The first of the OEM garbagetablets(TM) are being recalled. Staples is pulling the Viewsonic gTablet for manufacturing defects and is “flexing” the laptop display to make it seem like the devices were never there – a very Stalin-esque way of saying these things were junk.
We received this image from a Staples employee. Sad stuff. The Viewsonic tablets haven’t even been out for very long.
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: we’re going to see some of the worst junk in the world hitting the shelves in 2011 as makes scramble to release tablets. Keep your wits about you, people.
To be clear, I’m not suggesting the gTablet is the only upcoming garbage tablet. I suspect we’ll see far more of these from far more providers in the next few months.
