If you are a fan of Woot! or just a person looking for a new Android tablet on the cheap, Woot! has a very good deal for you. The company is offering a special buy on the Viewsonic gTablet 10.1-inch tablet for $269.99. The tablet will ship for an extra $5. When the tablet first hit stores, it had a bit of a hard time despite the nice specs for the device. It was actually pulled from the shelves in Staples locations with the reason cited as a poor user experience.
The rumor had been that there was some sort of hardware defect on the tablet, which Viewsonic denied and later addressed with a new software update. The tablet runs Android 2.2 and has a dual-core ARM processor. The screen of the tablet is 10.1-inches and it runs on Android 2.2 for the operating system. Other features include a microSD card, USB port, 802.11n WiFi, flash, and DivX support.
This tablet has been on the market since late last year and the cheap price on Woot! will certainly help the tablet attract buyers. The tablets being offered are new and have a 1-year warranty. The tablet is 0.5-inch thick and weighs 1.5 pounds. Woot lists the specs as a 1GHz ARM Cortex-A9 processor, 512MB of DDR2 memory, 3D graphics processing, and support for 1080p video playback.
