ViewSonic gTablet gets Amazon price drop
ViewSonic hoped to push sales of the gTablet through to a combination of two factors. The first is a price drop at Amazon down to $280, and the other is that it's been overclocked to a 1.4GHz clock speed. XDA member pershoot boosted the chip from its standard rating of 1GHz by loading CyanogenMod 7. The 10.1-inch tablet runs on Android 2.2 and has Wi-Fi along with 16GB of built-in memory.
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.
