ViewSonic hypes the ViewPad 10e as a high-performance entertainment tablet but this simply wasn't our experience. Plasticky build quality should be expected for a cheap device although the ViewPad 10e does have a good screen and some useful connectivity. Ultimately it falls down on performance. We’d suggest it's not worth spending £199 to be constantly frustrated by an unresponsive experience.

Yes some people may get annoyed by the lack of Android Market but I think the for the money and the target market, the offered replacement is perfectly adequate. A Google contacts compatible app would be nice though.

Yes some people will also complain about the Viewpad only running Gingerbread, yes Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich certainly make the whole tablet experience better you can still have a lot of fun with the Viewpad.
