Thanks for the info.


Weird, it's already for sale in Austria supposedly...


Anyway, they better reconfigure it with a capacative screen too. With the Galaxy Tab around the corner, it'll be dead in the water other otherwise.

Well that would be nice to have a front facing camera, they might as well put in the 3G support for TMOUS at the same time.


I would hope these two tablets can be purchased without a carrier plan. I want to not be chained to a particular cell carrier.

In its current form, this product isn't worth shipping.

If it has come out in early July as it was supposed to, it might have stood a chance, but now it's a case of too little too late.

Just seen some videos of the Viewsonic Viewpad 7, and if the estimated price is accurate (£350), it kicks this device to death. Obviously the Galaxy Tab is also a contender, but early indications are that it may be priced at the wrong end of the spectrum for this sort of device.

I noticed that on the Huawei website they  have renamed the table the "ideos" s7 to match their new cheap android cellphone called "ideos".

I don't think it is ever going to be released in its present form at this price point as other have pointed out.
