4:4 ratio screen?
That would make it a square wouldn't it? Come on guys, try harder.
ViewSonic is taking aim right at the iPad - and would-be HP TouchPad owners - with a tablet sporting a 9.7in, 4:3 ratio IPS LCD screen. And, yes, like those fondleslabs this one, the ViewPad 10e, has a 1024 x 768 resolution - the best, we think, for folk who regularly switch from portrait to landscape and back again. …
Pretty poor decision but kinda understandable - I don't think Viewsonic are one of Google's "Honeycomb" partners (they mainly rebrand third party tablets) and Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS) isn't out yet.
If I were Viewsonic I would have guaranteed an upgrade to ICS when it is open-sourced.
Bet the tablet isn't cheap either.
Hopefully it'll be a similar enough size to an iPad that it can use iPad accessories - about the only gripe I have with my Advent Vega (apart from the viewing angle, but for £200 you can't grumble too much) is that its funky dimensions make finding a decent case a real struggle.
Yes, at last!!! We finally have an iPad competitor on the market. 4:3 aspect ratio AND an SD card slot to differentiate it.
My only complaint is that it's not a full sized SD slot, so I'll be forced to buy an expensive microSD card and adapter for my digital camera.
With the wide viewing angles as well as the 4:3 aspect ratio, digital photographers finally have something to replace the photo album or packet of photos that we used to hand round to friends.
I bought an 8gb micro, WITH full size adapter for $8.99 on Friday, needed it for the new digital camera i'd bought, and I only buy micros now. That way they can go in my phones (all micro) or the digital vidcamera I already had (SD), and I wasn't sure if this was maxi or micro.
gotta love the flash media bins at the checkout at Microcenter...
