Reviews for the Viewsonic gTablet

94% Review: Viewsonic G Tablet with VEGAn-Tab ROM
Source: Justech'n English
I am much happier with the G Tablet now that I have the new ROM. It does not fix the bad viewing angles with the screen, but it helps make it more bearable. The VEGAn crew are also working on a new version of the ROM that is rebased on the Gingerbread (2.3.3) version of Android. I am very excited about this because it will allow the tablet to stay relevant for a while longer.

75% Review: Viewsonic G Tablet
Source: Justech'n English
So I really have mixed feelings about this tablet. As it stands I think there are more negatives than positives, but there is always the prospect of rooting the G Tablet and loading on a custom ROM, however that is beyond the scope of this review. So sticking just with the stock features and performance I have to recommend that you shy away from this Tablet. Even though it has a reasonable $399 price tag it is too limited to recommend. If the screen didn’t have such bad viewing angles, flash worked, and it had better performance then this would be a different story. I have a hard time recommending something that is difficult to use, and difficult to see.

10.1": The netbook/subnotebook has a quite small display format. Nonetheless, it is a common format for netbooks.

0.7 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.
