Viewsonic To Sell 7-inch Android Tablet For £350

Display specialist Viewsonic has announced that it will sell an Android tablet called the Viewpad 7 and has managed to dish out a few interesting tidbits before it appears in flesh at the IFA event in Germany.

The tablet will not only come with the latest Android version on the market, Froyo, but also sports a 3G SIM slot with 3-megapixel camera and a VGA front facing one.

You will even be able to make calls on the tablet via VoIP or what Viewsonic calls "standard voice calls"; fortunately, you won't need to hold it close to your ear during a conversation.

Insted you can rely on the Bluetooth functionality; as expected, there's also Wi-Fi, a 7-inch 800x480 pixels capacitive tablet, built in GPS, microSD slot and accelerator.

Expect the tablet to be available from October 2010 from £350; there are apparently no plans for now to bundle it on pay monthly contracts or to bring Windows Phone 7 onboard rather than Android.
