ViewSonic recently showed us their new budget Android tablet offering the ViewPad 7e, and today it is available for pre-order over at already. It was shown off at this years IFA 2011 and we have some hands-on video here for those interested in this budget friendly Android tablet.

It may not be the best tablet offering around, or come with Honeycomb but for $199 it will more than get the job done. What you get is a 7" 1024 x 600 resolution display, Android 2.3 Gingerbread, 1 Ghz cpu with 512MB of RAM, 4GB internal storage and a few cameras. We also have micro USB and mini HDMI-out is there too for those in need. Overall this is a good for those that don't need the best but would like a tablet.

Currently listed for pre-order at $199 on Amazon but they don't give any indication of a shipping or release date. We haven't heard anything else regarding this tablet from Viewsonic but from what we heard at IFA it would be available "next month" so it should be shipping soon enough.

    Did anyone proofread this text?  The device illustrated in the pictures (see image 2 of 7) does NOT have a micro USB port.  It has a mini USB port, just like the text on Amazon says.  Sad.

    I bought one of these the other day in the United Kingdom for £180 I was disappointed to find it is only Wifi and bluetooth enabled, I was misinformed it was 3g because I was kinda hoping it worked with 3g for this price. Despite this it is a nice looking tablet, feels nice in the hand, I am waiting to get a solid Wifi connection before giving my overall score out of 10, I will keep you informed.
