Reviews for the Viewsonic ViewPad 10

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.

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.

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?

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.
This display format is used for small tablets and a few very big smartphones (so big that they are rather tablets). This is for customers who want a small portable tablet with a display which is at least much bigger than usual smartphone displays.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Viewsonic: Founded in 1987 (under the name Keypoint Technology Corporation), Taiwanese-American ViewSonic Corporation (renamed in 1993) is best known for displays/monitors and projectors, visual display devices including liquid crystal displays, interactive whiteboards, and digital whiteboard software.
50%: This rating is bad and very rare. There are only a few models that are rated so poorly. If the source is reputable, then a purchase is probably not advisable.
