ViewSonic ViewPad 10

CNET
7 August 2011
  • Summary: Mixing a sluggish Windows tablet with an outdated Android one makes the Intel Atom-powered ViewSonic ViewPad 10 less than ideal for either OS.
  • Pros: The compact ViewSonic ViewPad 10 dual-boots into both Windows 7 and Android, and was recently updated to jump from Android 1.6 to 2.2.
  • Cons: The device lacks physical controls for volume or screen orientation, and the Android side is stuck at version 2.2 and doesn't include the Android Market. There are some frustrating interface issues, and we spent too much time troubleshooting network connectivity problems.

ViewSonic ViewPad 10

9 July 2011
  • Excerpt: What makes ViewSonic ViewPad 10 is the fact that it's dual-boot tablet, capable of running both Windows 7 and Android OS. Unfortunately, Android runs in version 1.6 but I guess that can be updated. Rest of the specs, include a 10.1-inch touchscreen, 1.6GHz processor, 1.3-megapixel front camera (no camera on the front), Wi-Fi connectivity, 16GB of internal memory which is further expandable with microSD cards.
  • 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

ViewSonic ViewPad 10

PC Magazine
13 June 2011
  • Conclusion: It may be priced competitively, but the ViewSonic ViewPad 10 it doesn't come close to competing with the best tablets available. Windows is crippled, Android is out of date, and the elegance promised by tablets is replaced with lumbering awkwardness.
  • Pros: Dual-boot offers Android and Windows. Windows OS supports Flash.
  • Cons: Tablets aren't Windows friendly; you'll miss your keyboard and mouse. Android 2.2 isn't the tablet-specific Honeycomb, just scaled up smartphone software. No Android Marketplace. Button functions change depending on what application you're using. Tweaked Android OS doesn't support Flash.

ViewSonic ViewPad 10 – Double Dose of Calamity

13 June 2011
  • Excerpt: ViewSonic has been making Windows-based tablet PCs since model year 2001, and that’s the reason why it would have been infuriating for them to see Apple iPad ruling their market in 2010. So, the company decided to do, what they must do and that is to, embrace Android. As a result of which we got the ViewSonic ViewPad 10, which we are reviewing here.

Dual-Boot Tablet Is Double Dose of Disaster

Wired
27 May 2011
  • Excerpt: There’s a really famous road — maybe you know it. It’s paved with good intentions. And by now you should know all too well where it leads. It must have been aggravating for ViewSonic — which has made Windows-based tablet PCs since 2001 — to see its market destroyed by the Apple iPad in 2010. So the company did what it (and everyone else has) had to do: embrace Android.

  • Summary: The ViewPad comes in at a good price, and we like the idea of a dual operating system, but it just doesn't offer a fluid user experience
  • Pros: A dual operating system allows you to swap between Android 1.6 and Windows 7
  • Cons: There's no application store, which could be frustrating
