With its compact build and excellent battery life, this surprisingly powerful tablet is one of the most portable yet.

In all, though, the ViewSonic ViewPad 7x is a decent tablet for the money. It’s compact, light and combines this with slick performance and reasonable battery life. There isn’t much to choose between this and its main rival, the Acer Iconia Tab A100, but if you’re after something a little different then the ViewPad edges it.

So overall the ViewSonic ViewPad 7x has plenty going for it. We haven’t touched on battery life yet. The internal 3200mAh battery didn’t have the staying power that we get from the Xoom which surprised us. ViewSonic said that there were some battery tweaks to come: we averaged about 5 hours of use from it before it started complaining. If you’re planning to be a sofa-based tablet user then battery life probably doesn’t worry you, but if you’re a long haul traveller, you might want to wait and see what other users report once the ViewPad 7x hits the shelves.
