Rumors, Tablets


An avalanche of new Android-based gadgets is expected to hit us next week at the MWC in Barcelona, which means that until then we are bound to analyze leaks, rumors and speculations of all sorts.

The ViewSonic ViewPad G70 is the latest gadget to pop up on the Internet and might be a device to watch in Spain, even though it’s not set to come with the best performance level possible. The 7-inch tablet has been spotted at and, despite the fact that we have pretty much no idea how it will look, we are fairly intrigued.

The 7-incher will most definitely run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich out of the box and other known features include 1 GB of RAM, only 4 GB of internal storage space, dual cameras, as well as WiFi, Bluetooth and optional 3G.

No details are for the time being known about the tablet’s processor or about the cameras, but rumors point towards a dual-core chipset, a 2 MP rear-facing shooter and a 0.3 MP front-facing webcam. However, these are only speculations, so as usual, they should be taken with a pinch of salt.

The ViewSonic ViewPad G70 will also come with a mini HDMI connector, a micro USB port and a microSD card slot, which is pretty nice, while as far as pricing is concerned, is listing the 7-incher with a 311.99 dollars tag.

It’s difficult to say whether the quality-price ratio will be fair or not, as we don’t know what processor will the tablet feature and we have yet to find out a few important details about the screen, but all these should be clarified as soon as next week. Stay tuned on to find out more about the upcoming ViewSonic ViewPad G70!
