I have had the ViewBook 730 for about 3 weeks. I have used most Apple products and have a iPad2 and iPhone4. I also have an original Nook for about a year for reading. I was intrigued with the Android OS since I have a Linux laptop and was interested in trying the 7 inch size which I prefer for reading. My children have usurped my Nook whenever I turn my back and I wanted another reliable ereader. So far I am pleased with my purchase. The Kindle app works wonderful just as well as on my iPad and iPhone. The size is comfortable for reading and the backlit screen is nice for my daughter to read in the car while driving home at night. Web surfing is decent. The Wifi connection is not as strong as with my iPad. I have to be closer to the router for good signal. If I am downstairs I sometimes have to move to a closer room for decent signal. It is nice to have Flash for certain Web sites but it can run slow at times. The integrated Amazon store apps work well for MP3 downloads and certain Android apps but is not as complete as Android Market. I have not figured out yet how to get Android Market on this device. I do like that Amazon App store gives away a paid app each day and have picked up some nice games for the kids. The screen is a cross between a resistive and capacitive. The included pen works for certain things easier and the finger for other things. Overall not as intuitive as the Apple screens but it is also less than half the cost of the cheapest iPad. Battery life is good as an ereader or for playing music but runs out quickly with Web surfing and video watching. Android 2.2 OS is not as fancy as the Honeycomb 10.1 tablets but runs all the phone apps on the 7 inch screen well.Read more ›

It's good for $230 it's really hard to beat the price point.

-The sound is not very loud though, but the video runs pretty smoothly and the device is actually fairly quick.

-The viewing angle is not that great.

- It appears to be a hybrid of resistive and capacitive touch screen, so using a normal stylus on it does work as well as a capacitive stylus or your finger. It does not seem to be multi-touch from using it although this is not much of a problem to me at least.

I've only had it for a short time but I am enjoying it so far.

-very good price
-ability to write with a normal stylus without the lag of a resistive screen
-hdmi port

-No google market only amazon market
-pretty bad viewing angle
-it feels fairly cheap compared to other more expensive tablets, but that is to be expected at this price point.

It's a good tablet for the price and anyone in the market for a cheap android tablet will probably enjoy it. None of its faults are a deal breaker I think. It is probably the best tablet in it's price range from ones i have used.

Overall, the ViewBook performed OK and is meant to compete in the low-end tablet market with a price of $230. The ViewBook has some good features: 1) great screen compared to other resistive screens; 2) front facing camera; 3) mini-HDMI port; 4) Bluetooth; 5) played video formats including HD without any problems; and 6) handwriting recognition works fine. However, there are some negatives: 1) poor body construction; 2) poor screen (resolution & not capacitive); 3) slightly weaker processor; 4) no 1+1 nor multi-touch screen; and 5) significant difference in battery life between having the WiFi on and having it off. Unless you need a front facing camera and a HDMI port, I would rather buy a Nook Color and install CM7. If ViewBook 730's price was under $200, I would be more incline to recommend it if you are looking for a low-end tablet.

I love my new viewbook 730! I am just learning Android, so I haven't figured out everything yet (am having issues with 2 way syncing android calendar and google calendars - using more than one calendar, trying apps to work it, etc.) I have to say, though, this first experience is totally cool. I am using it as a PDA, up from my 8-10 year old little one. I love being able to actually type with more than one finger on the 7 inch screen rather than one little digit at a time with stylus only. The free writing/drawing stuff with the stylus in sketcher and notepad is AWESOME! Some really great stuff. I really think there has to be a way to fix my calendar problems (better be since that's a HUGE chunk of why I bought it) and that aside, this does so much more than my old PDA.

Still love this thing after a month. Got Calengoo to work great once I discovered I had to enter as the server name when setting up my accounts to sync. The only real gripes I have are there is no contacts stock/source app. I have found apps that needthat to run which would be cool...Amazon appstore does not have any basic one and there is no android market on this device fro me to get one. Really screws up the pda use for this. I found. A contact app or two that only let you work with your contacts on the internet but don't actually have the contacts on the device without internet which is just plain stupid if you ask me. Please give us ability to access and actually use our own contacts. Otherwise, like I said, I love it!
