It might not be running Android 3.0 Honeycomb, but for $279.99 it'd be hard to pass up today’s deal over at Woot (http://www.woot.com/). The ViewSonic gTablet running Android 2.2 and featuring a 1GHz processor, 10.1-inch screen, and 16GB of on-board storage offers, for the day at least, another alternative for a cheap Android tablet that gives the rooted and modded NOOKcolor a run for it’s money. Another device that has received much love from the development community, the gTablet might be no Motorola XOOM, but for this price, who is complaining?

It doesn't have it officially, but I haven't dug into Android Tablet Forum (http://www.androidtablets.net) to find out if there's a GingerBread ROM out for it -- I know there's a CM 6 port for it, though.

:android-cry: I wish I could get it.

EDIT:

http://www.androidtablets.net/forum/viewsonic-gtablet/10202-list-roms-viewsonic-g-tablet.html

That's a (probably) incomplete list of ROMs for the GTab.

That links to the CyanogenMod 6 download (Beta 4 Harmony) being done by Bekit.

For that price, this is a great deal. Not a bad device at all either.

Thanks for the heads up G! Unfortunately due to some unexpected expenses, I will have to wait. Since I'm planning on getting a WiFi XOOM aswell.

I wish I could have picked one up -- I even got the all-clear to do so -- but I'm hoping I can save enough from book sales (at $12/month that's not very feisible) to get one soon. :) Something that I just don't NEED I'm not spending family funds on, you know?
