ViewSonic ViewPad 7 launch [Video]

ViewSonic announced official pricing and availability for their ViewPad 7 Android slate this morning, and we grabbed some hands-on time with the one production model running final software the company had on hand.  It's thankfully a slicker, more stable experience than the prototype we saw at IFA 2010, with Android 2.2 Froyo moving quickly on the ViewPad 7's 600MHz Qualcomm MSM7227 processor.  More details, together with benchmarks and pricing, after the cut.

Viewsonic Viewpad 7 pre-orders open for Nov 15 UK debut

Viewsonic Viewpad 7 pre-orders open for Nov 15 UK debut

If the fast-approaching Galaxy Tab is too rich for your blood, how about a 7-inch Android slate for a couple hundred less; Viewsonic's Viewpad 7 is roughly the same size as the Samsung, but has gone up for pre-order in the UK at £399.99 ($634) versus the Galaxy Tab's £529.99.  Your money gets you a lower resolution display (800 x 480 versus 1024 x 600) and a slower processor, but for many the cost saving - itself likely to increase as more vendors start offering the Viewpad 7 - might push the slate into impulse-buy territory.

ViewSonic ViewPad 100 dual-boot Android/Win7 slate hands-on

ViewSonic ViewPad 100 dual-boot Android/Win7 slate hands-on

ViewSonic's second tablet is more of a work-in-progress than the ViewPad 7, with the ViewPad 100 being a 10-inch dual-booting Android/Windows 7 tablet that's still undergoing plenty of finessing. With a 1024 x 600 two-point multitouch capacitive touchscreen, Atom N455 processor and 1GB of DDR3 memory, it makes for a reasonable netbook replacement (as long as you don't mind losing the hardware keyboard) but, thanks to the presence of Android, also doubles as a quick-loading multimedia player and general entertainment slate.

ViewSonic ViewPad 7 hands-on [Video]

With a sub-£350 price tag for a 7-inch Android 2.2 Froyo tablet, with 3G voice and data, a capacitive touchscreen and digital camera, we were wondering where the catch was with the ViewSonic ViewPad 7. Having used the compact slate at IFA 2010 this morning, we're still left searching for the compromise: on the face of it, you're getting much of what Samsung is delivering with the Galaxy Tab, only at (perhaps) half the price.

ViewSonic Viewpad 7 gets official: sub-£350 Android 2.2 tablet

ViewSonic has come clean on its first Android tablet, the 7-inch ViewSonic Viewpad 7.  Running Android 2.2 on a capacitive touchscreen, the Viewpad 7 has an integrated GSM/3G modem for phone and data connectivity, a front-facing VGA webcam and a 3-megapixel rear camera.  It can be used as a regular Android phone - albeit a big one - but of course it's really intended to replace your iPad.

Viewsonic's announcement that they were bringing an Android tablet to IFA 2010 next week basically added their name to a long list of manufacturers planning the same, but the accompanying image left plenty to be desired.  Happily Pocket-lint has managed to source a couple of better pictures of one of the Viewsonic slates, judging by the scale of the side-mounted headphone and USB ports the 7-inch ViewPad model.

ViewSonic ViewPad Android tablet & dual-booting Android/Microsoft slate tipped for IFA 2010

ViewSonic ViewPad Android tablet & dual-booting Android/Microsoft slate tipped for IFA 2010

ViewSonic has tipped its IFA 2010 hand, with the news that the company plans to bring two new tablets along to the show.  The 7-inch ViewSonic ViewPad will run Android and have dual cameras - one for photography, the other for video calls - together with WiFi and 3G, while a 10-inch model (currently unnamed) will dual-boot between Android and an unspecified Microsoft OS.  That could well be Windows Embedded Compact 7.

ViewSonic follows Apple’s lead with MWC phones & tablets

ViewSonic follows Apple’s lead with MWC phones & tablets

ViewSonic has outed its Mobile World Congress line-up of smartphones and tablets, and with the Android-powered ViewPhone 4s running a 3.5-inch 960 x 640 display it's clear the iPhone 4S is the company's key target. The ViewPhone 4s matches Apple's smartphone with a 326ppi IPS display, but squeezes in twin SIMs and a copy of Ice Cream Sandwich, along with a 5-megapixel camera and a front-facing VGA webcam. It's not the only new ViewSonic device, though; read on for more.
