There are many Android 2.2 tablets on market and even though the Android 3.0 version has been released some months ago, the 2.2 tablets are still very searched for. One of the manufacturer that creates Android 2.2 tablets is ViewSonic. Of course, they create the hardware components, the software programs, meaning the operating system being created by someone else (by Google-Android), but the hardware is usually connected to the software.
I mean, if you design a certain device, that is supposed to run Android 2.2, then that device may or may not be able to run Android 3.0 that easily. There are cases in which, with all the upgrades that you can bring to your device, that device will never run a certain operating system or a certain application. This is why I said the hardware is very connected to the software components. And when these are not made by the same company, like Apple does, there can appear some issues. Luckily for many, the Android 2.2 Froyo operating system is still very powerful and in many situations, if the user wants that, it can be upgraded to a later version, without too many headaches.
The ViewSonic company did a great job when creating the ViewPad tablet, that has only 7 inches in diagonal, that uses the Google Mobile Services and which uses an ARM11 processor. If you read our reviews, then I think you know by now that ARM is the manufacturer of processors for tablets, just like Intel creates processor and all sort of chips for personal computers. In fact, Intel is the parent of the microprocessors, used in general in personal computers, while ARM creates chips for smaller devices, based on the collaboration with Qualcomm.
The speed of the processor is of 600 MHz. You benefit of the Wireless and Bluetooth technologies, and also of the assisted GPS technology, used normally by cellular phones, not by tablets. Yes, there are cases when the tablets use the GPS applications, but only when their users download speciffic programs from the Internet or when they buy those programs and install them in their devices. In this case, the GPS comes along with the tablet, along with the OS and all. If you are tired of using a regular eReader, start using this device as an eReader, because it is the perfect solution, being able to deliver TXT files, HTML and EPUB files, as well as PDF files at a high resolution.
