ViewSonic Confirms High Performance of G-Tablet

Software Upgrade Release to Improve User Experience

WALNUT, CA--(Marketwire - December 20, 2010) - ViewSonic Corp., a leading global provider of computing, consumer electronics and communications solutions, today responded to recent retailer actions surrounding its G-Tablet 10.1" Android 2.2 Tablet. The G-Tablet, based on the nVidia Tegra II chipset, is one of the fastest Android tablets on the market today, consistently leading industry benchmarks.

"We always listen to customers; while they love the hardware, they raised several issues about the user interface," Jeff Volpe, VP and GM for ViewSonic Americas. "As a result, our software partner is releasing an upgrade that will address customer concerns. Along with great performance improvements, customers will have the flexibility to use both a standard Android interface as well as a user-customizable interface which has been significantly enhanced since the product launch." Volpe went on to say, "ViewSonic is committed to its tablet endeavors and will continue with new announcements at CES in January."

Current G-Tablet owners will automatically receive the upgrade through their Wi-Fi connection by Friday, December 24. Users simply need to accept the request to install the upgrade. In addition, Adobe® Flash certification is targeted for the end of January 2011. In the interim, users can download Flash from various websites that distribute android applications.
