ViewSonic ViewPad E72 stops by the FCC
ViewSonic has already introduced a number of tablets this year, including the E70, E100/P100 and 10pi. Now, an FCC (Federal Communications Commission) filing has revealed that the US-based tech company is getting ready to release another ViewPad device, dubbed as the E72.
Apparently, the new tablet comes outfitted with a capacitive, multitouch-enabled display that measures 7 inches in diagonal and has a native resolution of 1024-by-600 pixels. Moreover, it will be powered by a single-core ARM Cortex-A9 central processing unit with a clock frequency of 1.GHz.
The forthcoming slate computer presumably houses 1GB of DDR3 RAM and 8GB of flash storage, which is expandable by up to an additional 32GB (via the integrated microSD card reader slot). Other features of the latest ViewPad include mini-HDMI output, one microUSB port, G-Sensor and a 0.3MP front-facing web camera for video conferencing.
The product data sheet further indicates the E72 weighs 0.86lbs, runs on an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and has a battery life of up to 4 hours. ViewSonic’s new tablet PC is not Google-approved, which means users will have access to the Amazon Appstore for Android and 1Mobile Market, instead of Google Play.
Unfortunately, there’s still no word on pricing or an official release date.
