This week is the time for rumors and leaks, as we’re coming up on MWC 2012 quickly. Pocket-lint received word from an unidentified source that ViewSonic will have a 7-inch tablet to release at MWC next week.
The ViewPad G70 will ship with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and 4 GB of memory that can be expanded with the microSD slot. The resolution will be pretty high at 1024 x 600 pixels. There is no word on what processor it will have, but since it will have 1 GB of RAM, it will hopefully be a dual core processor. The specs are quite similar to the ViewPad E70 that was announced at CES, but the G70 will probably have a faster processor.
On top of the ViewScene interface that we’ve seen on previous tablets, this one will be “Google-certified”, which means it will have Google services and Android Market access. The G70 will have front and rear cameras, 3G connectivity, mini HDMI, Micro-USB and Mini-USB. While Pocket-lint’s source didn’t disclose a price, Costcentral.com has listed the ViewPad G70 for $311.99, with a MSRP of $349.00. All the info appears to lead to a mid range tablet. What do you think?
