While Tigerdirect is desperately selling the much newer and bigger Viewsonic G-Tablet 10 for $300, J & R is also doing a special sale on the Viewsonic Viewpad 7 Android Tablet PC. Instead of the original $549 price tag, J&R is now selling the Viewsonic Viewpad 7 tablet for a very low price – only $399 with free ground shipping! Check it out at http://www.jr.com/ for more info.
While smaller and having an older single-core 600MHz Qualcomm processor, the Viewpad 7 is still selling higher because of its unlocked 3G support! This is an all-in-one tool for surfing the net and making calls. The Viewpad 7 runs on Android 2.2 and has full support for Android Google Mobile Service Apps (GMS). It’s also fully compatible with Google Android Market Place.
J & R is selling the unlocked Quadband GSM and 3G HSDPA-compatible version of the Viewpad 7. The 600MHz processor might be old but it has 512MB of RAM to help it. The Viewpad 7 has a smaller 7-inch capacitive multi-touch LCD screen that’s also large enough for watching 720p HD videos. Lastly, it has GPS/AGPS built-in so you can use it as a navigation device.
If you don’t like the slow CPU of this one and you don’t need 3G and GPS, then better buy the newer and cheaper Viewsonic GTablet 10 with Android 2.2 OS (Froyo) tablet PC model.
