It’s hard to deny this year is really the year of the tablet. Everybody’s got one — even LCD monitor manufacturer ViewSonic has one too they called the ViewPad 7.
Running the latest Android Froyo OS, the ViewSonic ViewPad 7 is a 7-inch tablet running a clocked-down Qualcomm processor.

Expected retail price is around $550 but I doubt it would even reach our shores. With the Samsung Galaxy Tab expected to be selling between $800 to $1,000 (Samsung execs say it will be priced higher than the Php32k Galaxy S), at least we have some options.
