ViewSonic reportedly has a new 7-inch Android tablet lined up for debut at next week's Mobile World Congress and it's called the ViewPad G70. Sources familiar with the company's plans spilled the beans to Pocket-lint, dishing out most all the specs.

The ViewSonic ViewPad G70 will feature a 7-inch 1024 x 600 high-resolution screen, which means 169ppi pixel density. The processor specs have not been revealed, but it's believed to have 1GB of RAM and 4GB of onboard storage that can be expanded with a microSD card.

It will offer a variety of ports, including mini-HDMI, micro-USB, and mini-USB. Front and back cameras will also be included, although the rear-facing camera is said to have only a 2-megapixel resolution.

There's no official product shot of the tablet just yet besides the rendering above, which makes it look a bit boxier than its predecessors. However, it's expected to be ultra lightweight and will offer 3G connectivity.

It will run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, but will still have Viewsonic's own ViewScene 3D interface layered on top. Being a Google-certified device, it should offer all the normal Google services, including access to Android Market. Pricing could be around $350, but nothing's official at the moment. We'll find out more live from next week's MWC in Barcelona.
