Another tablet is going to join Honeycomb tablets club this year. This time around it is from Viewsonic, as it brings a new tablet optimized operating system Honeycomb powered tablet, called as Viewsonic Viewpad 7x. According to the rumors, this tablet will be unveiled on May 31st at Computex in Taipei.
So, Viewsonic Viewpad 7x tablet will be the world’s first 7-inch tablet hitting the markets with Honeycomb OS pre-loaded on it, along with HTC Flyer and HTC EVO View 4G tablets. HTC Flyer is expected to release in late May, which is available for pre-order (Wi-Fi edition) now at Best Buy.
Specs wise, the Viewpad 7x will be powered by Nvidia dual-core Tegra 2 processor, sporting a 7-inch display, equipped with dual cameras (both front and rear facing), DLNA functionality, HDMI out, HSPA+ capability and the device will be weighing at the size of 380 grams.
The source hasn’t confirmed whether the Viewpad 7x will be having Android 3.0 or Google’s latest Android 3.1 Honeycomb (a major update to Android 3.0), which was announced at yesterday’s Google I/O event. But we’re not sure about the Honeycomb 3.1 thing, considering the bad reputation of ViewSonic when it comes to delivering updates. In fact, ViewSonic released Android 2.2 update to ViewPad 10 just a few days ago.
Price & Availability
The Viewsonic Viewpad 7x tablet is expected to hit the stores in June 2011 at an unknown price.
