ViewSonic is now planning to launch the world’s first 7-inch tablet based on Android 3 or Honeycomb, Google`s mobile OS designed for tablets, Pocket-lint reports.
The ViewPad 7x will weigh 380 grams and sport a dual-core Nvidia Tegra 2 chip, dual cameras, a HDMI port and HSPA+ support, which makes it a capable device, worthy of testing the Honeycomb waters in 7-inch format. It is not known whether it will have the freshly launched Honeycomb 3.1, or the initial 3.0 version of Google’s tablet platform.
The device is slated to be launched on May 31 at this year’s Computex fair in Taipei.
ViewSonic’s current tablet lineup includes the 10-inch ViewPad 10, which we’ve first seen at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February, as well as a 7-inch ViewPad 7 which is based on Android 2.2 (Froyo).
