ViewSonic View Pad Android Tablet Coming Soon For $200

View Sonic announced earlier this week the release of a new Android based tablet, VewPad 7e. The new tablet is running on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, smartphone OS, and analysts already speculate about the ViewPad 7e’s outdated OS, which could push customers to choose Amazon’s Kindle Fire, which has the same price tag.

The price range points to a device meant for the entry level users and means that View Sonic doesn’t intend to touch some of the market share owned by Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 or Apple’s iPads. However, the specifications have a good chance of attracting the users. The ViewPad 7e sports a 7-inch display with an 800 x 600-pixel resolution, a 1GHz processor, 4GB of storage, a micro-HDMI port. The user interface features intriguing 3D “holographic visual effects,”.

The tablet also has two cameras, but without spectacular features: a 3-megapixel camera, a 0.3-megapixel front-facing camera for video chats. A microSD card slot allows the users to add up to 32GB of additional storage. Also ViewPad 7e supports 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi networks.
There is no news about a carrier agreement that would allow ViewSonic to release a 3G version in the near future on the US market. Vew Sonic press release that announces the new device promises “Created with the economical consumer in mind, while offering the newest and most in-demand features, the ViewPad 7e is ViewSonic’s latest addition to the successful ViewPad tablet lineup.” Michael Holstein, vice president of business development, ViewSonic hopes to allure the customers with a confident statement “Our ViewPad tablet line offers a robust assortment of solutions designed to meet every individual’s mobile computing needs – spanning from business to entertainment.”
