Pad With A View
ViewSonic was among the first channel-friendly companies to deliver an Android-based tablet to solution providers with the ViewPad 7, a 7-inch tablet built around Android 2.2 that can double as either a smart phone or handheld PC. The device weighs less than 13 ounces, is 7 inches-by-4.5 inches-by a half-inch thick, and is built with a metallic side that makes it look like a big iPhone. Its display is at least as bright as Apple's Retina and delivered extraordinary results in tests of battery life. Street price is around $425 with 600 MB of storage.
