just saw this device today on engadget.. ive been looking for a phone/tablet but this baby is fast enough that I might just use my g1 for calls and use this for everything else.. I wonder if there is going to be any modding for this device? Wonder if we can get marketplace that would be nice.

I am very interested in this tablet as well. If someone could get the market working, it would probably be the best android tablet out there right now.

I'm probably going to call my local SEARS, tomorrow - I pre-ordered an Archos 101, but this thing might actually be better (and available quicker). It's a little pricier than I was looking to spend, but it's probably very fast.

The Viewsonic 10 inch Android powered G-Tablet will be available for purchase via Sears online and in-store beginning this Tuesday. The tablet features Android 2.2, Nvidia’s Tegra 2 chipset running at 1GHz, 512MB RAM, 16GB of internal flash memory, microSDHC expansion slot, 10-inch capacitive display and a front-facing camera for video calls via Wi-Fi.

Pricing is currently set at $379.99, but the online store incorrectly points to a listing for the ViewSonic ViewPad which is a similar tablet that includes dual-boot capability with Android and Windows 7.

Someone posted that video. It shows that we really need someone smarter than I to get on this thing. This thing needs stock android ASAP, or at least something that removes the overlay and gets the normal apps on it. I am thinking of getting one if my local sears has them and a good return policy. The key will be installing a hacked version of market on it. Or if possible just installing the market APK and editing the file that tricks it into thinking it's a nexus.

I also purchased one tonight and it is utter junk with this TapnTap UI loaded on it. I did manage to load Launcher Pro and this thing was FLYING! Lets get this project moving!
