Out of the box, the Viewsonic Viewpad 10e lacks any Google goodies or the official Market but a ton of free apps can be found in the preloaded 1Mobile Market. I found up-to-date versions of GMail, Skype, the SwiftKey keyboard, the official Facebook, Twitter and BBC News apps and Google Maps to name only a few.

If you want the real deal there is a very simple instal process to add the Android Market and key Google apps.

In the top right hand corner you will find a 1.3Mp camera that works a treat with Skype video calling. There is no main camera but that’s not a loss in my book.

Music sounded pretty good through the two speakers tucked away at the bottom. Furthermore, all 720p video content – no matter what format – and most 1080p MP4 files played smoothly in the bundled Vortex media player. Also, games such as Angry Birds and Sprinkle ran perfectly.
