Difficult to recommend. That’s the verdict from Pocket-Lint who have reviewed ViewSonic’s new ViewPad 10s tablet in the UK – a 10.1 Nvidia Tegra 2 tablet that errs towards the budget end but it ends up failing in most aspects – poor viewing angles, fiddly on-screen menu navigation (there are few hardware buttons), cheap build quality (feels hollow, flexes on the back), no Google certification so no Android Market or Google apps, frequent app crashes and a very low quality front facing webcamera. Lack of mini USB meant they had to transfer data from computer via SD card.
On the upside, it is one of the cheaper 10-inch tablets out there (£279 – WiFi or £399 – 3G), has little front-end Android customization which some may prefer, has Flash pre-loaded and there are full sized USB and HDMI ports. The ViewSonic ViewPad 10s comes with Android 2.2 without the goodies, Nvidia Tegra 2, 512MB of RAM, 1.3MP front facing camera, full sized USB and HDMI, 7.5 hour battery.
