Walnut, Calif. - ViewSonic has begun offering a user-interface upgrade to its
because of consumer returns.
The company's "software partner is releasing an upgrade that will address customer concerns," said Jeff Volpe, VP/GM of ViewSonic Americas. "Along with great performance improvements, customers will have the flexibility to use both a standard Android interface as well as a user-customizable interface which has been significantly enhanced since the product launch."
Current G-Tablet owners will automatically receive the upgrade through their Wi-Fi connection by Friday, Dec. 24.
Meantime, units currently in stock at retailers can be returned by the retailers, and their software will be updated, a spokesperson said. Nonetheless, with the over-the-air update, the new software update will be automatically available for device updating once the device is connected to the web, she continued.
Starting as early as next week, ViewSonic will ship new G Tablets with the upgraded interface. "Units are in stock and ready to be updated at the distribution center, so turn around will be very quick," the spokesperson said.
