ViewSonic ViewPad 7 Review

0. phoneArena posted on 08 Dec 2010, 09:26

At the lower end of the Android tablet market is the ViewSonic ViewPad 7, a 7-inch tab with phone functionality, a front and rear camera and Froyo on board. Looks good so far, but does it deliver?...

This actually looks like something a relative of mine might like. A few questions if you don't mind.

Android Market: I saw it on there but you didn't use it. Is the market loaded by default or did you have to hack it on there? I know it's not supported on all tablets. Also, I would be getting it to use as wi-fi only tablet with no cellular package at all. Will this device support that usage?

How would it do as an e-book reader? I've got someone on my Christmas list that wants an e-book reader, but doesn't have great vision, so I've been looking for a low-price Android that doesn't just suck. This seems like it would be a great option since video and gaming won't be a priority to this user..

I didn't see any other power port structures on the device. Is the device charged through the micro-USB like standard handsets or is there another port there I didn't notice?

It maybe too late to give a respond to above question

But right now viewsonic G tablet is not available in Singapore or many other places.

I purchase viewpad 7 as a compromise
but I hope to help to promote on viewpad 7

Viewpad 7 has Market, Aldiko, Maps build in

Frankly, if you just able to bear with Wifi then Archos may be another option

I got far-sight or presbyopia that viewpad 7 does help a lot as a phone.

Viewpad only got one micor-USB and use it for charge and connectivity.

There is software inside the "CD drive" when connect to a PC
That is the USB ADB driver need to work with MyPhoneExplorer

There is a reset hole that most will not notice but so far after two weeks
I did not make use of it and hope will not forever
