ViewSonic was among the companies that unveiled new tablets at CES 2012 this week and their new models included the 10e and 10pi units. The latter is a Windows unit, but we’re only here to deal with the Android model, ViewPad 10e, that was recently analyzed by the FCC and torn down for dissection purposes.
This is a budget Android slate with a price tag of $280 and you must know that this is a slate with a 10.1 inch display, supporting a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution. Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the OS of choice and other specs of the ViewPad 10e include a 1GHz Cortex A8 processor, 512MB of DDR3 RAM, 4GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot. WiFi and Bluetooth 3.0 are also available, as well a 1.3MP camera upfront. The tablet is around 9mm thick and has a 5400mAh battery.
This model and the ViewPad 10pi are already available on the US market from the time of the announcement at CEs. The teardown revealed a Vimicro processor and Hynix SDRAM in case you’re interested in such detailed component analysis.
