When will be the Viewsonic ViewPad 7 release date? This cheap Android Tablet PC is coming out very soon. The Viewsonic Viewpad 7 Tablet PC release date is in October 2010. It’s the world’s first tablet computer that has full mobile phone functions! Think of this machine as large-screen smartphone running on Android OS 2.2 Froyo! Viewsonic said that their ViewPad 7 Tablet PC specs and features, in comparison with Apple’s iPad, are more superior and hopes that their product will compete with Apple iPad’s sales figures and overall market share.
The ViewPad 7 Tablet PC, as the name suggests will feature a capacitive multi-touch LED 7-inch display which makes it still pocket-friendly. Despite the small size, the display will feature an 800×480 widescreen resolution and it should be sharp enough for watching Hi-Def movies on the go. Android lovers should also salivate with this tablet because it will be shipping with Android OS 2.2 installed. This makes it way better than other Android tablets or Mobile Internet Devices (MID) that are still stuck in Android OS 1.5 or 1.6.
Since Viewsonic is aiming this product to steal customers from would be iPad-buyers, the ViewPad 7 Tablet PC will feature a VGA front-facing camera and 3MP camera at the back. Making it perfect for Fring’s video calling feature! It’s got all the features that you would expect from a netbook, WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth, USB ports, and Assisted-GPS are included. With Android Market’s 100,000 apps available, you get access to all the apps and games you will need. As an added bonus, this tablet is capable of taking hand-written notes!
Aside from being a worthy tablet computer, the ViewPad 7 is also embedded with phone features. You can use this device to make phone calls, send SMS or MMS just like you can with your iPhone 4 or Nokia phones. This is possible because the maker did integrate a full-size SIM slot that’s compatible with any service provider in the world. The phone-feature makes this tablet a very serious threat to the iPad or for that matter, to any other tablet products out there. Consumers will appreciate this, no need to carry around a phone when you got the ViewPad in your pocket!
Viewsonic also announced that ViewPad 7 tablet will first launch in the UK with a tag price of £350 (inclusive of VAT) this coming first half of October 2010. Other countries will soon follow with a suggested retail price of around $500 in the US and Canada.
