10.1-inch Viewsonic G Tablet Review!

The 10.1-inch Viewsonic G Tablet features 1024×600 resolution, dual-core 1Ghz Tegra 2 processor, 512MB DDR2 RAM, WiFi b/g, 16GB internal memory space, microSD card slot for up to 32GB more disk space, 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera, 1 mini HDMI for outputting to HDTV, 1 micro USB port, and 1 USB port.

Pros

The Viewsonic G tablet is one of the first Android tablets (if not the first) to hit the market with a dual-core 1Ghz processor, equivalent to what the iPad 2 has.

Price is right for a dual-core processor equipped 10.1″ Android tablet.

Cons

The Viewsonic lacks a back-facing camera, which means you won’t be able to take photos/videos as the 1.3 megapixel camera is front-facing only. ¬†Of course, for those who intend to use the Viewsonic as a media player device only, this might be a plus as it means lower pricing on the Viewsonic G Android tablet.

The Viewsonic ships with Android 2.2 but if you are willing to hack the device a bit, there’s many ROMs available for this tablet, meaning Android 3.0 Honeycomb should be available later down the road.

Verdict

The 10.1-inch Viewsonic G Tablet is the “lowest-priced” dual-core 1Ghz processor equipped Android tablet on the market thats capable of 1080P playback.

From hardware perspective, the Viewsonic G tablet stands up to par with the new Android tablet devices like Motorola Xoom or the Elocity A10.

Overall, the Viewsonic G Android tablet is perfect for budget-minded or users who are willing to tinker with their tablet to install new ROMs or upgrade to Honeycomb later down the road.
