ViewSonic ViewPad 10 review


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Mixing a sluggish Windows tablet with an outdated Android one makes the Intel Atom-powered ViewSonic ViewPad 10 less than ideal for either OS.

Review: ViewSonic ViewPad 10


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.

Passable in Windows environment, just barely

Android implementation is an utter debacle. Buyers should ignore it completely and stick with Windows. Buggy from front to back, and from boot to shutdown. Reviewer feels bad that someone may get fired because of this review

ViewSonic ViewPad 10


It may be priced competitively, but the ViewSonic ViewPad 10 it doesn't come close to competing with the best tablets available.

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....

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...

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

ViewSonic ViewPad 10


Hands on: ViewSonic's new capacitive touchscreen tablet offers you the choice between Android or Windows 7.

Connectivity, meanwhile, is good by tablet standards. Two USB 2.0 ports allow you to plug in anything from external storage to peripherals, while a mini-VGA port can output video to a TV or monitor. On the wireless front we have both Wi-Fi N and...

Viewsonic ViewPad 10 review


Is this dual-booting Windows 7 and Android 1.6 tablet any good?

Decent hardware ; Nicely built ; Good screen ; Atom CPU

Poor battery life ; Only Android 1.6 ; No Android Market ; Clunky dual-booting ; Odd screen ratio

Viewsonic's first seriously sized tablet, the ViewPad 10, gives a perfect demonstration of how little the right hardware really matters in this growing market.
