Looks like Viewsonic is getting ahead, announcing that they’d be the first to release a Honeycomb tablet in the smaller, 7-inch form factor, with the Viewsonic ViewPad 7x. Boasting of a 1024×600 resolutions screen, the Honeycomb tablet will once again be Tegra 2 powered, and weigh just 380 grams. Viewsonic has also managed to squeeze in HDMI and 3G (HSPA+) connectivity.
We wonder which will end up releasing first, the 7-inch Asus Eee Pad MeMO, or the Viewsonic ViewPad 7x – the race is on for the world’s first 7-inch Honeycomb tablet, with out without HSPA+. The tablet is expected to ship with Android 3.0.1 Honeycomb onboard, though a 3.1 update seems likely.
