"Very good hardware, very disappointing software !"

Today there are so many different type of tablets in the market. Not mentioning that iPad's name is almost dominating the market. But many other products such as ViewSonic ViewPad 10 are recently introduced which are competing with huge names like Apple and Samsung.

This tablet is dual-boot and runs Windows 7 and Android both. The default is set to Android 1.6. After turning on, the device shows an option to choose between Android or Windows, and by default loads Android automatically (if windows is not chosen manually).
I was disappointed that the default Android version is 1.6 which is a very old release (the last one these days is Android 3.0 for tabled and 4.0 for mobile phones), but Android runs very smooth and fast on this device.

The screen is capacitive which is very responsive. This device doesn't feel very light comparing to others but the housing is very solid and well built. The maximum resolution of the screen is 1024x600 with LED backlight. The screen is very bright but not as good as Samsung pad or Apple iPad. This device has a 1.6 GHz processor and 1G RAM which looks enough in my opinion. The device is very responsive and fast. It has an internal solid state memory of 16GB and also a microSD card slot as for expanding the capacity if necessary. Like many other tablets, HDMI and mini VGA ports are available, but it is nice that a 2 USB inputs and normal audio jack are also mounted on the device's side. It's a big plus in my opinion.

One of the down sides is that this device doesn't have 3G therefore you can not use internet connection through your mobile network provider. You have to find a WiFi connection to enable internet access. Also there is no LAN slot on the device.
The device runs Android very smoothly and fast, but Windows 7 is very laggy and non-optimal.
