New, 2 comments

Snakebyte Vyper, Sunflex's entertainment-centric Android tablet, launched in Europe today and is slated to launch in North America on Jan. 31 from $199, the company announced.

The Android 4.2 operated Snakebyte Vyper features a 7-inch HD-display and a quad-core 1.6 GHZ processor. Through the tablet's custom TV dock, users can play titles featured on the Google Play Store, use apps or watch television programs on their TV. Users can also navigate the smart TV interface and play games using the device's wireless controller or the Airmouse remote, which features a built-in keyboard.

Along with the titles available on the Google Play Store, users also have access to software on the Snakebyte Vyper game hub that offers apps and games optimized for the device.

"With Vyper, we've created a custom UI for the television, a dock, an airmouse for navigation and casual games, and a wireless game controller so users and families can get the most of their Android apps whether on the move or relaxing in front of their television," Sunflex's vice president of business development Nicki Repenning said in a prepared statement.

The gaming edition, which includes the tablet, Airmouse remote, wireless game controller, TV docking station and HDMI cable, will be available for $249.99. The media edition will retail for $199.99 and consists of the tablet, Airmouse remote, TV docking station and HDMI cable. North American consumers will be able to purchase the device from Gamestop.com, BestBuy.com, Walmart.com, Amazon.com, and Newegg.com once it launches in the region.
