The ViewSonic ViewPad 7e tablet is a 7 incher model with Android on board and a very affordable price tag of $200. This device is coming in October, that means that it has a week to go in order to get an official launch. We’re dealing here with a model priced just like the Amazon Kindle Fire and in the following lines we’ll find out if it’s worth the trouble.
The ViewPad 7e will come to North America in the time frame mentioned above and it should support a 800 x 600 pixel resolution on the screen I mentioned. Among the specs there’s also a 1GHz processor, 4GB of storage, a micro HDMI port and a 3 megapixel camera at the back. Upfront we find a 0.3 megapixel ca for videocalling purposes and the specs list also includes a microSD card slot for up to 32 GB of extra storage.
The price of $200 sounds great in comparison to slates such as the Motorola Xoom, that launched months ago with a $800 price tag. ViewPad 7e also comes with WiFi b/g/n and it’s not yet clear if we’ll ever see a 3G version launched in the States.
