I'm happily running it on my flip-screen Acer because that laptop will effortlessly switch between tablet and notebook modes in a trice, not because it's the best system to marry with a touchscreen.

Reviews Word on the street for the ViewSonic ViewPad 7x

It's sturdy, and a bit hefty, yet slim enough to fit into even small bags.

The fact the Atom is still tied to Android 1.6, and the restrictions on the Android Market for devices that aren't smartphones, makes that OS an incredibly off-putting experience.


5.2 Out of 10

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


The capacitive screen works well and despite the low memory capacity the Atom CPU helps make sure the Windows OS is rarely sluggish.
by TechRadar (Nov, 2010)
Nope, the micro-SD slot is completely essential, as a large quantity of the apps you might wish to install in the increasingly geriatric-feeling Android 1.6 OS will do precisely nothing until you add in an SD card.
by TechRadar (Nov, 2010)
The microSD slot can hold a card up to 32GB in size, which is important as the internal 16GB storage is mostly used up with the Windows install.

It felt very sturdy in the hand too, though as a result is quite heavy at 835g (the Wi-Fi iPad weighs only 680g).

Having a relatively speedy processor humming away in there means the Microsoft OS has a fighting chance of actually being usable, and at 1.66GHz the Atom N455 actually punches pretty well for its weight.

It's a little on the heavy side, but nothing too serious.

You can of course add more storage (up to 32GB) using the microSD card slot.

Network technology

While the ViewPad 10 is available in both Wi-Fi and 3G versions, we tested the Wi-Fi-only model.

The Android OS is the only similarity the Viewpad boasts compared to that poor excuse for a paper-weight.
