ViewSonic ViewPad 730

Because there is no shortage of Android tablets, kidding for course, ViewSonic is launching it's ViewBook 730.  The ViewBook will be powered by an ARM Cortex-A8 1GHz processor and will run Android 2.2.  The ViewBook 730 is expected to hit later this June for around $250.

The 7-inch Android tablet will have an 800×480 LCD touch screen with 8GB's of memory and an extra 32GB of microSD storage.  There is only one camera which is mounted on the front of the device.  There will also be a mini-USB port and a mini HDMI port which can shoot 108p video externally. 

Wireless bits include Bluetooth 2.1 and Wi-Fi 802.11b/g but no Wireless-N.  You will also get ViewSonic's AirSync technology which allows over-the-air software updates.

The battery is expected to last 8 to 10 hours per charge.  One unique feature on the ViewBook 730 is the RiteTouch feature which allows use of an included stylus for writing or drawing.

“We recognized a need for a tablet device that offers users an excellent multimedia experience with a very affordable value proposition,” Michael Holstein, ViewSonic’s vice president of business development, said in a statement. “From the pre-installed Amazon Kindle eReader to full Amazon app integration and Flash 10.1 support, our new ViewBook 730 enables consumers to do all the fun things that they want to do on a tablet without the added cost for features they don’t need.”
