7-inch ViewPad is either a normal-sized tablet or a gigantic phone

When viewed as a tablet, ViewSonic's new Android-based ViewPad is pretty reasonably sized at 7 inches. Heck, it might even be a little small. But then when you realize it has full phone functionality, it suddenly seems almost comically huge.

Sure, you wouldn't get rid of your normal phone and try to start carrying this thing around with you anywhere, but just the idea of holding this up to your face and having a conversation is pretty ridiculous.

In any case, this tablet will run Android 2.2, comes with both a front- and back-facing camera, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and GPS. There's no word on pricing or availability as of yet.
