California-based manufacturer ViewSonic is no stranger to the tablet game. In recent months we’ve met the ViewPad 10pro, ViewPad 7x and ViewPad 10e. It’s all a rich tapestry of tablet goodness. Ahem.
Not to be outdone by the growing number of manufacturers going down the budget tablet route, ViewSonic will sell the spanking new ViewPad e70 for even less than the Amazon Kindle Fire.
The ViewSonic ViewPad e70 was announced at CES 2012, and while many of the details are still a bit vague at this early stage, we do know that the Ice Cream Sandwich-rockin’ tablet will go for just $169.99.
Confirmed ViewSonic ViewPad e70 specs include a 7in display, a modest 1GHz processor, 4GB internal storage, 1080p HDMI output and some sort of front-facing camera.
"ViewSonic is committed to delivering advanced technology designed with the consumer in mind," bawled Michael Holstein, ViewSonic’s vice president of business development.
"Featuring the latest Android operating system, along with leading apps and services for entertainment content, the ViewPad E70 continues the ViewSonic tradition of bringing feature-rich products to new markets."
Estimated arrival date for the ViewSonic ViewPad e70 is “late Q1”. For those in the States, at least.
