ViewSonic has given us a 7-inch Android tablet before as the ViewPad 7, but their latest update to that model brings along Android Honeycomb and a dual-core processor. The ViewSonic ViewPad 7x was on show at Computex this year and we stopped by to grab a look. The Honeycomb tablet gets a custom interface known as Shell 3D. It mostly works to pretty up the homescreen interface of Honeycomb. Oddly, it only works in portrait mode, which seems odd for a tablet. Hopefully this is merely an early build of the software and landscape could be implemented in the future. The ViewPad 7x doesn’t do much to dazzle, but it gets the job done. Quick, compact Honeycomb.
