At the beginning of this month, we brought you news of Viewsonic’s 10-inch “G” tablet making an appearance, along with specifications and a price of $399 from Office Depot in-store or online. Just four weeks down the line, retailer Staples, have taken the tablet off their shelves due to subsequent problems.
Only recently Toshiba with their Folio 100 was dealt with the harsh reality that it too would have to discontinue its tablet with reports of quality control issues. So what do we know about today’s news on the G? Not really that much, although the snippets of information we have been able to source from Engadget are just suggesting a “manufacturing defect.” It seems that both companies, Staples and ViewSonic have been very quiet in giving us any indication of what the problem was or is.
The guys over at Tech Pinger.com have stated that with the G tablet’s arrival just a few weeks ago, customers will be disappointed to hear of no equivalent replacement at this time.
Did you purchase one of these? Can you report of any problems? Let us know below.
