ViewSonic ViewPad 7 Review

 

At $479 (expected to be lower through some outlets), the Viewsonic ViewPad 7 is worth a look for those who crave an inexpensive Android tablet that's easy to tote, especially if you don't want to be locked into a two-year contract. It's about $100 less...

Access to Android Marketplace, Can use with AT&, T or T-Mobile SIM card for phone calls and data, Good battery life, Loud speakers, Carrying case included

Picks up fingerprints easily, Slower processor and lower-res screen than Galaxy Tab, Front-facing camera wouldn't work with Qik and other apps, Trouble with 3G data

ViewSonic ViewPad 7

 

The ViewPad 7 offers a solid platform for Android 2.2, but it comes off as an oversize, overpriced smartphone--not a Netbook alternative.

The ViewSonic ViewPad 7 delivers Android 2.2 on a 7-inch screen, with a powerful processor and rear- and front- facing cameras

The ViewPad 7 is a doppelganger for the Samsung Galaxy Tab and shares many of its shortcomings, including a frustrating keyboard and awkward size. Lacks camera flash. Bring your own memory card

Viewsonic Viewpad 7

 

The top of the tablet houses the Power button and a speaker. An additional speaker sits on the bottom panel, and on the right side are volume controls and slots for a micro-USB card and a SIM card. (More on that SIM card in a moment.) On the left are a...

Responsive touch screen. Accepts SIM cards from any GSM carrier. Makes and receives voice calls. Full access to Android Market

Expensive. Screen resolution warps graphics. Odd on-screen keyboard configuration. Both cameras produce blurry images. Tinny sounding stereo speakers. Little internal storage

The Viewsonic Viewpad 7 has a long and impressive feature list, but its flaws outnumber its positives.

ViewSonic ViewPad 7e Review

 

Known for being a prominent monitor manufacturer, we've already seen ViewSonic dabbling in the tablet market for the last year now with devices like the Android powered ViewPad 7 and ViewPad 10. Coming around for a second at bat with a 7” offering,...

Since the iPad, a flurry of large screened capacitive devices have been bidding for our cash, from Apple's own offering through to the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the Dell Streak and the soon to be released BlackBerry PlayBook. It's understandable that...

ViewSonic ViewPad 7e

 

ViewSonic's ViewPad 7e is a 7-inch tablet with a 3.2-megapixel camera, 600x800 pixels touchscreen, Wi-Fi connectivity, Bluetooth and a memory card slot. It gets all the power from a 1GHz processor, while Android 2.3 Gingerbread is running the show.

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

Viewsonic ViewPad 7e Review

 

For a price of around Rs. 13,000, there is no denying that this is an extremely affordable tablet, targeted at the demographic that is willing to spend on a device that is one level above the basic category. It is built better than some of the...

Built well, Classy looks

No access to original Android Market, 3D User Interface is very sluggish

Review: ViewSonic Viewpad 7

 

When you hear the name ViewSonic you probably think of computer monitors. The three parrots huddled together is as a logo many of us have stared at as we type away on our computers. But did you know they also make tablets? Well they do now. ViewSonic...

Nice Design ; Responsive touchscreen ; Comes with case ; Priced at $400 CDN

Older processor ; 512 MB internal memory ; Mediocre cameras ; Making phone calls is awkward

The Viewpad 7 certainly is a nice looking tablet, even if it does steal its looks from the iPhone 4. But don’t be fooled. This is no Apple product. The processor feels a bit outdated, the cameras are lack-luster (with no flash) and the the lack of...

ViewSonic ViewPad 7 Tablet Review

 

The first casualty of the tablet wars.

Portable and nicely constructed

Bad screen quality, slow CPU and not the best for typing

On the connectivity side, the ViewPad 7 comes equipped with all the radios found in higher-end Smartphones such as UMTS, Bluetooth 2.1 and 802.11b/g Wireless Networking. The 3G on the device can be used to make or receive calls as well however, using...

ViewSonic ViewPad 7 Review

 

ViewSonic ViewPad 7 is a 7-inch tablet with Android 2.2 OS, a 800 x 480-pixel capacitive touchscreen and the option of voice calls and data transfer via any mobile operators' network

Solid and convincing performance ; Responsive display and quality multitouch ; Excellent connectivity and call quality with SIM card

Poor on-screen imaging ; Landscape orientation required for many applications ; Poor rear-facing camera quality ; Not enough built-in memory ; No Flash support

On the other hand, this is a very solid and tough tablet which enables comfortable telephone calls and data transfer, even if the user is often on the go. Patches for eventual shortcomings can be easily found on the Android Market. However, the bottom...
