ViewSonic officially announces the ViewPad 7x, 10pro, and 7e tablets at IFA
For a good long time now, we’ve been hearing about ViewSonic’s upcoming tablets, but now we can breathe a little bit easier now that they’re officially being announced at IFA.

First on the chopping block is none other than their most premium tablet – the ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro. Obviously, we’ve been seeing this one being talked about on numerous occasions, but now we have definitive knowledge that this Wi-Fi only tablet will be arriving on September 5th for the price of €499 ($714). As we know, it’s a 10” model that features the convenience of offering Windows 7 Professional and Android 2.3 Gingerbread.

Secondly, there’s the ViewSonic ViewPad 7x that’s sporting a 7” 1024 x 600 display, dual-core NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, front & rear facing cameras, Honeycomb, 8GB of internal storage, and ViewSonic’s very own 3D ViewScene user interface. Even though there’s no official launch date, it’s believed to come at the end of the month for the price of €349 ($499).

Finally, the ViewSonic ViewPad 7e is their stab at the eReader market since it’s an affordable option that offers Amazon’s Kindle software. Additionally, this diminutive device, which is believed to be Android powered, sports a 4:3 aspect 7” display that’s priced affordably at €169 ($242) – though, its availability date is still unknown, but it’s expected to land sometime in Q4.

Coming out of the shadows, ViewSonic definitely seems to be stepping things up a notch as they attempt to gain some visibility in the always competitive tablet market. We’ll see how they fare in the long run.
