Hands-on with the Viewsonic Viewpad 7x

As we all remember Viewsonic wants us to know that they make Android tablets, and tonight we were able to get our hands on their upcoming Viewsonic Viewpad 7x, a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet. The 7x is the bigger brother to the 7e, which runs Gingerbread, and will be powered by a NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core 1GHx processor, and sports a 1024x600 capacitive touch screen. The tablet will have full Google Market support and will have an HDMI output and supports 1080p video playback.

Launching at only $379 it is quite a value for anyone looking for a 7-inch Honeycomb tablet. Hit the break to take a look at some still images, and check out the video above.

  • no price? :(
  • Sorry about that! I updated the post with pricing! $379
  • Can you make phone calls with it????
  • Nice that Viewsonic finally decided to make a tablet running a current version of Android... but the glaring lack of pricing information makes me doubt this will be anywhere close to the ballpark of the Vizio or Lenovo A1.
  • For me it would sure be nice if you could dual boot windows on it like one of their other tablets. I want to get away from using a regular pc or laptop, but i do need windows sometimes! well, its still nice to see Viewsonic produce a high end tablet with honeycomb on it!
  • The 7 inch Honeycomb tabs are finally starting to bring choice factors that IOS can't. Yaaaahhhh!!!
  • I have the viewpad 7 and like it a lot. My big question/issue is does this have wireless or not? The original 7 came as an unlocked GSM device, simply and easy, got a sim card, no contracts, and up and running.
    Maybe someone knows why it seems most new tablets don't include mobile wireless? To me the device is useless without it. I use it away from home and office (taxis) so wifi isn't enough...
  • ok I have 2 concerns... one. Where can i get one asap? and two. Does it work as a phone like the viewpad 7 does. Im currently using the viewpad 7 as my phone but its lack of internal memory pisses me off!!! Drew@globalcomputing.ca
