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


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...

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...

Mixing a sluggish Windows tablet with an outdated Android one makes the Intel Atom-powered ViewSonic ViewPad 10 less than ideal for either OS.

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.

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 10pro


The ViewPad 10pro also tweaks the physical controls. The Power, Home, and Back/Undo buttons on the face of the ViewPad have been replaced with four touch-sensitive controls, more typical of Android devices. The new controls include Home and Back/Undo,...

Android and Windows operating systems available without dual-booting. Swype keyboard is intuitive and fast

Touch screen is glitchy. Limited storage space. Mediocre battery life. Gets hot

The ViewSonic ViewPad 10pro tablet offers some nice touches, like Android accessibility within Windows 7 and a slick new keyboard from Swype, but flaws like limited storage space and an unresponsive touch screen can't be overlooked.

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 Viewpad 10e


The 10e joins the company's other budget offering, the Viewpad E70, but bumps up the screen to a 10-inch 1024-by-600 IPS display. Inside you will find a 1GHz Cortex A8 Processor and 4GB of internal storage, which can be expanded via micro SD card. For...

ViewSonic ViewPad 10 Review


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...
