Want an Android tablet? Try one for free

Is this merely progressive customer service - or another sign that Android tablets aren't selling well?

ViewSonic, once best-known as makers of the kind of cheap, slightly crappy wireless keyboards you get from Maplin, are carving out a new niche for themselves as makers of cheap, slightly crappy Android tablets. OK, that's not fair - but that's kinda their reputation. Perhaps for that reason, ViewSonic are convinced people who buy their ViewPad 7 Android tablet will be pleasantly surprised by their purchase.

They're so convinced, in fact, that they're offering a money-back guarantee. If you don't like your ViewPad, you can send it back for a full refund - and ViewSonic will even pay the postage.

'SIMPLY PURCHASE A VIEWPAD 7 FROM ANY AUTHORISED RETAILER AND TRY IT FOR FREE!,' the website screams. 'We are so confident that you will be delighted with your ViewPad that if you are not completely satisfied we will refund the full purchase price plus a £10 postage contribution.'

Now, we wouldn't for a second recommend you get a ViewPad, have great fun playing with it for a week and then 'decide' you don't like it. That would be wrong. Understand us? Wrong.
