ViewSonic announced the ViewBook 730, a 7-inch Android 2.2 OS tablet with ARM Cortex-A8 1Ghz processor, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth support. It's designed for the value seeker who doesn't want to compromise on features. Whether experiencing 1080p video playback via the HDMI connection, or engaging in video chat and conference calls using the integrated front VGA camera, the ViewBook 730 is the ideal tablet for staying connected and enjoying all the exciting possibilities of digital media content on the move.
With its RiteTouch technology, the ViewBook 730's high-resolution 800×480 LED backlit screen serves as a great tool for pen writing. Whether taking notes in the classroom, highlighting excerpts within a novel or textbook, or working on art projects with the pre-installed Sketcher app, the included stylus and RiteTouch make it easy to write directly on the screen of the device, swipe across content and scroll through emails.
Fully integrated with the Amazon Appstore, the most popular games and entertainment have already been installed: from Twitter, to Amazon's MP3 music downloader, shopping on Amazon.com, plus YouTube and Mediafly, along with Amazon Kindle software for industry-leading eBook reading.
“In the tablet marketplace, there are plenty of solutions to choose from,” said Michael Holstein, vice president of business development, ViewSonic. “We recognized a need for a tablet device that offers users an excellent multimedia experience with a very affordable value proposition. From the pre-installed Amazon Kindle eReader to full Amazon app integration and Flash 10.1 support, our new ViewBook 730 enables consumers to do all the fun things that they want to do on a tablet without the added cost for features they don't need.”
In addition to an ample 8GB of memory, the ViewBook 730 offers up to an additional 32GB of storage capacity via the microSD card slot. Teamed with a long-lasting battery for up to 8 hours of use per charge, consumers can bring all their favorite multimedia content with them wherever they go. For added convenience and functionality, the ViewBook 730 offers ViewSonic's AirSync technology to ensure that tablet owners will receive over-the-air device updates as they are rolled out, from feature add-ons to software updates.
