fast deployment for application-specific scenarios, expand cloud-based services with mobility, adopt a tablet with a high level of security, or to combine with legacy peripherals ideal for retail, industrial and transportation environments. The addition of the optional docking station allows for the creation of mobile signage, point of sale and kiosk deployments.
