Excerpt: ViewSonic ViewBook 730 comes with a 7-inch touchscreen, 1GHz processor, VGA front-facing camera, Wi-Fi connectivity, 8GB of built-in storage and a memory card slot. Android 2.2 Froyo is running the show.
Pros: Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape
Cons: Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
Conclusion: The ViewSonic ViewBook 730 is really designed for people that want a Kindle, but with a few extras that Amazon's bargain-priced devices don't offer (like a camera and a microphone). However, we expected a little more choices in apps and better overall performance. At the very least, we expect a little more from the features that are included on the device (like a decent quality image from the built-in camera).
Pros: Supports Pandora, Kindle, Angry Birds, and other apps, Expandable storage, up to 32GB, Super-fast start-up, Decent display, Excellent battery life
Cons: More video options please!, Not compatible with a lot of Android apps, Camera is shoddy, Slightly sluggish web surfing
Summary: The ViewSonic ViewBook 730 delivers decent features for $249, and we like that the Amazon Appstore is included. We also appreciate the loud speakers. Overall, though, this Android tablet underwhelms even when you consider its low price. The display is lackluster, and the sluggish performance and system crashes we experienced give us pause.
