ViewSonic outs ViewPad 7x Android tablet

During the Computex trade show in Taipei on Monday, ViewSonic officially took the wraps off of its ViewPad 7x Android tablet. We had heard mumblings of the device earlier this month, but now we know all of the ins and outs of the tablet: it runs Android 3.0.1 Honeycomb, is powered by a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, has HSPA+ connectivity, an HDMI-out port, rear and front facing cameras, and a 7-inch LED display with a 1024 x 600 resolution. We hope ViewSonic has plans to update the 7x to Google’s newer Android 3.1 operating system once it launches, but it’s not clear if that’s in the works right now. ViewSonic has not yet announced details on pricing or revealed a launch date, either. Hit the jump for the full release. More →

ViewSonic 7x to launch as first 7-inch Honeycomb tablet

ViewSonic is set to become the first company to launch a 7-inch tablet running Honeycomb, according to a new report on Wednesday. Pocket-lint cites anonymous trusted sources in claiming that the new tablet — referred to in the report as the ViewSonic 7x, though it would likely launch under the ViewPad brand — will be unveiled later this month at the annual Computex conference in Taipei. Reported specs for the upcoming Honeycomb tablet include a dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, front and rear-facing cameras, HSPA+ support, DLNA support and an HDMI port. The 7x is expected to launch in June in certain markets, though we doubt U.S. availability should be expected any time soon. More →
