ViewSonic's Android tablets embrace the old and new (photos)

ViewSonic tablets use Gingerbread and Ice Cream Sandwich to achieve the same goal: release a cheap Android tablet.

The E70

At $170, the ViewPad E70 may be the cheapest device to run Ice Cream Sandwich.

A real ICS?

I believe the fact the E70 looks like a real ice cream sandwich is pure coincidence.

Surprising ports

The E70 sports a surprising number of ports for such a cheap tablet. From left to right we see Mini-USB, Micro-USB, a microSD card slot, and Mini-HDMI.

Dat camera

No, the back camera was definitely *not* photographed in a room with really bad lighting. Why would you think that?

IPS

The ViewPad 10e sports a 10-inch IPS screen for $280.

Slim

The Android 2.3-based 10e has a fairly thin design, which I admit to being pleasantly surprised by given some of ViewSonic's previous efforts.
