Viewsonic ViewPad 7e – ViewSonic’s budget tablet is equipped pretty well – review
8 October 2011
Conclusion: But seriously, judging by the demos, the design is the only problem – I guess we’ll have to wait and see how it performs and holds up in real life use. Until then, however, the ViewPad 7e can easily be recommended as a great budget tablet for those who want to get the most features for the price,...
Viewsonic ViewPad 7x – the world’s first Honeycomb 7 incher is here
3 October 2011
Conclusion: Overall, the ViewPad 7x looks like a winner – it is certainly one of the best 7 inch tablets I’ve seen this year, and it would look great in any home, office or on a car dashboard (as a GPS navigator) – if the price is right, it’s a keeper!
Conclusion: The built-in GPS works well with Google Maps – we could see ourselves using the ViewPad as a large satnav. 32GB of internal storage can be supplemented via microSD. The 600MHz processor falls below our expectations and adds to the feeling that you’re paying a lot for a solid but not ground-breaking...
Summary: The ViewSonic ViewPad 7 pleasantly surprised us in spots and disappointed a bit in others. The device proved to be very responsive and actually offered better overall performance than we expected in anything from simple web browsing to a bit of 3D gaming.
Pros: Decent midrange tablet performance, Good, durable build quality, Multitude of IO and expansion options, Android 2.2 FroYo out of the box
Cons: Lower res, lower viewing angle screen, Slower 600MHz ARM11 core CPU but didn't hold it back too much, Slightly bulky around its edges, Low resolution camera (3PM)
Conclusion: To wrap up, the ViewSonic ViewPad 7 is cheaper than the Samsung Galaxy Tab, and rightly so as it can't really compete with it on any other point. The 7-inch screen is a nice size, but other than that it fails to present the user with a pleasant experience as far as resolution and viewing angles go.
Pros: Phone capabilities, Solid build, Good loud speakers, Android 2.2
Cons: Very bad viewing angles, Placement of 3.5mm headphone jack, No Flash Player 10.1 support, Slow processor
Summary: At $479 (expected to be lower through some outlets), the Viewsonic ViewPad 7 is worth a look for those who crave an inexpensive Android tablet that's easy to tote, especially if you don't want to be locked into a two-year contract.
Summary: New gadgets hit the stores almost everyday but there are only a few among them which are decent enough to be laid hands upon. The ViewSonic ViewPad 7 is the latest gadget in the market that is in same lines as the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
Summary: Look and feel The ViewPad 7 is a bit on on the heavy side compared to rival tablets, though its flat glossy black and silver trim are reminiscent of the iPhone’s new industrial look Ease of use The Android OS is generally easy to use, though there’s no set up process to take you through loading on...
Pros: Slick design, runs on Android 2.2, can make phone calls and send texts
Cons: Laggy touch-screen, low-res display, slow A-GPS, browser doesn?t support Flash, expensive for its specs
