ViewSonic’s “ViewPad 4” Makes An Appearance At CES 2011

The second day of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas is already bringing us up-to-date developments of the latest innovations coming our way this year. So far this morning, we have heard about the PlayStation Phone from Sony, a new range of cameras from Polaroid and Lady Gaga, and with talk about the next year being that of the tablet, we now have reports on ViewSonic‘s latest Android tablet, the “ViewPad 4.”

The guys over at PCMag.com have spoken about a 4-incher running on Android’s 2.2 OS which can be compared to that of Dell’s 5-inch Streak offering, but based on specification and picture details, ViewSonic‘s device will be that of a tablet and a phone. Along with the benefit of making calls, the ViewPad 4 will include a virtual keyboard, Web browser, Qualcomm processor, easy Swype input, 5 megapixel rear and 3 megapixel front-facing cameras.

Although no official launch date has been confirmed, we do know that it will retail in the region of $549 unlocked. We can also bring you news on 7-inch and 10-inch ViewPads making their way to the market in the next two weeks, a subject that we reported on here at OSM back in November. The ViewPad 7’s details as we sourced from Engadget spoke of it including Android 2.2, snapdragon processor, 512MB of memory and 3G capabilities, 2 cameras one on the front and one on the rear as well the possibility of preloaded Google apps.
