ViewSonic ViewPad 7e sub-$200 Android Tablet Lined Up for North America

October 26, 2011, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

ViewSonic’s sub-$200 Android tablet is scheduled to reach the markets by the end of this month. The company announced the slate for North America specifically.

The ViewPad 7e runs on Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and it sports a 7-inch display with a resolution of 800×600 pixels. The tablet carries a user interface with 3D “holographic visual effects” that promises an intuitive home screen layout.

Under the hood, there is a 1 GHz processor for power, 4GB of internal storage and a microSD card slot for an additional 32 GB.

Shooting pairs comprise a 3-megapixel rear camera and a 0.3-megapixel front camera for video chats.

The ViewPad 7e supports 802.11b/g/n WiFi, and though it’s not confirmed, we might get to see a 3G version later on.

The price is accommodating and when compared to more expensive tablets like the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the ViewPad is more wallet-friendly.

But the fact that the slate runs outdated Android puts it at a disadvantage. That would probably make it stay behind the more powerful Amazon Kindle Fire, which is also on shelves for the same price.
