Thanks to tegatech for your support! This is a much better product than the viewpad 10
Not being satisfied with that response I eventually stumbled across a review that stated that the vpad10 was basically a rebadge of the Tegatech Tega v2. At which point I immediately came to the Tegatech site and forums (btw no Viewsonic forum to be found) where I found out that not only is the SSD upgradable but that Tegatech was more than willing and happy to upgrade my machine to a full Tega v2 and then cover the machine with a new warranty (Viewsonic doesn't use the same software package, include the 3g card/antenaes, or the accesories of the v2)
Yes, the Tega v2 does cost a bit more but it is simply a better package and I can't underscore enough what a difference good support and customer service is worth.
A wholesaler of Tablet computers and Touch Technologies established in 2001 Tegatech Australia started in the confines of a home garage. Having grown substantially since humble beginnings, Tegatech served resellers across Australia for the first five years. In 2006 operations were expanded into Europe (based out of Munich, Germany) and subsequently North America (based out of Florida, USA).
One key turning point was the launch of the company’s flagship Tablet PC – The TEGA v2 – which shipped to over 20 countries globally since 2010. With a passionate community of thousands of TEGA v2 Forum Members the TEGA v2 has a strong cult following and support infrastructure in place. The TEGA v2 has setup a great platform for TEGATECH to launch a TEGA v3, TEGA a3 and more.
Tegatech now welcomes hundreds of resellers from across the globe and continues to expand its product lines and resources to assist resellers. As a wholesaler Tegatech works with several manufacturers to distribute products across the globe and increase opportunities for resellers to increase their profit through great products and great service.

Industry Solutions: Control Systems
To maximize efficiencies, today's manufacturing plants are becoming more automated to ensure precise quality control through all stages of production.
With a Tegatech Australia mobile solution, warehouse and manufacturing staff can assess key milestones while tracking all stages of production from anywhere on the production floor - without having to go back to an office to re-enter data and findings.
To increase productivity and reduce errors, many warehouses now utilize menu-driven applications using a touchscreen to regulate standards and benchmarks. If handwritten notes are used to gauge progresses, then "jotting" notes on a Slate Tablet PC or a UMPC provides a constructive manner for keeping continuous archive of progress. Either way, the information can be transmitted to a centralized data management via wireless servers to eliminate duplicate efforts and keep everyone on the production floor current and connected.
Industry Solutions: Education
As today's teachers incorporate Tablet PCs and UMPCs into the lesson plans, they are promoting an exciting learning experience that encourages efficiency and enables stronger classroom interaction.
Tegatech Australia Tablet PCs and UMPCs help teachers develop a more flexible "mobile teaching" style as well as create higher impact "real-time" presentations. Using a wireless connection, teachers can easily distribute electronic content, assign electronic reference materials and video clips and answer individual questions for increased efficiency.
For students, a Tegatech Australia Sahara Slate PC® Tablet PC or eo™ UMPC provides a compact and lightweight educational tool for taking notes in digital ink, reading e-books, completing assignments, watching presentations and communicating with other students.
Industry Solutions: Government
For government field work, a Tegatech Australia Sahara Slate PC® Tablet PC or eo™ UMPC is the ideal tool to maximize agent efficiency and increase productivity levels for mobile users.
