Terrific phone/tablet, well worth its modest cost -- super performance!

Summary: This is a terrific unit, well worth the money, even at its original price of $ 300. It's my 2nd ViewPad7, the first having served me well and loyall for over two years until the power connector went flaky (likely my fault). It is fast, reliable, solid performance. Its form factor makes it easy to read even fine print on the Internet, it's quick on downloads and display, and the screen delivers a bright, readable image.
Summary: A good device for the price, this ablet use sim card to get Data and Voice, so when you need to make a phone call, you can use it without any problem. The screen si not very nice if you compare to a iPad...
Pros: Wide screen and very affordable when using for reading documents in PDF format; calling capabilities are more than desirable on this device and its inclusion was a right decision. GPS functionality is simply awesome when using this device.
Cons: Slow processor which sometimes becomes freezed when using hard processing programs.
Summary: Hi. My wife gave me this for my Birthday in June 2011. It was on my wishlist after extensive research. The one severe limitation of this tablet is the measly 512Mb onboard memory which leaves you with only 171Mb for apps and data. Even with a large SD card, you quickly run out of memory because of the number of apps that will only install to main memory or use that store data in the main memory even when installed to SD.
Summary: I was looking for a pad without high price tag, but decent quality and battery life. So I selected viewpad 7. The 7 inch capacitive display is responsive and the size seems perfect for a hand held tablet. If it had more built-in memory than 512Mb , then I would have given 5 out of 5.
Nice product comparing to the price. (Phone + tablet)

Summary: This is pretty good product. ViewPad7 is technically an Android phone. Phone quality is very good though it's a little big to hold. It's kind of speaker phone unless you use headset provided. If you make the sound minimum and you can use without headset fairly. Android 2.2 device can play Flash, but this one cannot due to CPU speed. (Adobe didn't permit this device) GPS module works good and if you buy some offline GPS apps you can use without data plan.
Summary: The ViewPad 7 is an excellent starter tablet: Quick Pros and Cons: Pros: Long Battery Life, Built In Micro SD slot, unlocked 3G, relatively light weight, office docs software, good responsive screen and very stury frame Cons: Slightly slow processor (not dual core), Android 2.2 (and no sight of upgrade or OTA upgrade). I wish Amazon had a kindle fire with unlocked 3G.
