ViewSonic ViewPad 7e Review
0. phoneArena 02 Dec 2011, 04:43 posted on
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, they’re hoping to reel in some people with their affordably priced ViewSonic ViewPad 7e model...

Wow. That's pretty horrible.
BTW, why are you guys using a shrunk down pic of a Galaxy Tab 8.9/10.1 in the size comparison and calling it a Tab 7 Plus? The first thing I thought when I saw that pic was, "Holy CRAP that thing is big!"

As usually as it happens the bandwagon of crap tagging takes off when someone just comes with a point of view so high in the sky that everything else looks uncivilized. I just got some Viewpads 7e for my wife (which happens to be a database programmer for a major software company) and kids, and they liked a lot. If one wants to hold a 7" wide format tablet in your hand from side to side, then should go to a bionic surgeon and have implanted a larger hand, that way you can hold two. You cannot expect to have in your hand a Mercedes Benz coupe or a MiniCooper if what you have to spend after the mortgage crisis of the last two years is about $150 or less (not $200 or 250) with various extras, much less was the cost during BlackFriday/CyberMonday days at various online and brick-mortar places. If one think the Viewpad is total crap, then that means one has plenty of $400 to $900 to get a flagship tablet and drop it in favor of every new pad that comes up. BTW I have myself a cheap ($70) MID epad/apad which allowed me to play around with the firmware, change and reroot to explore the ins and outs of Android and its Linux kernel. Hybrid-resistive screens are taking over back the market: they allow you to inexpensively use tablets to write like a person, a grown up civilized person, instead of reliving again and again past times of finger painting or even using those crappy rubber boot styli. Forget the keyboard, use a stylus and relearn the joy and craft of handwriting (get a good hw recognizer, there are quite a few good ones out there). That's what tablets and slates were for, to write on, to draw, to create! Ciao.
