The 7 inch Android tablet that ViewSonic had launched sometime ago has been well received in Europe. For those who prefer numbers, shipments of the tablet is peaking at 50,000 to 60,000 units a month, as Digitimes points out. While these figures may look good, its way below what the toppers in the segment such as the Galaxy Tab is up to. Samsung recently reported having shipped 2 million Galaxy Tabs in 3 months.
Meanwhile Viewsonic, whose mainstay is its LCD monitor making business has launched ViewPad 10 – the 10 inch tablet running Android 2.2 though company sources informed it will be upgradeable to the upcoming Android 3.0 Honeycomb once it becomes available.
Also, the ViewPad 10 comes with some interesting configuration which includes Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, 512 MB RAM, 16 GB of internal memory along with support for 1080p video. The tablet features a 10 inch 1024 x 600 pixel display and is Adobe Flash 10.1 compliant.
