Computex, this week, was more likely was of Tablet PCs show. By some counts, as many as 50 new tablet devices have already been announced at the show — and many more previously announced entrants are on display.
Here’s some tablets announcments:
ViewSonic. Two tablets of note here from ViewSonic. Pictured below is the ViewPad 7x, a 7″ Android tablet that runs on Honeycomb. It includes front and rear facing cameras, HDMI out, Wi-Fi connectivity and HSPA+ support. No official release date was forthcoming, although some reports indicated a summer release.
ViewSonic also displayed a dual-OS tablet capable of running Windows and Android at the show. The 10-inch tablet would technically be a Windows tablet though — Android would apparently run virtualized.
MSI is on hand showing off two Android tablets to attendees. The Enjoy 7 and Enjoy 10 both run on Gingerbread, with the 10-inch model coming in at $299. The 7-inch model is said to be even cheaper, although no specific price point is available.
Why is the Enjoy line running on Gingerbread versus Honeycomb? MSI says stability concerns and wider compatibility are the reason. Now we’ll see if the company actually can bring a device to the market — we’re not holding our breath.

Gigabyte showing off their Windows 7 tablet. The tablet includes an Intel Atom N570 processor, 2GB of RAM, a whopping 320GB harddrive, camera, Wi-Fi, HSPA+ support, USB 2.0 and 3.0 support, and integrated SD card reader. No price has been announced yet, but we get the feeling from the product specs that this unit is all but a laptop without the keyboard.
