Due to the world’s current craze for always-out-of-stock Apple’s iPad 2, vendors with languishing inventory of Android tablets are doing desperate methods to unload them. One of these sellers is TigerDirect. The online store has cut $150 off from the original price and is now selling the powerful Viewsonic G-Tablet 10 for only $299.99! You don’t believe me? Go see for yourself, http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/SearchTools/item-details.asp?EdpNo=7212231&CatId=6957.
The Viewsonic G-Tablet 10 is the same item as the ViewSonic gTablet 10.1″ Multi-touch Tablet with Android 2.2 OS on Sale last month. It has a 10.1-inch capacitive display with 1024×600 pixel resolution and is powered by the latest 1 GHz dual-core Tegra 2 processor from NVidia! The G-Tablet/G-Slate is an Android 2.2 Froyo tablet but it can easily be upgraded to Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS. This tablet’s Nvidia’s CPU means it not excels in multi-tasking but also offers beautiful 3D gaming experience.
At $299.99, the Viewsonic G-Tablet 10 is already $100 cheaper than the lowest iPad 2 model and if you are as tightwad as me, you ought to buy it now instead of the Apple product. It is even far cheaper than the ViewSonic ViewPad 10 Dual-Boot Tablet PC. The G-Tablet 10 is a lot faster than the single-core but more expensive Samsung Galaxy Tab. It offers the same WiFi b/g/n connectivity and the same 16GB SSD storage but unlike the iPad, it comes with full Adobe Flash Player 10.1 support! Listed below is the detailed specs sheet on why you should really buy the Viewsonic gTablet 10.
