Review: The ViewSonic ViewPad 10

 

We've been following the tablet news all through the new year and into CES. As expected, a ton of tablets were announced at the CES 2011 convention this year. Each one of them will come with faster processors with multiple cores in them. We've received...

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...

ViewSonic ViewPad 10

 

Mixing a sluggish Windows tablet with an outdated Android one makes the Intel Atom-powered ViewSonic ViewPad 10 less than ideal for either OS.

The compact ViewSonic ViewPad 10 dual-boots into both Windows 7 and Android, and was recently updated to jump from Android 1.6 to 2.2

The device lacks physical controls for volume or screen orientation, and the Android side is stuck at version 2.2 and doesn't include the Android Market. There are some frustrating interface issues, and we spent too much time troubleshooting network...

Windows tablets have finally started to show a little bit of life, with the recent Asus Eee Slate EP121 and even the Acer Iconia Tab W500 offering a vision for the future of tablet-PC hybrids. Standalone Windows slate-style tablets, however, have...

Dual-Boot Tablet Is Double Dose of Disaster

 

ViewSonic's 10-inch, dual-booting Windows/Android tablet has a lot of heart and lofty goals, and is an utter failure on nearly every front.

Expert review by:

ViewSonic ViewPad 10

 

This 10-inch dual-boot tablet wants to be everything to everyone, but the ViewPad 10 isn't a compelling Windows 7 or Android slate.

The $679 ViewPad 10 feels like ViewSonic took a Windows 7 tablet and decided to throw Android on at the last minute to give it greater consumer appeal. While the Windows 7 experience is passable, the Android implementation is pretty awful. You can't...

ViewSonic ViewPad 10

 

When booting up, the ViewPad 10 offers you the two operating systems, and to shuffle from one to the next you use the home button. Once you've selected an OS, you'll need to reboot to switch to the other. Selecting one is done with the undo/back...

Dual-boot offers Android and Windows. Windows OS supports Flash

Tablets aren't Windows friendly; you'll miss your keyboard and mouse. Android 2.2 isn't the tablet-specific Honeycomb, just scaled up smartphone software. No Android Marketplace. Button functions change depending on what application you're using....

It may be priced competitively, but the ViewSonic ViewPad 10 it doesn't come close to competing with the best tablets available. Windows is crippled, Android is out of date, and the elegance promised by tablets is replaced with lumbering awkwardness.

ViewSonic is still trying to get some traction in the tablet space with their Android 2.2 Froyo powered ViewPad 7, but the manufacturer renowned for producing displays is pushing ahead with their latest creation – the ViewPad 10. Now this isn't simply...

Pictures Of Windows 8 Installed On The ViewSonic Viewpad 10

 

I bought my ViewSonic Viewpad 10 for one reason and one reason only and that was to be able to install the Windows 8 Developer build as soon as it became available. Today is that day and I was fully prepared to take tomorrow off because I thought I...

A week with the ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro Windows/Android tablet

 

ViewSonic's new ViewPad 10pro tablet lets you easily switch between Android and Windows 7, but there's a price to pay.

Runs both Windows 7 and Android software, excellent software, good battery life

Larger than other tablets, pricey, slow performance

At $700, including Windows 7 Professional and 32GB of flash storage, the ViewPad 10pro that I looked at is expensive compared to a similarly equipped Samsung Galaxy Tab or iPad 2. ViewSonic also sells a $600 model with Windows 7 Home Premium and 16GB...

ViewSonic ViewPad 10

 

What makes ViewSonic ViewPad 10 is the fact that it's dual-boot tablet, capable of running both Windows 7 and Android OS. Unfortunately, Android runs in version 1.6 but I guess that can be updated. Rest of the specs, include a 10.1-inch touchscreen,...

Verizon 4G LTE network is incredibly fast, 32GB microSD card included, Integrated kickstand works in portrait and landscape

Battery life is among the worst we�ve ever seen, No 4G LTE power toggle option, Kickstand in landscape orientation blocks microUSB port
