If you lookup the specs on the Viewsonic website, the Viewpad 7 has completely different specs - QUALCOMM 600 Mhz processor, 512MB internal storage and 512MB RAM.
Well, I ordered one to see if this was really an Intel Atom N550 with 16GB memory. To my disappointment, the specs are as per the Viewsonic website (QUALCOMM 600 Mhz processor, 512MB internal storage and 512MB RAM) and I have returned this item to Amazon.
In the nutshell, the letdowns are: Slow processor (will not be upgradeable to Honeycomb, also will not support BBC player), No memory card included, screen resolution not very impressive.
However, if you are not too bothered by the slow processor, I must say that the tablet is very smart to look, feels expensive, has a responsive touchscreen, and comes with a SIM card slot and leatherette case. Which is why I have given 3 stars to the product.
Update: I see that the product description has now been corrected to "ViewSonic ViewPad 7 (7" screen, Android 2.2, ARM11 600MHz, 3G, Wi-Fi, BT2.1, Micro SD slot, front and back camera) - Sim Free"
Android market is well serviced and the management system on the device is simple to use. I find Tweetdeck works particularly well for Twitter and you can add all your social media accounts to it.
Life is reasonable if not streaming media or running apps constantly. Also turn off wifi/apps if not required, to conserve power. Charges quickly from mains or slightly slower from USB source.
Comes with the flexible case and good noise isolating, in-ear bud headphones. I found the flexible rubber was a bit too snug and the vacuum was affecting my breathing so changed the rubber buds and works brilliantly. Good volume even on a noisy tube.
Has 'flight mode' and vibrate capability. Does a mini vibrate when you use function buttons but you can switch off if required.
Virtual keyboard is ergonomic and device does that clever thing which changes aspect from horizontal to vertical to allow easier reading use when you physically tip it. POssible to type with both hands on the keyboard but I am a lady so I probably have slightly smaller fingertips.
Possible to load and set personal ringtones and message alerts but you need to get the instructions online to do this as it doesn't come with any except how to actually get the device up and running.
You will need to purchase a micro SD card with this product and your choices are 16MB or 32MB. If you choose not to, your camera and video capability won't work and the space for other media will fill up very quickly which will restrict what the tablet can do.Read more ›
Adobe Flash isn't compatible but Skyfire does the same thing better (uses less data when on 3G). You will need a micro SD card, as the internal memory is almost none existent, but that's £12 for a 16gb card. But if you can cope with using iplayer through the web interface on skyfire, this device offers significant financial savings over any other genuinely branded product.
Contrary to what one review suggests it does not need a special car adapter, but it is mini USB not micro USB like most new devices.
The main plus point is that it has 3g. Insert a sim card and you can get some terrific deals, e.g. 6 months internet for £20. I am not quite sure why anyone would buy a tablet with wifi only. If you want portability (and surely that is the point of a tablet) then the lack of 3g really limits you.
