Woot – purveyor of discounts and cheap devices for the day, is offering the ViewSonic G Tablet for a much cheaper price, albeit for today only. This Android-powered tablet that measures 10″ across will retail for $284.99 inclusive of shipping and handling, and despite lacking the high resolution display (it has just 1024 x 600 resolution) that is found on other newer tablets from Motorola, Samsung and Toshiba among others, it is still capable by itself, especially if you’re don’t mind having fun with custom firmware by updating the operating system. Other hardware specifications that you might want to consider before taking the plunge would be a 1GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 dual core processor, Google’s Android 2.2 operating system, 512MB RAM, 16GB of internal memory, Wi-Fi connectivity, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and video playback support. Initial users have complained that this tablet is rather sluggish when running on standard software, but if you have third party ROMs installed, you can surely expect a better performance level.
