Cons:

  • Lacks physical controls or screen orientation; no Android Market; interface issues; network connectivity problems.

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 Windows is crippled, Android is out of date, and the elegance promised by tablets is replaced with lumbering...

You know the Reese's ad about how chocolate and peanut better go better together? I bet whoever came up with the ViewSonic ViewPad 10 had the same aspiration. The problem is this dual-OS tablet is not a delectable combination. Think creamed spinach...

At £425, the ViewPad 10 is £26 more than an iPad 2, is heavier, with less than half the battery life and has an awkward dual-booting system. It may provide an opportunity for businesses to keep using their Windows software while exploring...

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...

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...

We're not overly impressed by the ViewPad 10. Not so much because of the hardware - which is decent, if not outstanding - but because Windows 7 in touch mode on a small screen is a big disappointment. We were surprised to find the Android experience...

The dual-OS ViewPad 10 is a decent, if uninspiring, piece of hardware, but even the relatively touch-friendly Windows 7 can't compete with the slick appeal of iOS on tablets. Android, meanwhile, is hobbled by the lack of mobile connectivity and...
