Two weeks ago we reported that ViewSonic had announced their pricing and availability for their ViewPad 7 that is would come in Q4 for $479.99 and according to Amazon, the ViewPad 7 is available for pre-order, but not at that price. It seems that ViewSonic has up’d the price to $599.99 which doesn’t seem like the route to take considering that I could buy a better quality Samsung Galaxy Tab for the same price, contract-free.

For a quick comparison, the features of the ViewPad 7 includes:

  • Android 2.2
  • 7-inch 800×480 WVGA LCD display
  • 600MHz processor
  • 802.11 b/g
  • Bluetooth connectivity
  • 3-megapixel, auto focus camera in the rear and a 0.3 megapixel camera in the front
  • 512MB of memory
  • expandable storage up to 32GB via microSD port

While the Samsung Galaxy Tab features:

  • Android 2.2
  • 7-inch 1024X600 WSVGA enhanced TTF display
  • 1GHz Hummingbird processor
  • TouchWiz UI
  • Front-facing camera
  • Wi-Fi
  • GPS
  • Bluetooth
  • Micro SD expandable up to 32GB

We’re not too sure why ViewSonic is offering the ViewPad 7 for the same price and we’re curious to see who chooses the ViewPad 7 over the Galaxy Tab. Which tablet would you choose?

    They should start at a pricing point of $250 with those specs! Another company just tossing crap together to say they have a tablet, yawn.

    I work at Sears and they are still available there, if anyone is interested.
