Low priced Android tablet from ViewSonic

Techstination feature for Tuesday, June 28, 2011

 Interesting features and a bargain price in a new Android tablet from ViewSonic.    I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    ViewSonic is out with the ViewBook 730, a 7 inch Android tablet priced at just 250 dollars.     It runs Android 2.2, not the Gingerbread version specifically designed for tablets.   And the ViewBook 730 connects to Amazon’s app store instead of  Google’s Android Marketplace.   But the 1Ghz processor is snappy and performs well for Web surfing, email, music, games and video.   It’s a versatile ereader as well with a Kindle app built in and others such as Kobo available.   ViewSonic marketing VP Adam Hanin says there are some other unique features….

One of them is our RiteTouch technology which actually allows you to use the tablet as a note taking device.  You can actually write on the screen with a stylus.”
