"Good value for the price of 169 euro (in my case)"

Pros: Recently I bought a ViewPad 7. I believe the type must be at least one year old so that means really old in terms of tables. When I wanted to charge the battery, it didn't work at all. Viewsonic gave a great service though and they sent me a new one. - B
Cons: When I wanted to charge the battery, it didn't work at all. Viewsonic gave a great service though and they offered me a new one. - Quality of screen, speakers, microphone, camera are weak. But they work. You can connect the audio to external devices thou
"Cumbersome as replacement for phone, but more useful"

Pros: Great screen, removable/expandable SD, integrated 3G/WiFi/BT, Portable HotSpot, More flexible development options so more interesting applications and real multitasking.
Cons: Unable to root the OS using existing tools, and as a result it is difficult to work around rough edges. I am confident that as install base increases this may change. One thing that will not though is the poor location of the pwr button.
Summary: A fairly unique design concept when it came out in that it had/has 3G SIM card compatibility - and there's still no competition on that front from other pads. So no need for stupid add-on dongles. Everything about the product is great except that it has completely insufficient RAM. A ridiculous corner to cut by ViewSonic. Even with memory management apps loaded, the ViewPad is always locking up for lack of internal memory.
Summary: ViewSonic ViewPad 7 is a cool tablet boasting of some really amazing features. The 7-inch capacitive multi-touch screen is terrific, and dual camera along with 3G, WiFi and blue tooth connectivity all make it a really hip one!
Summary: Processing of order first class. Set up the pad with the help of my grandson. All okay with access to the internet using my BT Hub. But for some reason access has now been locked out and there is apparently no way of unlocking. Consequently I cannot get on the internet I can at my dughter's home from her modem. Apart from that all apps are good but if I cannot find a way to unloc kmy BT hub then I weill have to consider returning the product.
Summary: For a while its a great machine, lots of fun with the apps etc. However, it has an almost fatal flaw: even with a 16G card installed, some important Apps (Hotmail, Facebook, etc) only runs from the internal memory card - which is tiny and filled up too quickly. Downloading apps go straight to internal memory before you can move to the SD card. This is a major flaw.
