In order to stretch the Android interface to fill the 1,024x600-pixel resolution screen, ViewSonic skinned the OS to appear like a dashboard, with apps running across the bottom.

The ViewSonic G Tablet comes with a USB sync cable and power adapter. The power adapter is a necessary evil, since the tablet will not recharge over USB.

In order to better facilitate thumb typing on its wide-screen display, the ViewSonic G Tablet smartly splits the QWERTY keyboard into two sections. It takes some adjusting, but it's better than many touch-screen Android keyboards we've tested.
