ViewSonic has shown off the new ViewSonic G-Tablet for the first time At Pepcom’s Holiday Spectacular show in New York. The G Tablet is thin and light with a solid combination of features and performance.
The ViewSonic G tablet has ultra-glossy coating with 10.1-inch, 1024 x 600 capacitive display and powered by ARM-based NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor which should offer 8hrs of battery life running full 1080p HD video content while still providing 3D grahics, up to 10 hrs for 720p and 10 – 12 hours for general purpose work or fun and and support for Flash 10.1. With dimension only 9.96 x 6.5 x 0.5 inches, the ViewSonic G is about the same size at the ViewPad 10, but perhaps a little lighter.
The G tablet also comes with a 1.3MP camera on the back of the tablet, 1GB RAM, 16GB of Flash storage (expandable to 32GB), accelerometer, Micro SD card slot and one SIM card slot as well, Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR transmission, 802.11b/g/n WiFi and run Android 2.2 for operating system.
Viewsonic G-Tablet will also bundle an HDMI cable in the box, which attaches to a proprietary connector on the device. The G tablet will be released on October in the United States, for about $529. It surely looks like a great iPad alternative. Unfortunately, the G-Tablet won’t be Google certified, so no Android Market. However, sideloading apps is possible.
