While tablets may seem like a dime a dozen these days, their prices are hardly that. With companies competing for your hard-earned dimes, choosing a tablet can be a daunting task for the budget-minded.
Viewsonic is changing the tablet market with its Android (News – Alert)-based gadget, the ViewPad 7e. The price? A mere pittance of $199.99, making it an attractive and affordable piece of equipment.
The Viewsonic ViewTab 7e features a 7-inch display with 800×600 resolution, a 1GHz processor, 4GB of internal storage with microSD support for adding up to an additional 32GB, rear and front-facing cameras at 3 and 0.3-megapixels, respectively. Unfortunately, the ViewPad 7e won’t be running any type of tablet-based Android OSs such as Honeycomb or the upcoming Ice Cream Sandwich. Instead, the ViewPad 7e will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which was designed for phones.
