ViewSonic G Tablet powered with Android 2.2 and NVIDIA Tegra 2 reportedly withdrawn from the Staples stores due to Manufacturing Defect, No indication has been given that the ViewPad G tablet will ever return, and customers seeing this week’s flyer (after the break) will be told that there’s no equivalent replacement because of how soon it was brought to market.
The ViewSonic ViewPad G Tablet boasted a 10 in capacitive touchscreen, and runs the latest 2.2 “Froyo” version of Android which is designed to be consumer friendly. The 10-inch G Tablet has strong specs: a bright 1024 x 600 display, a front-facing webcam.
Neither Staples nor Viewsonic has explained what the flaw was or whether the gTablet would return fixed.
The news of the failure comes just over a month after another prominent withdrawal of another NVIDIA Tegra 2-based tablet. UK retailers pulled the Toshiba Folio 100 after stores received a large number of complaints about both defects and overall poor build quality.
