|Ella on the gtablet|
I take my Viewsonic gtablet to work with me every day, and every single time I get home Ella is at the door asking me "Daddy? Can I play da Angry Birds or your toy now?" (By "toy" she's referring to my gtablet. That stems from the first day I have it. I brought it home and told her "That's Daddy's new toy. You don't touch it." ... Obviously over time I've let her begin to play games and read books on it.) Video link of Ella playing on the gtablet.
The coolest thing, in my opinion, that I've seen that comes stock is the ability to snap screen captures. It appears to be a native application as it was available in the OS that it came loaded with (DG2.01, or Android 2.1) and was still there after I manually updated to DG2.20 (or Android 2.2 Froyo).
|LauncherPro Plus 0.8.5|
I was able to install most of my usual apps, including LauncherPro Plus, some Angry Birds and Opera Mobile (which needs tweaks yet).
I believe I was able to get Flash working too. All I did (after root and update) was rip the apk from my gtablet, remove the stock flash apk, and replaced it. In Opera Mobile I'm able to play some internet videos, however using KidsMode (which requires Flash) I have yet to succeed.
In closing, for $105 (with sales tax) and with manually updating the OS to DG2.20, it's actually a fairly solid piece to add to your Android device collection. I thought it was worth the gamble, and I'm glad I took that bet.
Now if we could just get some ROM love from the devs (and some releases from the manufacturer) I'd say this could be a great little everyday device. Some GApps would be awesome too. Still no access to the Android Market and I have yet to find a solid alternative.
