ViewSonic is making a series of Android tablets now, and I honestly wouldn’t mind getting my hands on one. They just announced the release of two tablets – the ViewPad 7 and the ViewPad 10. The ViewPad 7 is powered by Android 2.2 (Froyo) and features a 7-inch WVGA resolution touchscreen, a 3.0 megapixel rear camera, a .3 megapixel front camera for video chat, 512MB of RAM, a microSDHC slot, and over 10 hours of battery life. There’s also a full-sized SIM card slot as well as 3G voice connectivity, making VOIP and text messaging possible. It’ll be available for around $479 come late 2010.
As for the ViewPad 10, it has Android 1.6 and Windows 7 Home Premium with a 1.66GHz Intel Atom processor, 1GB of RAM, a 16GB SSD, microSDHC slot,a 1.3-megapixel webcam and a 10-inch 1024 x 600 resolution LED backlit multi-touch display. Microsoft Office is also included as well as Adobe Flash support and videoconferencing software. It will retail for $629, slightly cheaper than most Windows 7 tablets in the market. I don’t get why this has Android 1.6 instead of Froyo though.
