On the table front, this would be a busy year for the monitor maker, Viewsonic. At the Mobile World Congress 2012, the US-based company unveiled one of its numerous new tablets, the Viewsonic ViewPad P100, with Windows 7 OS. It sports a 10” (1280×800) IPS display and uses the Intel Atom N2600 1.6GHz dual-core processor, which will be powerful enough to handle the tablet version of Windows 8. The OS sometimes makes the tablet feels like a netbook with the keyboard hacked off.
At the bottom side of the tablet you’ll find nearly every socket and port you can think off. There are lock button, external speakers, full-sized SD card slot, SIM slot, volume rocker, power socket, 3.5 headphone jack, two full-sized USB ports, homescreen button and many others. This explains for the uncharacteristically expensive price tag for a ViewPad tablet, £645 for the 3G+WiFi model.
