The ViewSonic G Tablet is a budget friendly Android tablet and it just got even better with a new custom kernel which allows you to boost its CPU speed to 1.4 GHz. This makes the ViewSonic G Tablet faster than the Motorola XOOM and the iPad 2 for example. Now all we can ask for is to have Honeycomb running on the ViewSonic G Tablet ;)
This new custom kernel has been released by pershoot @ XDA and is compatible with the ViewSonic G Tablet as well as the Malata Zpad.
The custom kernel overclocks the G Tablet CPU speed to up to 1.4 GHz and also provides the following features:
