iiView Vpad

A Chinese company has launched its own tablet, the iiView Vpad, that looks pretty cool and the price is not bad at all, $499 a pop. But before running to order one, let’s take a look at its specs.

The iiView Vpad is powered by a modest Intel Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, 160GB HDD and it is running under Windows 7 Starter.  The tablet doesn’t have a HD accelerator so you will have problems with video streaming. Even so, if you have more money to spend, you can choose the upgraded version which comes with 2GB of RAM and 360GB of HDD.
