ViewSonic's ViewPad E70 will be released in late Q1 for $169.99
Many Android-based tablets have came, saw, but hardly conquered in the tablet arena over the past year. Standing up to the iPad 2 has been a difficult challenge for many, but ViewSonic is willing to give it a shot.
ViewSonic, a global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions, revealed its ViewPad E70 tablet at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas this week.
The 7-inch ViewPad E70 tablet features Android's latest mobile operating system, Ice Cream Sandwich, as well as a 1 GHz processor, 4 GB memory storage, microSD expandable storage to 32 GB, front-facing camera, and Wi-Fi capabilities. Like other Android-based tablets, users will be able to download various apps from the Android Market for a full tablet experience.
"ViewSonic is committed to delivering advanced technology designed with the consumer in mind," said Michael Holstein, vice president of business development for ViewSonic. "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."
Apple may be top dog when it comes to tablets for now, with its iPad accounting for
97.2 percent of U.S. tablet traffic
back in August 2011 alone, but a report by technology analysis firm J. Gold Associates said Android tablets are
expected to "overwhelm" iPads

Nice but needs Tegra2 dual core to compete with Fire....

Nice attempt, but whats the deal with a single (no mention of dual) core 1ghz power....
The Fire has dual-core....which is worth the additional cost compared to this model.
The Tegra2 has been mainstream and is moving back with the release of the new Tegra3. Production costs should be quite low by now.
