Viewsonic ViewPad 7: It's Just a Brand Name

Tech2
14 May 2011
  • Excerpt: First off and just to get this out of the way; if you see the resemblance, you’re right, the ViewPad is a carbon copy of the OlivePad - No difference whatsoever. From button placements to Dual camera placement, ports et al. Obviously, the OEM for the device is the same as Olive’s. Even the originality of the name is just blah as all of these companies are simply taking a cue from Apple. After the iPad we’ve seen Pads galore. C’mon guys, where’s the creativity?

  • Conclusion: The Viewsonic Viewpad 7 has a long and impressive feature list, but its flaws outnumber its positives.
  • Pros: Responsive touch screen. Accepts SIM cards from any GSM carrier. Makes and receives voice calls. Full access to Android Market.
  • Cons: Expensive. Screen resolution warps graphics. Odd on-screen keyboard configuration. Both cameras produce blurry images. Tinny sounding stereo speakers. Little internal storage.

ViewSonic ViewPad 7 Review

Phone Arena
8 December 2010
  • 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. Sadly, this makes the ViewSonic ViewPad 7 pretty uncomfortable for watching movies or simply using the tablet in certain positions.
  • 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

ViewSonic ViewPad 7 Review

LAPTOP Magazine
22 November 2010
  • 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. It's about $100 less than the Verizon Galaxy Tab, and you should be able to plug in a SIM Card for making phone calls and surfing the web when you're beyond hotspot range. Unfortunately, we couldn't get the 3G to work as advertised.
  • Pros: Access to Android Marketplace, Can use with AT&amp, T or T-Mobile SIM card for phone calls and data, Good battery life, Loud speakers, Carrying case included
  • Cons: Picks up fingerprints easily, Slower processor and lower-res screen than Galaxy Tab, Front-facing camera wouldn't work with Qik and other apps, Trouble with 3G data

CNET
12 September 2010
  • Summary: The ViewPad 7 offers a solid platform for Android 2.2, but it comes off as an oversize, overpriced smartphone--not a Netbook alternative.
  • Pros: The ViewSonic ViewPad 7 delivers Android 2.2 on a 7-inch screen, with a powerful processor and rear- and front- facing cameras.
  • Cons: The ViewPad 7 is a doppelganger for the Samsung Galaxy Tab and shares many of its shortcomings, including a frustrating keyboard and awkward size. Lacks camera flash. Bring your own memory card.

  • Conclusion: If nothing else, the ViewPad shows Atom-powered Android tablets could have a bright future - but this one is too raw to recommend
