iiView's already shown that it's not one to avoid a trend, and it's now hopped on the biggest one going with its new 10.2-inch Vpad tablet. Unfortunately, it seems that the company isn't as quick to update the specs as the form factor, as this one only packs some of the most basic, netbook-like internals, including an Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM, a 160GB hard drive, and Windows 7 Starter Edition for an OS. That will set you back $499, while $699 will buy you a slightly upgraded model with built-in 3G, an extra gig of RAM, and a 320GB hard drive. A bit of a tough sell in today's tablet market, to be sure, but you can place your order for one right now if it happens to strike your fancy.
