According to Pocket-lint, ViewSonic is set to introduce the ViewPad 7x, the first 7-inch Android tablet running Honeycomb, at the end of this month. It’s planning launch the Android 3.0 tablet at Computex in Taiwan on May 31st. While Honeycomb is already available on larger tablets, such as the 10-inch Motorola Xoom and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, it’s yet to make the jump to the slightly smaller 7-inch form factor.
Of course, the ViewPad 7x will pack a lot more than just Honeycomb. It’ll have an Nvidia Tegra 2 dual-core processor, HSPA+, front and rear cameras, HDMI and DLNA support. According to Pocket-Lint, it weighs 13.4 ounces and has a design on its backside.
It’ll be sold alongside the current ViewPad 7, which sports Android 2.2 and 3G connectivity, and weighs a similar 13.2 ounces. However, the ViewPad 7 only has a 600-MHz processor, so we expect that the ViewPad 7x will be much faster overall.
There’s no word on pricing for the ViewPad 7x, but surely that will come closer to its official announcement. Stay tuned.
