Viewsonic has finally decided to set sail for the US with the Viewpad 7 and Viewpad 10 tablet PCs for the first time since after they was formally launch at the IFA in September. As you might have already guessed, the numbers following the tablet name are an indication of their screen sizes. While the Viewpad 7 is scheduled to hit markets later this month with a price tag of US$479, the same for the 10 inch Viewpad 10 is likely to be around at the beginning of next year, while price is expected to be around US$628.
Among the two, the Viewpad 7 comes with a 7 inch capacitive multi-touch display, 512 MB of internal storage, a microSD memory card slot, the latest Android 2.2 operating system along with other features like integrated cameras on the front and back, Wi-Fi, built-in 3G modem and so on. ViewSonic is claiming unhindered access to the Android market with the ViewPad 7.
As for the larger ViewPad 10, it’s for those who’s like to have both Windows and Android as the tablet can dual boot both Windows 7 as well as Android 1.6. The latter might not be to the liking of many as its Android 2.2 and beyond that is being talked about right now and version 1.6 is quite ancient on that count. The tablet though boasts of a 1.66GHz processor, 16GB SSD and a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution.
With a keen interest in tech, I make it a point to keep myself updated on the latest developments in the world of technology and gadgets. That includes smartphones or tablet devices but stretches to even AI and self-driven automobiles as well, the latter being my latest fad. Besides writing, I like watching videos, reading, listening to music, or experimenting with different recipes. Motion picture is another aspect that interests me a lot and maybe I’ll make a film sometime in the future.
