Here is a classic good and bad news combo from Viewsonic – the G-Tablet is now up for sale at Sears for $379.99, which is less than what was expected. However, there is some confusion resulting from Sears is claiming that the Tegra II powered device is running Android 2.2. This, while it’s an Intel Atom N455 based tablet capable of dual booting both Windows 7 and Android 1.6. The present configuration isn’t bad, however, as Android 1.6 could not have delivered what Android 2.2 can. Still, we would like a word from either Sears or preferably from Viewsonic to confirm or deny which Android is available. Hopefully that comes quickly.
