CES 2012: ViewSonic announces new ICS tablet priced at $169

7-inch tablets, it seems are making a comeback with Asus announcing the $250 MeMo,Samsung launching its Galaxy Tab Plus 7.0 and now ViewSonic launching it’s ViewPad e70. However, the e70  differs from its competitors primarily owing to its OS - it comes with Google’s Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system. The rest of the specs, include an 800 x 480 pixel resolution display under the 7-inch capacitive touchscreen and a 1GHz single core processor. 
Getting cheaper and cheaper...
Getting cheaper and cheaper...

As reported by Liliputing, the connectivity options for the ViewPad e70, include a microSD card slot, a microHDMI port(!) and 4GB of internal storage. Surprisingly, the tablet will come with the Amazon Appstore and the Kindle application and not Google’s Android market, which may be a deal breaker for some, along with the ultra-low resolution. These tablets are coming in by the hordes, and considering Google’s leniency with Android 4.0, there are chances that this is just the start.
