ViewSonic ViewPad 7x Android 3.2 Tab Hands-on [Video]

ViewSonic is bringing their own 7" Android 3.2 Tab to the market and we have some details for you. Hanging out at IFA 2011 the team was able to get some hands-on video with the device as well as all the juicy details. We mentioned the ViewPad 7x earlier today but now we have pictures and video for you to check out after the break.

I must warn you the video has a bit of background noise as it was an extremely busy event over in Berlin, Germany, today so you'll have to bear with us but the details are audible. What we have in the ViewSonic ViewPad 7x is an Android 3.2 Honeycomb tab with an NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual-core CPU at 1.0 Ghz, 1GB of RAM and comes with an 8GB and 16GB flavor. We have a 7" 1024 x 600 resolution display, a rear facing 5 mp camera with LED flash (720p video) with 2 MP front for video chat.

For connectivity, we have micro-HDMI for 1080p video out, micro USB, stereo speakers, and a micro SD slot to expand storage all neatly on the bottom of the device. ViewSonic has said it will offer a Wi-Fi only model first but they do plan to bring a 3G HSPA+ model to market soon. I really like the Viewscene 3D UI they've added, it looks quite spiffy and you can check it out with the video and pictures below.

Sadly they still mention that extremely steep 349 Euros price tag which is around $499 USD, a price that should absolutely be lower for a 7" Tablet. We should see the ViewSonic ViewPad 7x Android 3.2 Tab hit the streets in late September.

    $499 for wifi only?  Did the Touchpad teach these vendors nothing?

      Yeah, selling a product at a loss destroys your business…
