Press ReleasesKermit Woodall

ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer
electronics and communications solutions, today announced its ViewPad
line of Android-based devices, featuring the ViewPad 7 and ViewPad 10.

“Leveraging our 20-year display heritage, these new ViewPad
solutions provide users with anytime anywhere connectivity,” said Jeff
Volpe, vice president and general manager for ViewSonic Americas.
“With access to the universe of Android apps, our new ViewPads are
perfectly suited for enjoying digital entertainment and social media.
Office productivity is also a snap with robust web browsing
functionality.”

ViewPad 7 – The Android 2.2 ViewPad 7 combines a powerful
processor with 3.5G capable data technology in a lightweight,
pocket-sized 7” form factor. With an 800×480 WVGA LCD screen, this
device is one of the only 7” tablet solutions with Android Google
Mobile Services (GMS). As a result, consumers can connect to a
selection of more than 100,000 apps and games along with Gmail,
YouTube and more for a superior and convenient entertainment solution
that fits today’s mobile lifestyle.

With its wireless 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth® connectivity the
ViewPad 7 supports instant messaging, VoIP, and all the web browsing
and USB connectivity functions of a capacitive multi-touch device. The
ViewPad 7 features 2 built-in cameras: a 3-megapixel, auto focus
camera in the rear and a 0.3 megapixel camera in the front. In
addition to the integrated 512MB of memory, the ViewPad 7 offers up to
an additional 32GB of storage capacity via the micro SD card slot,
along with battery life of up to 10 hours. The result is the ultimate
device for connected fun and multitasking – in a compact size easier
to carry than a netbook and with better media performance than a
smartphone.

The ViewPad 7 will be available in late Q4 2010 for an ESP of
$479. Third-party accessories and ViewCare™ extended warranties will
also be available at launch.

ViewPad 10 – Innovative and productive, this 10.1” dual-boot Wi-Fi
device gives users a choice between Windows® 7 Home Premium and Google
Android 1.6 within the same device. With a high performance, high
speed Intel® Atom™ 1.66GHz processor, integrated 1GB of memory, 16GB
SSD hard drive and expandable micro SD slot, the ViewPad 10 is ideally
designed to view Flash-based content and Office programs with Windows,
and for an optimized mobile entertainment experience with Android.
Additionally, the 1024×600 LED backlit panel includes a G-sensor and
capacitive multi-touch for intuitive navigation across multiple
applications. Teamed with a 1.3-megapixel webcam with built-in
microphone, the ViewPad 10 is great for videoconferencing as well.

The ViewPad 10 with dual-boot OS will be available in Q1 2011 for
an ESP of $629. Third-party accessories and ViewCare™ extended
warranties will be available at launch.
