    This seems to be the same spec as the gPad, although the version I'm looking at

    Viewpad 10S 10 Android 2.2 Tablet - Misco.co.uk

    ...is a Wifi only version.

    Does anybody (have any experience with this/know if this will (allow/actually be compatible)) with the custom Roms. I basically want to get an Android HDMI Tegra 2 device that has access to the actual market. Unless Notion Ink get back to me with a purchase option, my options are either waiting on the next generation (Acer/Toshiba/Xoom/LG etc...) or this Viewpad 10s.

    I may end up getting the Viewpad anyway, as I have a Milestone (Droid in US) so can pull any free apps on this and transfer them. But having an answer on if I COULD use the custom Roms would be a swaying factor for me.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can give me.

    The specs on that show an HDMI and a 3300 mAh battery. The Viewsonic gTab has no HDMI port and a 3650 mAh battery. I know that those may be just minor differences but if in face it doesn have an HDMI port then it's safe to assume that there is defiantly going to be a difference in the software somewhere.

    Hi. I believe gtab and Viewpad 10S are basically the same. I have checked the specs + processors. There are few minor differences + no hardware buttons on Viewpad 10S. Custom ROMs for gtab should be ok. Just ordered one from Misco.co.uk earlier today.

    Hi. I am in the same boat here. I live in the UK, and received my Viewpad 10S yesterday. It's performance is below par. However, it has the same processor etc as the Gtab. Can the gtab experts on this forum please tell us wether gtab custom ROMs are compatible with viewpad10S?

    Thanks

    The official Android market is really easy to install on the Viewsonic Viewpad 10S,
    1. Download the file from here http://www.filedropper.com/marketupdate0_1
    2. Save the file to MicroSD on your PC
    3. Insert the Micro SD (Make sure it is of reasonable size) and go through settings to software update, and then browse to the zip file
    4. Select the file and it will restart the device and you will have market installed

    Works a treat for me

    We need custom ROMs for Viewpad10s. Custom ROMs for gtab are not compatible.

    Did you try to load a Gtab ROM to the 10s?

    By the way can somebody explain how I can connect the 10S (by wire) to a computer I tried male usb male usb but this does not work. The only possibility I see is by the dock connector,

    Looks very good. Wonder if Viewsonic has worldwide support for this device. Not listed on their webpage yet.

    Post shipping cost is around $500USD, which is actually okay for some countries that do not have the Advent Vega or the Viewsonic gTablet directly available in local quantities.

    Still needs some custom ROMs.

    Hi Android074
    I did install gtab custom ROM to 10s. Only got a white screen, and it would not boot. I have just updated 10s firmware (using software from viewsonic website) and it is working fine now. When you use the USB male to male, press both power and back buttons together till 10s is recognized by your PC as APX. Then update driver software (also from viewsonic website).

    Hi FroyoTablet
    Market zip file from that link appears damaged. Couldn't use it.

    Probably needs a different kernel. Any word from Viewsonic on kernel sources?
