Don’t confuse Viewsonic’s recently revealed G Tablet with the ViewPad we saw at IFA. This is an entirely different unit running Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chipset with Android 2.2 Froyo on board. Froyo you say? Yes, even after Google specifically announced that Froyo is not optimized for tablets.
Google has recently commented on the use of Android 2.1, Froyo – on tablets – and well, their words are nowhere near surprising. As everyone joins the tablet race, a lot of corners tend to be cut in order to become “second, to first” in a market largely dominated by Apple. The iPad has the most sales to date, and there’s still plenty of space for a successful second place.
