ViewSonic shows off 7" ViewPad E70

ViewSonic shows off 7
Just in case you haven't had enough news recently about Android tablets, we've got another one for you. This time it's from ViewSonic and it's part of the budget category of devices. The ViewSonic ViewPad E70 is a 7" tablet running Ice Cream Sandwich, and due out in late Q1 of this year for just $180. 

Unfortunately, that's where the good news ends. Sure, the tab is under $200, but for that you're getting an Ice Cream Sandwich tablet which still has capacitive buttons for some strange reason, and the innards are just as strange. The E70 has a 1 GHz CPU (no word on cores, but we're assuming single), and just 4 GB of storage. It will be capable of 1080p out through an HDMI port. 

Overall, if you're in the market for something cheap, this may be it. But, we'll wait and see what the pricing on the Asus Eee Pad MeMO comes out to be, since that is scheduled for release just a couple months later and has far better specs.

This wouldn't be a bad tablet if someone wants one but isn't sure if they truly want on. and for all the people out there that don't want to drop more than 200 or so for a tablet.

Yea, though it does have the good price, but it's still not worth buying.

As long as it has access from the factory for the Android Market... that was the biggest letdown for the Viewsonic gTablet, and why I don't own it anymore. Yes I know about rooting, but the device was fine as is, just missing the Android Market
