Viewsonic Viewpad detailed

| Mobile Devices News | Posted: Aug 31, 2010 5:04 pm

With the iPad blowing up the sales charts and taking a bunch of sales away from the netbook market it's no surprise that there are hoards of new tablets coming soon to a store near you. Many people are waiting for tablets with Android as the operating system to start to hit the market rather than buy the locked down iPad from Apple.

A new tablet from Viewsonic has surfaced called the Viewpad 7. The Viewpad 7 runs Android for its operating system, specifically Android 2.2. The 7 in the name refers to the screen size of 7-inches and the tablet has integrated GSM/3G connectivity. Other features include a front facing camera for video calls and a 3MP rear camera for taking pics.

 

The 3G connectivity also means that the user can use the tablet like a giant Android phone. That is actually a nice feature for the user who only wants to carry a single device and wants a screen larger than the 4-inch max on Android smartphones today. The Viewpad also has WiFi, A-GPS, and a microSD card slot supporting up to 32GB cards. The thing will be shown off at IFA 2010 this week and will sell or the equivalent of $541 over in the UK.
