Amazon Deals: Tegra 2 gTablet for $280, ezPDF Reader Free App of the Day


A couple of good deals to start the morning off today courtesy of Amazon. Firstly, their free app of the day: ezPDF Reader. I don’t look a .PDF files while I’m on the go – and if I do, a free one from the market or a preinstalled option works for me – but you can’t get mad at free. Check it out, it might be decent.

And that leaves us with a device – Viewsonic’s gTablet. It’s a Tegra 2-enabled device but is only pre-loaded with Android 2.2. Still, with 16GB of storage, an HDMI port, and a 10.1 inch display for $280, it’s a steal. (Especially considering it debuted at $500. And let’s not forget about the possibility of Honeycomb in its future now that NVIDIA has cleared that nasty story up yesterday.) You can find the app here, and the tablet here. [Thanks psych0t0uc4n!]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Sweet deal! Gmorning

  2. I’m contemplating on whether to get this tablet. Even though it’s marked down, I don’t know if it’s worth the $279 price tag.

    1. I LOVE mine. You will need to go to XDA and put a custom ROM on it, but it is very easy to do. After that, it is fabulous!

    2. I have one, and I love the thing. It was worth the $375 I paid for it, and coupled with the sale of my netbook (The tablet replaced my netbook), it really only cost $175 :)

      1. what about the cost of the netbook? (assuming you paid for the netbook and didnt get it for free)

    3. I had one for about a month, yes it works great with the help of XDA. However, please note the screen viewing angles are NOT good. As a matter of fact there is a lot of silvering on the screen. That was to big of a problem for me. I sold it on Ebay and bought a Galaxy Tab for $350 (on Ebay w/ 3G & a case). Now the Galaxy Tab is beautiful! I would suggest that at wifi only for $350, new or wait and purchase the Acer Iconia on the 24th for $400 that is of course if you don’t mind a headache inducing screen.
      Hope that helps.

      1. Just to clerify – the Acer won’t give you the screen headache, the Viewsonic will.

  3. ezPDF Reader is the *only* PDF reader that you’ll want to read PDF files on a phone or tablet, because from what I’ve found is the only one to re-flow the PDF text through OCR technology, and you get to make the fonts as big as you want, just like on epub files, while still reflowing to fit the screen. I wish Aldiko and Laputa readers would use this technology as well.

    The only improvement I’d like to it is so you can flip pages in “reflow mode” the way you flip them in normal mode. In reflow mode you have to scroll down, the way you’d scroll down a PDF on a PC.

    1. yeah but some idiot gave it a 1 star review because Adobe Reader is free

  4. Am I missing something here? The Amazon site says that this tablet has 2000mb of ram (2GB), but it really only has 512mb… what’s the deal?

    1. It’s must be a big typo in the Amazon’s description (copied from some sort of notebook)

  5. Rather spend the extra $120 for the Asus.

  6. Did you also see that on Electronica, Asus states they will definitely release the Transfoer for $399? I’ll for that instead.

  7. I bought that tablet the first day it came out and it was so horrible I returned it the next day. It was slow, unresponsive, and had constant lock ups and reboots. I would not want one for free.

  8. I have this tablet, and it is great with a custom rom. I use tnt 4.2, but there are many for this device on xda. It does not have HDMI out.

  9. Wonder how much it matters that Nvidia said they’ll never release Honeycomb drivers for this older tegra 2 chipset.

  10. Good price for dual core, as stated earlier on a reply. NOTE the screen’s bad viewing angles, a HUGE problem for this device. Also you will be able to get the Acer Iconia for 120 more…and it will have Honeycomb out of the box!!!

  11. It doesn’t really have an HDMI port. You have to get a dock from somewhere (over seas perhaps I haven’t seen one in the US). I had one and it was decent. The touchscreen is of mediocre quality as well as the screen. Also It just randomly locked up one day and was caught in a boot loop. I returned mine to sears.
