Well that was quick, ViewSonic’s G-Tablet spotted up on Sears.com the other day apparently started shipping last month because the unboxing and review videos are hitting YouTube already. To remind you, it’s ViewSonic’s less heard about Tegra 2 tablet with a 10.1″ 1024 x 600 capacitive multi-touch display, 16GB external storage, 512MB RAM, Android 2.2, 1.3MP webcam, mini USB, host USB and SD card.
One reviewer mentioned below, matthewfrank, likes the hardware, port locations and build but didn’t like the custom GUI job on top of Android. He notes web browsing is fairly quick, the touchscreen is responsive, the display is bright, HD video playback is great and the accelerometer kicks in quickly. No Marketplace but he’s able to sideload apps (Another user, r34p3rex has got Marketplace working, video below). Flash was not installed either so he couldn’t view YouTube videos. Ultimately he calls it a “toy” since it’s not useful for his workflow.
