ViewSonic ViewPad E70

Honeycomb is apparently yesterday’s news as the Ice Cream Sandwich OS is set to take over tablets and smartphones alike, including the recently confirmed ViewSonic ViewPad E70 slate. Leaning on the Android 4.0 platform, this device wraps in various useful features at quite a nifty price tag.

The tablet gets its steam from a CPU that is clocked at a frequency of 1GHz. The specs sheet houses a few essential attributes such as Wi-Fi connectivity for web browsing and content streaming as well as a microSD card slot which can be used to expand the built-in storage of 4GB up to an additional 32GB. Furthermore, there is a front facing camera for video calling or face-to-face chats and an HDMI port for viewing stuff in full HD 1080p resolution on an external display.

Featuring the latest Android operating system, along with leading apps and services for entertainment content, the ViewPad E70 continues the ViewSonic tradition of bringing feature-rich products to new markets.”

The company has also integrated within this device, a number of apps and services through which users can conveniently access multimedia and entertainment content along with a wide catalog of applications. Besides this somewhat wallet-friendly Android slate, ViewSonic also unveiled two new 10-inch tablets and a smartphone at the CES 2012.

The ViewSonic ViewPad E70 price tag reads at $169.99 and it will be available sometime during the late Q1 of 2012.
