ViewSonic GTab update adds Flash and USB peripheral support

ViewSonic has pushed out a firmware update for the GTab, which adds Adobe Flash support among other things. The new software - available as an OTA update - also adds to the GTab's productivity abilities, as it throws USB keyboard and mouse support onto the Android slate. There's also support for an external docking station, the addition of new international cities in the Weather app, and a few new languages supported. The OTA update should be automatically offered in the notification area. Meanwhile, if you're more into raw speed then it's worth checking out the 1.4GHz/1.6GHz overclock we wrote about yesterday.

Look what I just found, how exciting. This is the Vewisonic G-Tablet. it is an Android 2.2 tablet with a 10.1" LCD Display, front facing camera, and the highly popular Dual Core Tegra 2 Processor inside. It is extremely fast and runs very well. It has some custom user interface over android that is pretty crappy, but over at XDA there is tons and tons of development for this. It was the first Tegra 2 tablet released. This is a screaming deal for someone in need of a cheap tablet that isn't a china knockoff. For sale now at

Viewsonic ViewPad 10 Android / Windows / Mac OS X Tablet?

No way. Not even pretending to be possible. Not out of the box anyway. The origin of the title of this post comes directly from our pals over at TUAW, that Apple blog, where they've identified a rather large mistake in the press materials sent out by Viewsonic today with the ViewPad 10. The application you see here, on the tablet shown in the release for the ViewPad 10, is PowerPoint for Mac. This isn't the first time this sort of thing has happened with press materials and it isn't the last, but since this tablet already runs Android and Windows, heck, why not another?

ViewSonic ViewPad 10 Dual-Boot Android / Windows 7 Tablet Available Today

Behold the ViewSonic ViewPad 10 dual-boot tablet that allows you to work in either Android 1.6 (weird!) or Windows 7 on demand. This device runs a 10-inch 1024 x 600-pixel touchscreen display, 1.66GHz Intel Atom processor, has a total of 2GB of memory, connects via Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR, and has a 1.3 megapixel front-facing camera for video chat. The odd thing about this device (if all those specs weren't enough) is that we were introduced to a very similar tablet by the name of ViewPad 10 Pro, one that ran Android 2.2 Froyo, at Mobile World Congress 2011.

Even at a team size double that which we had last year, we were running ragged each and every day with meetings, photo snapping, an video capturing galore. In this post you'll find a selection of some (but not nearly all) of the hands-on, first hand news, and keynote speech collection posts we collected whilst on our journey through the halls of modern technology. This guide will continue to be updated as we wring out all the news we've still got stacked up in our hard-drives just freaking out to be released unto the world. Behold the curated 2011 Mobile World Congress Android Community breakdown.

ViewPad 10 Pro [Close Up]

Whilst sitting in a press conference atop the ViewSonic booth at this weeks Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, we were treated to a close look at their upcoming ViewPad 10 Pro. ViewSonic says that this version will effectively replace the ViewPad 10, and that the this new version will be running both Windows 7 and Android. The switch between operating systems will be made with a simple switch, with Windows 7 working primarily, and Android running in virtualization on top.

ViewPad 4 Tablet/Smartphone Hybrid [Hands On]

Today ViewSonic revealed to us the ViewPad 4, a device which they're adamant in not classifying as a tablet or a smartphone. Asking the small press conference we were a part of several times what we thought the difference between a tablet and a smartphone was, they've made it clear that they'd like to blur the line singlehandedly with this device. This device has a 4-inch screen, which ViewSonic says is the ideal place to blur the line between devices at, and it'll be running whatever the newest version of Android Gingerbread is when it's released.
