And those tablets are expensive and competing directly with Samsung Galaxy Tab. Viewpad’s 7-inch tab costs Rs. 32000 and its 10-inch tab costs Rs. 38,000. A 10-inch Viewpad tab is comparable to Samsung Galaxy Tab on the price.
A 7 inch Android tablet with 600 MHz processor. For the price of 32K, I was expecting a faster processor. It runs Android Froyo (2.2) which is good, has 512 MB internal memory and a 3 megapixel rear camera and VGA front camera. It has 3G and Wi-Fi which is expected for a device at this price range. Nothing fancy and nothing new which aren’t already available anywhere else. If this is competing with Samsung Galaxy Tab since both have the same screen size, we need to do a spec by spec comparison and see how this fares.
A 10 inch Android tablet which will put it in the iPad league because of the screen size. The most notable feature of ViewPad 10 is its dual boot facility. I haven’t heard of any other tablet offering it out of the box. Though this comes with an older version of Android 1.6, it can be dual booted with Windows 7. It is powered by Intel’s Atom 1.66GHz processor and has 1 GB memory – which is what I expect from a tablet in this price range. The resolution is at 1024×600. It has a 1.3 megapixel camera and no mention of a front camera, which if true, would be the biggest let down.
Between Viewpad 7 and ViewPad 10 they have great product. Individually each product lacks some thing. If Viewpad7 lacks a faster processor then Viewpad 10 lacks video conferencing capabilities.
