ViewSonic has not got a great track record when it comes to tablets – sure it has produced a couple of decent budget tablets such as the neat ViewPad 7+, but the less said about the ViewPad 10 Pro the better. If you've seen the scores for the ViewPad 10e, you'll be aware that it follows in the footsteps of the 10 Pro. At first we thought the device was pretty well built – we tried to get some distortion on the display by pushing it, but there was no give, which impressed us. However, after a few hours of use, the fact that a slim strip of plastic on the back of the tablet had come loose became apparent. It had come off in one corner, leaving a gap where dust could get into the inner workings. It also meant that when we used the volume controls we had to push really hard to get the volume to move down or up. The power key was hard to use too – it was very stiff. At 200 quid, these are not things you expect to encounter. Looks-wise, the ViewPad 10e looks much like the other Android devices on the market. There's a slim black bezel around the display, which offers just enough space for you to hold it, without making the whole device too big. It's not exactly a lightweight, although at 620g it's lighter than the new iPad.
Having already attempted to take on the Android tablet market with the ViewSonic ViewPad 7 and ViewPad 7e, ViewSonic is back with a cut-price device.The ViewSonic ViewPad 10e pairs what, at face value, appears to be an acceptable array of entry-level specs with a cheap and relatively cheerful shell to appeal to those not convinced by the iPad's much higher price tag.Looking to steal a couple of market share percentage points from Apple, ViewSonic has forgone a number of core Android values when adopting Google's operating system for the ViewPad 10e, most fundamental of which is the overlooking of the now standard 10.1-inch display in favour of an iPad-mimicking 9.7-inch offering.With the unwritten rule of the tablet market seeming to be 'if you can afford it, plump for the iPad', ViewSonic has looked to dramatically undercut the market leader in an attempt to win favour with the masses, jumping in at a low price with a very impressive £199 retail tag in the UK, and $399 cost in the US.This is significantly cheaper than the entry-level iPad 2, which starts at £399, or $499.
