The folks over at the FCC are most probably enjoying themselves with the kinds of job they have – checking out devices even before they’re ready for a mass market release. Among the devices that saw action at the FCC recently would be the Viewsonic ViewPad 7x tablet device that picked up nods of approval for its Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities.
The kind of hardware that the ViewPad 7x packs is pretty ordinary- – we’re talking about a simple 7″ form factor at 1,024 x 600 resolution, Android 3.2 Honeycomb (at least that takes care of any form of future operating system updates, a dual-core 1GHz Nvidia Tegra 2 processor, a 2-megapixel camera at the front and a higher resolution 5-megapixel camera behind, not to mention 8GB of internal memory.
The slated $379 price point is far from what the $199 Kindle Fire offers, so it would be interesting to see this mid-range tablet fit into the grand scheme of things as it is released later this month.
