ViewSonic Brings Out the ViewPad Family at IFA, Details Revealed

ViewSonic will soon be launching a few new Android tablets into the wild, and they took some time at IFA to go over what we can expect. Three models in total will hit shelves by the end of the year, with the ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro the first among the bunch. The dual-boot Android 2.3/Windows 7 slate will be available September 5h at a price of  €499 ($714) for the WiFi-only version. It will be followed shortly by the ViewPad 7x, a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet with custom 3D ViewScene interface. We previously caught the Android 3.0 skin running on the 7x’s Tegra 2 processor back at Computex. A specific release date wasn’t mentioned but it should be out by the end of the month priced at  €349 ($499). One more tablet is scheduled to land by the end of Q4, the ViewPad 7e, a budget oriented slate with a 4:3 aspect ratio, though few other details are available. It will retail for  €169 ($242).

      lol, they made the first dual core nvidia tegra 2 tablet. Atleast I think it was the first, however it was released last november and actually has the largest dev community of any tablet. Its call the viewsonic gtablet son. It is better than anything apple can offer.

        the only problem is price. that’s what keeps android tablets from moving. i don’t disagree that this (as are others) is better than apple offerings; however, the way it plays out in the market is that people will shell out $$ for something with a picture of fruit on it but won’t spend comparable amounts on a higher quality product that lacks the branding.

        it seems, sadly enough that someone is going to have to take a major loss (financially) in order to get the android brand the love it deserves.
