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.

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!

That video doesnt really show how bad that UI is. I bought this thing cause i saw a review on it. The guy on the video said it had stock froyo...which would have been amazing. Also the LCD has some really bad viewing angles...

Hopefully Tuesday I'll be picking one up... Or at least trying to convince my wife that I need this. I'll just tell her how awesome Angry Birds will be on it... :cool:

We need some serious support for this. First 10" tegra 2 tablet in the US! Can't wait to see what it can do with XDA behind it.

I went over there and the guy said they didnt have any yet but said he expected them on the UPS truck today. He took my name and number and said if I dont hear from him later today to call. I am really hoping that they get them in today.

    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.

    Disassembly

    Probably best to use a plastic iPod 5G tool versus a screwdriver.

    There are four screws hidden behind the rubber feet, in the back of the device. Pull off the feet, and unscrew.

    Then, slowly pull off the back of the device, using the iPod tool or small screwdriver - there are clips which hold it together. Once the clips are off, the back comes off.
