ViewSonic's gTablet hacked to run Notion Ink Eden firmware

Notion Ink apps ported over to ViewSonic gTablet

XDA-Developers member gojimi has created a hack for the ViewSonic gTablet that will let them run some of the Eden firmware from the Notion Ink Adam. Eight of the Eden's apps have been ported over, including Notion Ink Canvas, Calculator, Browser, Calendar, Keyboard, Sniffer, Mail, and tablet version of QuickOffice. All are Android-based and should work on any ROM.

The ports aren't perfect, however, with two of the main issues including taking a long time to open the calendar app for the first time and the potential to force close. The mail app is an update.zip file which requires flashing, just like ROMs. [via SlashGear]
