ViewSonic has finally let the cat out of the bag by announcing the release dates (or windows) and price points for its handful of upcoming tablets.
First up is the ViewPad 10pro, which runs both Android OS 2.3 (Gingerbread) and Windows 7 and actually had a very brief limited run last month. Packing a 1.5 GHz Intel Atom Z670 CPU and 2GB of memory, the ViewPad 10pro has many standard features like a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, and HDMI port, and a microSD slot. For those who didn’t manage to snap up the dual OS tablet during its limited availability, they can get their hands on it in just a few days when it hits shelves September 5 for 499 Euros or approximately $714 for a Wi-Fi only version.
There is also the ViewPad 7x, a 7-inch tablet running Android OS 3.0 (Honeycomb) with Viewsonic’s custom 3D ViewScene skin. It will be powered by an Nvidia Tegra 2 chip, feature 8GB of storage, and will weigh in at 0.84 pounds. While a hard release date for the 7x has yet to be disclosed, it’s due out before the end of the month at a price point of 349 Euros or $499.
Finally, for those with somewhat shallow pockets, there is the entry-level priced ViewPad 7e. Though details are still light on the specs beyond its somewhat bizarre 4:3 aspect ratio, the 7e is due out sometime in Q4 for a (sort of) meager 169 Euros or $242.
