And The Winner Of The ViewPad 7 Tablet Competition Is

Last month, ITProPortal and Viewsonic teamed up to give away one ViewPad 7 Android tablet in the wake of a new campaign by the company called "Try Our Tablet for Free".

We are now glad to announce that the winner of our ViewPad 7 tablet is Thomas Hebditch who correctly said that the tablet could be obtained on trial for up to 30 days.

The tablet can be had for as little as £290 from Insight. It will be facing the likes of the Samsung Galaxy Tab, the HTC Flyer and the RIM Blackberry PlayBook device.

We did criticise the tablet last December for being poor value for money, but its price has since been dropped by more than £100.

Interestingly, the bigger version of the tablet called the ViewPad 10S, is equipped with a better processor, a bigger screen, 16GB onboard storage and a camera and costs £275, cheaper than the ViewPad 7.
