ViewSonic’s ViewPad 10e: Value-conscious tablet computing

Recently announced by ViewSonic is a the ViewPad 10e. Powered by Android technology and boosting a range of advanced features to ensure you are at your most productive wherever you are, the tablet features a 9.7″ 4:3 ratio screen.


Weighing a measly 620grams, and only 9.1mm thin, the tablet is light enough to carry around with you and ensures its portability. At the heart of the device is a Cortex A8 1Ghz processor which, along with its 4GB built-in memory, makes sure it has enough guts to power any application you wish to throw at it. For those looking for even more memory this can be expanded to an additional 32GB by using a Micro SD slot.

Perhaps the most tantalizing feature of the tablet is its customizable 3D user interface, which is created by the ViewScene 3D application. With a number of different layouts and panels, the 3D display looks nothing short of impressive, although it takes a little getting used to. Still, if 3D truly is the future of computing, the ViewPad 10e gives a glimpse of just what that future could hold.

In addition to this impressive technical wizardry, the tablet also includes a number of other features that will put a smile on any commuters face. The wireless Bluetooth 3.0 connectivity grants high speed data transfer, whilst the mini HDMI connector offers a screen capacity of 720p, which for a device this size ensures a crystal clear display.

On top of all this is a pre-installed Amazon Kindle, which grants access to over 700 eBooks, magazines and newspapers. Surely enough for even the longest train journey? Coupled that with a stand-by battery time of over 200 hours, and it looks like we may well have a winner on out hands.
