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 woot.com

Since the G-Tablet was the first Nvidia Tegra 2 Tablet ever released here in the states many have it and have developed ROM's for it. Check out the G-Tablet XDA section. There is stock Android 2.2 and 2.3 ROM's, as well as a very stable running Android 3.0 Honeycomb ROM. Have a 3.0 Honeycomb tablet for only $279, that is a deal. I used to have this device before getting the Xoom and overall it runs great and gaming works like a charm. It runs all the Tegra 2 games with no problem. My personal favorite ROM for the G-Tablet is the Vegan ROM.

Overall the ViewSonic G-Tablet has very solid build quality, stereo speakers on both sides, docks you can buy for HDMI out and I've played many many games to my 56" HDTV with the G-Tablet. There is only really one con for the device in my opinion. That is the screen. The LCD display has very poor viewing angles, like the Archos 101 did. Other than that it is a great device and you will not get a Tegra 2 tablet for that price in a long, long time. Anyone that can't afford the pricey Xoom, or the upcoming Samsung Galaxy Tab's I suggest you jump on this before it's gone.

    Youse a damn lie. There’s no honeycomb ROM for the g tab yet. Much less a “very stable” one.

       Youse got a big attitude problem. Been released in Alpha by Viewsonic and will be new 3.0 when Google releases final.
      And don’t be calling us liars just because you didn’t want to take the time to Google, Yahoo or whatever the results.
      By the way besides a couple of issues with the Camera the whole release is very stable.

    Pass on the g tablet!!!!!! mine has been at the g tab repair place for 5 weeks and they won’t even tell me when I can expect it back. It seems there is a problem with the main board and they don’t know how to fix it, per support there are 10 others with the same problem. They tried to tell me that I had opened it up and damaged the main board, I didn’t open it up, and they wouldn’t accept the unit under warranty until I filed a protest. STAY AWAY FROM THE G TABLET.

    No Honeycreams for this tab. You are seriously misinformed.

       Already beta release of Honeycomb 3.0 new edition as soon as Google release it. Been so for over 10 dyas. Gotta read and pay attention because it surprised the hell out of me. I have one and wouldn’t change it for the world. Been using TNT 4.40 and it is fast sweet and when the new Honeycomb releases will be as good if not better than Zoom and othjjer wanna bees.

    Oops, I meant to say port. There is a Honeycomb Port of the SDK. We won’t have official ROM’s til the source code is released for 3.0

    I do know there is a nice CyanogenMod 7 ROM for the G-Tablet, then get hizzmatic’s Honeybread theme and use the CM7 theme chooser to apply it. That looks very much like honeycomb.

    I have one of these and it is a very sweet machine. The factory installed OS is crap, but once you load in one of the customized ROMS.. you have a powerful little tablet. Dual core processor, plays videos beautifully, wonderful Market APP access. For $280 now, it’s a steal. Theres NO Honeycomb rom yet like the article suggests. But, it does have a HUGE market following with plenty of different roms.
