Reviews for the Viewsonic gTablet
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.

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.

This is a typical display size for tablets and small convertibles.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.
This weight is typical for small tablets.
