Great deal on Viewsonic G tablet

Viewsonic G tablet

If you want a great deal on a 10″ tablet that beats the socks off of, well, anything else under $800 or more, head over to Woot. Today they have the Viewsonic G for $280, which is a great deal. It’s currently $370 on Amazon.

I have one of these and I love it. Buy it, go to xda-developers.com and install the TnTLite or Vegan ROM, and you are good to go. Working Google Market, Flash, wifi internet, the whole shebang.

Yes, you need to be a little bit of a techie to flash the ROM, but it’s not rocket science. If you can copy a file to a mini SD card, you can do it.

I have heard some people complain about “viewing angle”. I don’t know what they are talking about. The screen is gorgeous. I have no trouble seeing it. Personally, I think that’s “user error”. (Hint: the screen is the side with the shiny glass.)

And no, it does not dual boot anything: it runs Android. Awesome, awesome Android.

This is a great deal. I am tempted to buy a second one.
