ViewSonic on Sunday launched four new tablets - including the incredibly priced £129 ViewPad E70 - at this year’s Mobile World Congress, offering the world of Android on a big screen on the cheap.
Starting off the latest range of new tablets is the ViewPad E70 (pictured above). The Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich-powered tablet comes with a 7-inch touchscreen display, 1GHz processor and 4GB storage, all for £129.
The budget model will also have a front-facing camera, Wi-Fi connectivity and microSD expandable storage up to 32GB. It will be available in Europe before the end of June.
Those looking for something higher up the range can double down on their cash and go for the ViewPad G70 at a cost of £260.
As we exclusively revealed last week, the ViewSonic ViewPad G70 is a 7-inch Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich tablet, packing 1GB RAM and 4GB storage. Users will be able to expand the storage by a further 32GB using the integrated microSD card slot.
The new tablet will come with 3G, Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity, mini HDMI, Micro-USB and even Mini-USB for connecting to external USB devices. There's also a 2-megapixel rear camera and 0.3-megapixel front camera.
Those into screen specs will be pleased with the G70’s 1024 x 600 resolution, 8-bit colour, 250 nits brightness and 500:1 contrast ratio.
Unlike some previous ViewSonic tablets, it will be fully Google certified - meaning you’ll have access to the Android Market. The ViewPad G70 is launching in Europe before the end of June.
The ViewSonic ViewPad E100 also boasts Google’s latest operating system, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and comes with a 9.7-inch 1024 x 768 resolution, IPS display and a 1GHz Cortex processor. It is 9.1mm thick.
Specs include Bluetooth 3.0, Wi-Fi, HDMI, USB and microSD support with a 3G version available for full wireless access when on the move. The ViewPad E100 will cost £260 for Wi-Fi and £325 for the 3G model. It will launch in Europe before the end of June.
Finally there is the ViewPad P100, a Windows 7 tablet that comes with a 10-inch IPS 1280 x 800 display panel. Using an Intel N2600 dual-core processor running at 1.6GHz it should be suitable for Windows 8 when it arrives.
The ViewPad P100 (Wi-Fi) will cost £520 and the P100 (3G) will cost slightly more at £645. Both are expected to be available in June.
