Viewsonic VTablet 101 Has Decent Specs and Terrible Timing

Let's take a moment to appreciate Viewsonic's new Android tablet while we can, before it gets crushed in the tidal wave of coverage that a certain other tablet's debut will get next week. And it's got some things worth appreciating!

The VTablet 101 will come equipped with Tegra T20 graphics, a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, an 8.9-inch (1024x800) display, a front camera, and 4GB of flash storage. You can also make phone calls from it with Bluetooth hooked up. It has Wi-Fi and 3G connectivity, though the latter only through an external modem, and will be available for $441 whenever it ends up being released. Android tablets are bound to get it right at some point, right? Aren't they?

Okay, okay, you can all go back to your breathless iSlate iPad Apple tablet anticipation now. [Cloned in China via Engadget]
