ViewSonic Releases 200-dollar ViewPad 7e
ViewSonic, a known name in the consumer electronics industry, is one of the makers who just released its new Android tablet. The ViewPad line of tablets now has its newest sibling, the ViewPad 7e.
This tablet sports Android 2.3 Gingerbread and surprisingly, it’s not using the default Android interface. Instead, it is using ViewScene 3D, which has holographic visual effects.
Under the hood of this sleek tablet is a fairly powered ARM Cortex A8 processor pegged at 1.0 GHz with 512 MB RAM. The storage space in this device may not be that much,but the 4 GB storage can always be expanded up to 32 GB through its microSD card slot.
Viewsonic made it sure that you will enjoy this device by putting several connectivity features. Wi-Fi 802.11 g/b/n is in place so you can smoothly browse the Web. Micro HDMI port is available so you can play back HD videos. A main and secondary camera are also on board so that you can take cool pictures and have a nice video chat experience. The tablet also is preloaded with Amazon Services for Android, which enables you to download tons of apps to your liking.
Seeing all the specs on this tablet may disappoint you in some way. This thing is not on par with the other tablets that have dual-core processors and higher display resolution. This is where the price-point consideration comes in.
The ViewPad 7e is priced at US$199.99, which makes the ViewPad 7e one of the cheapest tablets today. This device is certainly targeted for budget-conscious consumers, and with a price comparable to the Amazon Kindle Fire, ViewSonic seems to be positioning the tablet as a viable alternative.
The holidays are fast approaching and it’s high time to flood the market with new and cool devices that are eye-candy for consumers. The ViewSonic ViewPad 7e is one more drop to that flood. Have you been swept away by the rising Android flood lately?
