ViewSonic blames gTablet recall on poor Flash, rough UI

ViewSonic gTablet recall prompted by Flash and UI

ViewSonic late Monday explained that the sudden recall of the gTablet was owed to a combination of unfinished software from Adobe and itself. The company has been affected by the same lack of Flash optimization for the Tegra 2 chip and won't have an official option for Flash 10 until late January, when Adobe hopes to have a faster version. Users who still feel they need Flash can download it separately, the company said.

ViewSonic gTablet pulled from Staples

Google and NVIDIA together faced their second setback together in as many months today as a leak on Saturday revealed that Staples was pulling the ViewSonic gTablet from shelves. The Android 2.2 tablet is being shipped away due to a "manufacturing defect" and its display area removed entirely. No indication has been given to the CrunchGear tipster that the gTablet will ever return, and customers seeing this week's flyer will be told that there's no equivalent replacement because of how soon it was brought to market.

Advent Vega Flash yanked without Adobe deal

Advent later on Monday said (PDF) it would pull support for Flash 10.1 from its Vega tablet until early 2011. The decision was made as Flash did "not exhibit the optimal performance" of NVIDIA's dual-core Tegra 2 chip with some Flash sites. Adobe hadn't certified Flash for the Android tablet and needed to optimize it for the Tegra 2 first, Advent said.

The designs would go across the range and would be "geared for both tablets and smartphones," Yeung said.
