While some will still be tempted by the possibilities of dual-booting Android and Windows on one tablet, wise buyers should probably pass up the Viewsonic ViewPad 10. The Apple iPad is still the standard by which all tablets are measured, and the ViewPad 10 falls pretty short. Thanks to an awkward collection of hits and misses, this tablet would probably be more attractive with a smaller price tag, competing against the Cherrypal CherryPad ($188 direct, 2 stars) and other low-end competitors.

At £425, the ViewPad 10 is £26 more than an iPad 2, is heavier, with less than half the battery life and has an awkward dual-booting system. It may provide an opportunity for businesses to keep using their Windows software while exploring Android. Most consumers will probably want to look elsewhere though.

60% Review: The ViewSonic ViewPad 10

The ViewSonic ViewPad 10 is a decent device that requires a lot of tweaking and work on it before it can be taken seriously. Priced at Rs. 38,000, it goes head on against a similarly priced Apple iPad. It’s possible to get an 64GB Apple iPad in the grey market. The iPad in comparison is a much more refined product as a whole. The ViewPad 10 would be recommended if it were priced at a more wallet-friendly Rs. 25,000 for example. The glaring issues with the device could then be ignored.

ViewSonic - ViewPad 10 review
Source: IT Reviews English
We're not overly impressed by the ViewPad 10. Not so much because of the hardware - which is decent, if not outstanding - but because Windows 7 in touch mode on a small screen is a big disappointment. We were surprised to find the Android experience much more compelling, despite its limitations. With a more tablet-oriented version of Android, the ViewPad 10 might be a different story altogether. But for now, at this price it's going to struggle to attract buyers away from the iPad

Is this dual-booting Windows 7 and Android 1.6 tablet any good?

ViewSonic ViewPad 10 - Screen, OS and Value
Source: Trusted Reviews English

Pricing is intriguing. At £499 MSRP, it is (shock, horror) more expensive than the Wi-Fi only iPad. However, while its build quality and screen might not be up to the same standard, it does offer a boatload more features and options, which cost a lot of extra money on Apple's tablet – if they're available at all. Also, the fact that you can actually use this ViewPad as your main PC (if you're a light user, and when hooked up to a monitor, mouse and keyboard) does give it a significant advantage. Nonetheless, at that price we still think it's too much.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

Intel Atom: The Intel Atom series is a 64-Bit (not every model supports 64bit) microprocessor for cheap and small notebooks (so called netbooks), MIDs, or UMPCs. The speciality of the new architecture is the "in order" execution (instead of the usual and faster "out of order" execution). Therefore, the transistor count of the Atom series is much lower and, thus, cheaper to produce. Furthermore, the power consumption is very low. The performance per Megahertz is therfore worse than the old Pentium 3M (1,2 GHz on par with a 1.6 GHz Atom).


N455: Intel Atom CPU for Netbooks with integrated DDR3 memory controller and GMA 3150 GPU. The performance of the system should be only minimally faster than the previous Atom N280 / GMA 950 combination.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


10.0": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks. The advantage is, that the subnotebook/netbook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display has the advantage, that it needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes. It is difficult to use high resolutions. » To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


0.84 kg: This subnotebook is one of the most lightweight of all notebooks and can be carried very easily. There exist hardly any models in this extreme class of weight. 7-9 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.


Viewsonic: ViewSonic Corporation is a manufacturer and provider of visual technology, specifically CRT monitors, liquid crystal displays, projectors, plasma displays, HDTV technology, and mobile products, including tablet PCs and wireless monitors. The company was initially founded as Keypoint Technology Corporation in 1987. In 1990 it launched the ViewSonic line of color computer monitors, and shortly afterwards the company renamed itself after its brand. 2009 they entered the netbook market with own products.


50%: This average evaluation is exceptionally bad. There exist hardly any laptops, which are rated so negative.
