Not happy with the fact that the US Galaxy Tab can’t make phone calls out of the box? (Check out our Verizon Galaxy Tab unboxing) Then head on over to Amazon and pick up the ViewSonic ViewPad 7 (and by pick it up I mean wait for it to get in stock).
The ViewPad 7 is obviously a direct competitor to the Galaxy Tab, seeing as how they both have 7in screens. But how are the specs on the ViewPad 7? Let’s look:
- Android 2.2 tablet with 802.11 b/g WLAN and Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR, High resolution 800×480, brightness 350 cd/m2 contract 500:1
- Qualcomm MSM7227, 600MHz, 512MB DDR, 512MB NAND
- Capacitive multi-touch with G-Sensor, E-compass & Ambient light sensor
- Android Google Mobile Service (GMS) apps and Android Market over 100,000 apps, YouTube, Gmail, Voice search, GPS/A-GPS, Calendar, Documentation-To-Go & more
- Auto focus COMS 3MP camera in the rear & 0.3MP front camera, E-reader format support ? TXT, HTML, EPUB & PDF
- Size (LWH): 0.45 inches, 7.06 inches, 4.33 inches
- Weight: 13.28 ounces
So there you have it. It’s nice to see that the ViewPad 7 does have the Android Market, as a lot of the cheaper Android tablets that are being released don’t support it.
