ViewSonic ViewBook 730 tablet now on sale in the U.S.
First revealed early last month, the ViewBook 730 was supposed to ship by the end of June. Now, the budget 7-inch tablet has finally become available here in the United States.
The ViewBook 730 features an 800x480 resolution screen with touch and stylus support, a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU, 512MB RAM, 8GB SSD, Flash 10.1 support, a microSD card reader and the usual WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity options (The source incorrectly lists the resolution as 800x400). A front-facing VGA camera and an HDMI-out are included as well. All in all, the tablet is expected to last 10 hours from its 5000mAh battery.
For those looking for a bit more power in a 7-inch form factor, ViewSonic will soon be offering a 7-inch tablet with the Tegra 2 APU this coming August.
The Froyo-powered ViewSonic 730 tablet is now available for just $230. For a price this low, the specs are indeed quite impressive. Here’s hoping ViewSonic decides to update the tablet to Gingerbread or even Honeycomb sometime in the near future.
