    Clearly, VEGAn makes an enormous difference in the performance of the tablet – some of the test scores you have are very significant improvement gains. I think it would be interesting if you had reviewed TnT lite as well, to see which was the better of the two custom roms. I think you also need to make clear whether you updated the tablet to viewsonics last (only?) update which I gather resolves many issues.

    Finally, I think you should address the issue that is certainly on my mind – should a buyer snap up the g tablet (which is now sub $300) update it and be fairly confident that eventually google will release the source code for honeycomb (and XDA will update) OR does the informed buyer wait to buy a honeycomb capable tablet, of which several are coming but which are going to be 50% more money (Asus Transformer and the Acer A500 are said to be ~$450)?

    It doesn’t appear as if Viewsonic is going to be further supporting the tablet.

      Even though the g tablet is powerful enough I think the screen is a big enough problem that I would wait for one of the other tablets. I plan on doing reviews of both those tablets when they come out, so stay tuned for more details.
