    Viewsonic Android Pad Launches before Samsung Galaxy Tab?


    Just a week before the official Samsung Galaxy Tab launch, Viewsonic has surprised us with a release of their own. AndroidTablets.net is reporting that Sears has the Viewsonic 10.1" Nvidia Teagra 2 tablets available to order for only $379! With a price tag more then $200 lower then the Galaxy Tab, it could definitely have an impact on first day Galaxy sales. As an added plus, some Sears stores actually have the unit in stock right now... so call your local Sears store and check availability.

    Compare this specs between the two units and this one might just win you over:

    NVIDIA Tegra 2 Dual ARM cortex (1Ghz) Capacitive Multi-Touch/Multi Tasking panel 10.11024 X 600 TFI LCD Screen Mass Memory 16 GB Mini USB x 1; Full size USB x 1 1.3MP Front acing Webcam Earphone x 1 Micro SD card slot 2 x 1 W speaker Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n G sensor/Light sensor Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR 3500mAh/7.4V Li-polymer Battery Life 8-10 Hours Slim design (267 x 173 x 14.3mm) Wt. 820 Grams Buttons: Home/Back/Menu/Volume/Power OS / Android 2.2 Headphone Jack Built in Microphone.

    Who's ready to order?! (You can jump right to the Viewsonic Viewpad forum @ AndroidTablets.net here: Viewsonic Tablets)

    Wow, those specs are pretty impressive for $379. Too bad its so close to the holiday season, and I'm saving for a down payment on a WRX. Plus, I have a DroidX...can't see much use for a tablet. Either way though, its an amazingly spec'd product.

    Specs sound good, but usability is another. The video on this is less than impressive. Slow response, custom ui that doesn't look all that great, no flash working, and no market. darn it. sounded good at first.

    Looks pretty cool. I personally am more interested in the HP Slate tab.

    They use to make very good monitors back in the CRT days Haven't used many of their LCDS.

    I would love to see someone install a home replacement app just to see if they can get a smoother user experience (as we all know, not all home replacements are created equal, some are coded better than others)
