With Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet being a tablet that is offered at a relatively affordable price, many other manufacturers have started creating similarly priced tablets, hoping to attract customers with its price rather than its hardware, and adding to that list is the ViewSonic ViewPad 7e which we had reported on back in August.
The good news for those who were looking forward to the device is that its availability has been officially announced by ViewSonic, and it is expected to start shipping to North American markets by the end of the month for a affordable price of $200, similar to that of the Amazon Kindle Fire. As to whether its specs will match up or if it is to your liking is up to you to decide.
The ViewPad 7e will run on a 1GHz Cortex A8 processor with 512MB of RAM, 4GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot for memory expansion, a 3MP rear-facing camera and a VGA front-facing camera, and will run on Android’s Gingerbread 2.3 with ViewSonic’s ViewScene 3D interface. Not the most impressive of specs, but for those shopping on a budget, it looks like it should be able to get the job done.
