Viewsonic ViewBook 730 7-inch Android tablet hits the FCC, gets the full teardown treatment

It isn't the ViewPad 7 and it sure doesn't look like this seven-inch wild child either, so what you're looking at is another entry from Viewsonic, the e-reader focused ViewBook 730. It's a seven-inch tablet with WiFi sporting HDMI output and microSD in. We know it's running Android and, while the exact flavor remains to be seen, based on the lock screen image shown in the device's manual it's not looking like the ViewBook 730 will not follow the Iconia Tab A100 as one of the few seven-inchers to be rocking Honeycomb. Android 2.X looks to be on the docket for now. Additionally, that manual talks about copying APK files around to install apps, making Android Market inclusion sound a bit doubtful, too. All that should equate to a low-low price, but such expectations are never safe in this world.
