The ViewSonic G-Tablet is a 10 inch slate computer running Google Android 2.2. It might not dual boot Windows 7 and Android like the ViewSonic ViewPad 100, but that’s because the G-Tablet has an ARM-based NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor which should offer better battery life while still providing 3D grahics acceleration and support for Flash 10.1 and 1080p HD video playback.
Laptop Magazine reports that the ViewSonic G-Tablet will have a list price of $529, although it will likely sell for a bit less when it hits Radio Shack, Walmart, Costco, Sam’s Club, and other retail stores.
The tablet has a 1.3MP front-facing camera, USB and microSD support, and 16GB of storage. It has a 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive multitouhc display, 1GB of RAM, Bluetooth 2.1 and 802.11b/g/n WiFi.
The $529 price tag might seem kind of high when Apple is charging $499 for the WiFi-only iPad, but I actually paid $529 for my Google Nexus One smartphone about 6 months ago when I bought it without a wireless contract.
