ViewSonic tempts with buy-to-try tablet deal

Free lunch? No such thing

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

ViewSonic is to let punters try out its 7in Android tablet for free.

Well, sort of. There's a catch: you have to buy a ViewPad 7 first, and you only have 30 days to make up your mind. You can't apply for a refund for the first 20 days after purchase.

ViewSonic has form, having tried this sort of offer before.

If, during that time, you decide you'd rather have an iPad 2, a Motorola Xoom or somesuch, you have to send the tablet and proof of purchase back to ViewSonic at your own expense.

ViewSonic said it will give you up to £10 to cover P&P, but irrespective of what you actually paid for the tablet, you won't get back more than £325, the RRP, according to ViewSonic's Ts&Cs.

The offer doesn't apply to ViewPads acquired through mobile phone network operators.

You can read all about it at ViewSonic's ViewPad site.

ViewSonic's offer ends on 24 April 2011. ®
