Great buy. VPAD7 is like an unlocked smart phone that makes calls and sends text msgs using either Gsm or Wcdma Sim cards from alsmost all cell phone providers. Web surfing and email is great while on the road. It has a solid Wi-fi connection with good range or you can use cell tower edge or 3G networks. Android Apps are amazing. The Gps reciever and maps are fast and accurate, better than my car Gps. Camera quality is so-so and hands-free sound volume is too low, so use the included headphones for calls and music. VPAD7 has a convenient micro SD card slot so that you can easily transfer music, pics and videos from other devices using SD cards or the micro USB connection. Battery lasts about 2 days when in normal use as web surfer and standby cell phone. Took me a while to get used to Android OS and touchpad gesturing and data entry, but it is easy to learn.

With the many free apps, you can customize the tablet easily. The GPS function is marvelous and works even better than my car GPS! It is also very easy to use, whatever you age. At half the price of the other tablets, I can't live without it.

I was really excited when I first got it, and I'm still pretty happy with the product right now and I've been using it for about a month now. It has really fun apps and overall it is easy to navigate through it. It has two cameras so I really like that, but the quality of the camera is not that great, but for the price, I think that's very good.

One problem I have with it is the phone storage, I cannot fit a lot of apps in it since moving the apps to the SD card doesn't mean it won't take up space in the phone storage, it just takes up less space. I find myself having to delete apps and downloading them again when I want to use it to save space. There are also a lot of apps that cannot be moved to the SD card like google plus and google maps, both which I really want to keep but take up a lot of the phone storage space.

Another problem I have with it is the settings button at the bottom of the screen. I think it is defective already because it gets selected even though I didn't touch it. It's annoying when it gets stuck and it's triggered like 20 times a minute when I'm trying to type something or when I'm playing a game. Also, it takes a long time to charge and it wouldn't charge in my car because I think there is not enough electricity going through the usb cable. However, it uses the standard usb plug so it's easy to find in any store.

A good note I want to leave on this product is that it comes with a really nice fake leather case. For the price, you get two cameras, usb charger and cable, and a sturdy black fake leather case. Also, I can plug in my SIM card and use it as an unlocked phone so I don't regret buying this product.

I bought the ViewPad because I needed an unlocked GSM cell phone for my daughter to use during this past summer while she was in the United States. I didn't want to get some cheap unlocked phone that I would have no use for afterwards and given the low cost, I figured it would be an inexpensive introduction to Android and the first generation of tablet computing devices. I haven't been disappointed!

She was able to activate it on T-Mobiles network in the U.S. (which coincidentally roams on Rogers in Canada) and I was able to use it on a trip to the Netherlands (roaming on T-Mobile). This truly is a world phone because it support 4 bands of GSM and 3 bands of UMTS. I just popped in a sim card and activated it on PC Telecom (which uses Bell's UMTS network without any problems, so you may be able to use it on Bell or Telus' networks). The power cord it comes with also includes different snap-on plugs for Europe etc, so no travel adapter required!

With the exception of the Samsung Galaxy Tab and the iPad, there aren't any (?) other tablets that you can use on a mobile network, certainly none at this price.

Yes there are limitations to this device: the processor is slower than most tablets, Android 2.2 can't be updated, no Adobe flash, no camera flash, internal memory is limited (so install your apps to the SD card) etc, but it seems to work reasonably well. Again, consider the price and if you can live with these limitations, then the ViewPad is for you.

Other comments on the ViewPad: The screen is clear and the multi-touch is responsive. The wifi capability is better than my iPod touch and I can connect to networks the iPod can't see. Finally, I find the core apps on Android, such as Contacts and the browser, better than on Apple's iOS (iPhone, iPad).

Delivery was very prompt.

The product has performed as advertised !

Our son recently spent more than 2 weeks traveling in Europe and for the duration of the trip our contact with him was via the tablet and its' Wi-Fi connectivity.

The Android operating system, to date, as been trouble-free and the size of this tablet is perfect for reading emails, social networking sites and for day to day travel use.

At this point in time and for the price that we paid for it - I can confidently recommend the device.
