ViewSonic ViewPad 7x arrives at FCC

The Tegra 2-equipped tablet now expected to land this October in the U.S.

First announced late May and then later showcased at the IFA expo, the ViewSonic ViewPad 7x tablet has finally made its way to the FCC and, according to, is already approved for WiFi and Bluetooth functionality.

The 7-inch 7x is part of ViewSonic’s trio of new tablets, which include the dual-boot ViewPad 10pro, the e-reader ViewPad 7e and the multimedia-centric ViewPad 7x. All tablets were originally announced for European markets only, but a U.S. launch of the 7x is now likely.

The ViewPad 7x comes equipped with an Nvidia Tegra 2 APU, 1024x600 resolution screen, 8GB SSD, GPS and the proprietary ViewScene 3D UI. That’s not to say the screen is 3D-compatible out of the box, but the “3D” name in this case simply refers to the 3D-like interface of the UI. The software is already in use for a number of ViewSonic Android smartphones and the official walkthrough of the interface can be seen here.

Expect the ViewPad 7x to hit U.S. store shelves this October for $379.
