ViewSonic gTablet

I’m starting to get tired of highlighting the ViewSonic gTablet in these bargain alerts, but retailers keep putting the thing on sale — and today’s deal just might be the best yet. TigerDirect is offering a brand new ViewSonic gTablet for $249.99 plus free shipping through the company’s eBay store.

The gTablet has a 10.1 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel capacitive touchscreen display and a 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor. The tablet runs Google Android 2.2 instead of the newer, more tablet-friendly Android 3.x Honeycomb and it doesn’t come with access to the Android Market. But you can either install a third party app marketplace such as the Amazon Appstore or root the tablet and install a custom ROM with a hacked version of the official Android Market.

In other cheap Android tablet news, I just noticed that Amazon is running a promotion on the latest Archos handheld devices. You can pick up an Archos 28, Archos 32, or Archos 43 from Amazon and get $15 in credit to spend on apps at the Amazon Appstore.

  1. Of course it would be so low cause it has had so much of negative reviews about it sluggish performance. Read laptopmag. Its really bad. Furthermore, the return rate of this device is so high. Don’t think its cheap because the market is so competitive. Might as well add a bit more and buy a Toshiba or an ipad2.

  2. As a side note, that Archos 43 must be a fairly solid device considering it is averaging 4 stars after 57 reviews. I guess the main criticism is it has a resistive screen and doesn’t come with Google Marketplace, although there is probably a hack. 

    1. Yes, there are ways to get Google Market on any of the Archos tatblets.  The larger 70 and 101 are capacitive touch, while just the smaller models are resistive.  But Archos did a good job on the resistive screens and they’re nearly as responsive as capacitive.

  3. Yeah, $249 is definitely a new low.  Interesting that Woot had it for $25 more just a few days ago. Normally you expect Woot to be the one setting a new low.
