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.


  1. As a fan of HTC, I have to say that this appeals to me more than the HTC
    Flyer, for two reasons. 1, Honeycombe and 2, funky back-cover! Looks
    much more like a tablet than an over-sized phone. Will this be coming
    with “vanilla-flavoured Honeycombe”.
