ViewSonic tempts with buy-to-try tablet deal

Free lunch? No such thing

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

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. ®
