just launched on the market today and is available for both phones and tablets (not just Honeycomb either). They are offering both versions for a discount and only $1.99 til Saturday so hurry and get it while its hot (and cheap).
ViewBook 730. The tablet has a 7-inch screen and runs Android 2.2 for the operating system. The little tablet has access to Amazon Apps, YouTube and all the other places you expect an Android tablet to access. The tablet supports the playback of 1080p content on your TV or other display via HDMI output and it has Viewsonic RiteTouch technology that allows both pen writing on the tablet and touch capability.
Asus Padphone. Later on, as it becomes official, the group AlwaysInnovating accused Asus of copyright infringement. Notion Ink Adam sales open again, and this time the promise of Honeycomb June 27 is there to sweeten the deal.
ViewSonic has refreshed its Android tablet range, with the new 7-inch ViewPad 7x offering Honeycomb on a 1024 x 600 touchscreen, while the 10.1-inch ViewPad 10Pro gives a choice of Froyo or Windows 7 on an Intel Oak Trail Atom processor. The ViewPad 7x - which leaked earlier this month - has a Tegra 2 processor and twin cameras, along with along with HSPA+, HDMI and DLNA support. It weighs 380g and has a microUSB port and an LED flash. As for the ViewPad 10Pro, that has a 1.5GHz Intel Oak Trail Z670 processor along with WiFi, 3G, Bluetooth and all the usual features you'd expect from an x86 tablet. Unfortunately ViewSonic's decision to go with Android 2.2 rather than Honeycomb looks likely to hurt the 10Pro's reputation. No word on pricing or release dates at this stage. [via SlashGear]
Viewsonic's Android tablets attempts haven't quite hit the mark yet, but the company is readying a new Android Honeycomb model that could well change all that. The Viewsonic 7x is, Pocket-lint has heard, headed to Computex 2011 at the tail-end of this month, with a 7-inch touchscreen as the name suggests. Like other Honeycomb tablets we've seen, it'll pack NVIDIA's 1GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor, twin cameras - front and back, though no word on how many megapixels yet - and integrated HSPA+ WWAN. There's also the somewhat mysterious "greater support on the connectivity front" which we're assuming means WiFi, Bluetooth and USB along with the HDMI port, at the very least. DLNA and a distinctive patterned back panel round out the key specs of this 380g slate, which is expected to hit retail in June 2011. No word on pricing at this stage.
we reported that HBO to GO would be coming to the Android Market. The we didn't know when it would be coming to Android, although it was strongly hinted at May 2nd in their commercials. Well, HBO has released it early and the app is now live. Users who subscribe to the PayTV service can download it to most Android devices.
pushed out a firmware update for the GTab, which adds Adobe Flash support among other things. The new software - available as an OTA update - also adds to the GTab's productivity abilities, as it throws USB keyboard and mouse support onto the Android slate. There's also support for an external docking station, the addition of new international cities in the Weather app, and a few new languages supported. The OTA update should be automatically offered in the notification area. Meanwhile, if you're more into raw speed then it's worth checking out the 1.4GHz/1.6GHz overclock we wrote about yesterday.
