ViewSonic is no stranger to the tablet game, but has forsaken the dual-OS action it seems to love so much in favour of a simple Gingerbread (Android 2.3) effort.
For some bizarre-o reason, ViewSonic appears to be obsessed with making all sorts of ludicrous claims about the ViewPad 10e’s slimness, describing it as “paper thin”. Don’t be silly, guys.
“Measuring 9.1mm thin, this powerful computing device can easily slip into a folder, looks at home amongst a stack of papers or can just sit on a coffee table, waiting to impress.” Ahh, you really have to love marketing talk. It's thicker than the iPad 2.
Other specs include a 1Ghz Cortex A8 Processor, 9.7in IPS LCD 1024x768 display, 4GB internal storage (expandable), micro USB and mini HDMI ports, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, and 5,400mAh battery offering 200 hours standby time.
Not bad for a tablet that’s being touted as a budget device. Not bad at all.
ViewSonic is keeping tight-lipped about an exact release date, though “early November” – as some suggest – doesn’t seem too far-fetched.
