The 9.7-inch ViewPad 10e joins the ViewPad family of tablets with budget hardware and respectable connectivity options

California-based manufacturer ViewSonic continues its tablet frenzy with the new WiFi-only ViewPad 10e. The tablet will join the likes of the ViewPad 7x, ViewPad 10pro and ViewPad 7e as part of ViewSonic’s fast-expanding lineup of tablets.

According to SlashGear, the ViewPad 10e will be the company’s first IPS 9.7-inch Android offering with a thickness of just 9.1mm (0.36 inches). Users will find inside a single-core 1GHz ARM CPU, 512MB RAM, 4GB SSD and Bluetooth 3.0. Don’t let the budget-class specs fool you, however, as the tablet will also sport a microSD slot, mini-HDMI and micro-USB connectivity options as well.

On the software side, the ViewPad 10e will run Gingerbread and ViewScene 3D, ViewSonic’s proprietary Android UI. Whether or not the 10e is simply a larger version of the 7e with the same pre-installed apps is unknown.

Price and release dates have yet to be announced, but we imagine that the unit will be priced very competitively given the above specs. The 7-inch ViewPad 7x is expected to be available stateside by the end of this month, so hopefully the ViewPad 10e won’t be too far behind.
