ViewSonic introduces 7-inch ViewBook 730 tablet

New budget-line tablet to launch at the end of the month for only $250 with Android Froyo and Flash 10.1 support

ViewSonic has another tablet up its sleeve, this time for the entry-level sector of the market.

Called the ViewBook 730, the budget 7-inch tablet includes a 800x480 resolution screen, a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A8 CPU, HDMI, 8GB SSD, Flash 10.1 support, front-facing webcam and will run on Android Froyo.  The usual Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity options are built in as well. The tablet should be able to last up to 8 hours on a full charge.

We recognized a need for a tablet device that offers users an excellent multimedia experience with a very affordable value preposition,” said Michael Holstein, vice president of business development at ViewSonic.

ViewSonic last week announced a duo of tablets at Computex 2011, the Viewpad 7x and the Viewpad 10Pro, each aimed at the higher end of the tablet market.

The ViewBook 730 is expected to hit the market at the end of this month for just $250. An additional stylus will be thrown in for free as well, as ViewSonic is encouraging notetaking and ebook reading with the ViewBook 730.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
