The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Low life

Like the iPad, the Viewpad 10e’s screen is the perfect size for reading e-books, so all you need do is download the Kindle app or Google Books – both available from 1Mobile – and bibliophile heaven beckons.

The only fly in the ointment is the Viewpad's battery life. Fair play to ViewSonic for being honest about the 2,700mAh power pack only offering around 5.5 hours and, indeed, between four and five hours is all you can expect. Loop a 720p video and the lights go out at just over the 3 hour mark.

Great value if you can cope with its battery life limitations

Verdict

As it stands the Viewsonic ViewPad 10e is a rather impressive large screen tablet with an attractive price tag. There are a few rough edges, like the absence of the Android Market and mediocre battery life, but nowhere near as many or as serious as I’ve encountered on other budget tablets. Battery life aside, its other shortcomings can be easily dealt with or should be eliminated by the imminent ICS update that it's due. ®
