Introducing the Snakebyte Vyper Android Tablet

There's a new Android tablet in town - the Vyper, from Snakebyte, who claim the Vyper to be "the world's first comprehensive multifunction tablet," combining features of tablets, gaming consoles and smart televisions. You can take Vyper with you, using it as an Android tablet with a 7" screen or use its docking station to connect it to your television to use the Vyper as a console or smart TV, piping the video output from the Vyper to the television.

The Vyper comes with the docking station, a full-sized controller and something they call the "Air Mouse." The Air Mouse looks like a remote with a cursor control in the center... on one side. Flip it over, however, and there is a QWERTY keyboard, allowing you to type from the comfort of your couch. This Air Mouse allows you to play some games that would normally require touch screen control as if they were console games.
