Excerpt: For those looking for a budget-friendly alternative to the iPad 2 or other high-end, 10-inch tablets , Viewsonic is offering up the Viewpad 10e for just $279. The 10e joins the company's other budget offering, the Viewpad E70, but bumps up the screen to a 10-inch 1024-by-600 IPS display.
Summary: Overall for the money the Viewpad is a great device. The screen alone puts the Viewpad ahead of its competitors. You just need to think what you will really do with a tablet like this. Watch videos, listen to music, read books, play games, browse the web and possibly video call people.
Conclusion: On the surface the ViewPad 10e looks to be a bargain, while the promise of Ice Cream Sandwich tantalising. In reality though, this is really a folly for those that like to tinker and have money and time to spare.
Pros: Good design, will be upgradable to Ice Cream Sandwich, cheap
Cons: Sluggish, Not honeycomb, no Android Marketplace
