Viewsonic ViewPad 10e Gingerbread Tablet, priced at $399

First seen last year, the Viewsonic ViewPad 10e did not really draw any attention since then. The tablet, which is the successor of the ViewPad 10, is designed for entry level users, but the 10e doesn’t seem to be reasonably priced. Viewsonic is not that famous compared to other major players in the Android tablet world and it won’t change that way even if their new tablet is released. I stated that because the 10e has a selling price of a whopping $399!

Although the tablet’s 9.7-inch (1026 x 768 pixels) IPS display is reasonable, the 4GB of storage, 512MB of RAM and the 1 GHz single-core processor is just quite low. The tablet is also equipped with an HDMI port, micro-SD, and a micro-USB port. What makes the tablet even more disappointing is the fact that it is preinstalled with a stock Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS even though the competitions are going for Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich.

I think the Viewsonic ViewPad 10e doesn’t stand a chance at all. If you just add extra bucks then you get a quad-core ASUS Transformer Prime. Also, for $249, you will get a 7-inch quad-core ASUS MeMO with Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich OS. As of the moment, the ViewPad 10e is only available for preorder as listed by Amazon.

What do you think about the tablet? Are you interested to have one?
