The device seems underpowered when you compare it to the hardware of the Eee Slate, w500 or new Lenovo Slate but the Intel Atom processor is actually quite speedy and the 1 GB of DDR3 surprisingly handles everything well. This system has never bogged down on me even though I have been downloading torrents, web browsing, watching videos, or streaming music all at the same time.
The capacitive touch screen is excellent and works great with Firefox (with Chrome you need extra drivers). You may have to try 2 or 3 times to drag little sliders but you can adjust the sensitivity from being precise to being more generous. After months of usage though, I have no problems interacting with anything on the screen.
The weight of the device is fine for one-handed use in most positions but at first I found that my thumb would often end up touching the bottom of the screen, which will negate any input from your finger. I think I'd prefer the bezel of the Hanvon B16. Currently, however, I no longer have any issues with the bezel.
I can't really speak about battery life since I normally have it plugged in my car but while in the house I've never had an issue with the 5 or so hours it provides. Obviously, you can configure your power options to no end in Control Panel.
The virtual keyboard is almost perfect. I have used a mouse, keyboard and ext DVD drive as well with no issues, and typing slightly lengthy notes with both index fingers is not a big deal.Read more ›
1. 16GB of memory is touted for this product, but I find that most of that is taken up by the OS installation leaving about 2GB available. WUWT?
2. Android let's you turn WiFi and Bluetooth on/off independently, but in Windows, they con only be both on or both off. When I tether the Viewpad to my Blackberry with BT, the WiFi is just wasting battery. Come on, let me have independent control of wifi and BT.
3. I need to get a non-glare protective film.
4. When will I be able to update Android? I can't tether to my Blackberry in Android 1.6
The built is nice and acceptable
The expansioons such as sd card slot, USB are good, I wish I had a micro USB port for this kind of device
The upgrade to 2.2 was smooth and easy.The camera and microsd card slot had soome problems but could fix it
The screens/android 2.2 is not optimised for large screens yet acceptable. with coming advanced versions, it may get better (3.1 onwards)
The winidows boot adds to the utility/productivity of the pad and can do any thing that your pc can do with limitations (1.66 Ghz and 2GB ram) Ofcourse, the hard drive of 32 GB is somewhat on the low side for a netbook PC but....you see, you cant get every thing you may have to compromise....it is altogether a lot more better interms of utility as compared to an Ipad.
price ofcourse ~500 is affordable but could be in upper 300s
For people who want to try, can root and use custom roms available on the web...
In summary, if some one is thinking of buying a tab, I would suggest this
I picked the ViewPad as a replacement for an aging notebook running XP.
It would have cost a lot to upgrade to Windows 7 so I got a replacement.
I was also interested in an Android device so I could learn about it.
I got both. I can use it for my Windows work (internet, email,
watching Hulu and Youtube videos) and my grandchildren can play
games on Android 2.2. There are two bad things about the ViewPad.
First, 16gig SSD is not enough with Windows 7 and Android 2.2. I had
to do some surgery on Windows to get 1gig free space. A micro SD card
is a must. I have a 32gig. Two, Android 2.2 thinks the ViewPad is a
phone. This causes a problem when trying to install some APPs.
Other than that the device has worked out just fine for what I wanted.
