ViewPad G70 with 3G, Android 4 coming to MWC
ViewSonic will unveil a seven-inch Android tablet at Mobile World Congress next week, Pocket-lint learned. Likely to be called the ViewPad G70, the device should run on Android 4.0 and a 1024x600-resolution touchscreen. It should also have the firm's custom ViewScene interface, but it ought to still keep access to Google services and access to the Android Market.
Claimed specs include 4GB of storage, 1GB of RAM, and likely a 1GHz, dual-core chip of an uncertain make. A microSD memory card slot should be onboard, along with mini HDMI, micro- and miniUSB ports, and dual cameras. The rear-facing camera is said to be rated at just two megapixels and reflect the budget focus. It might carry 3G along with the usual Wi-Fi.
The tablet may cost $350 when it does arrive.
