Androids Taking Their Tablets

Android devices are big news.

So too are tablets: a Week or two we heard – officially – about the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and that should be hitting the streets pretty soon.

And this week we saw Viewsonic announce their new tablet.

With a ten inch form factor plus NVidia’s Tegra 2 chip, this US$430 tablet will be running Android 2.2. With its specifications including 1GB of RAM, resolution of 1024 x 600, connectivity that includes USB, HDMI, 802.11n WiFi, and Bluetooth 2.1, plus 16GB of storage, and a 1.3 megapixel camera, this is a very fully featured device.
