Email

While the possibility exists to download different email clients for the VIZIO VTab, the included GMail app will allow you to get email through your linked account in a tablet-friendly interface. While it's not as attractive as the interface on devices with Android 3, it still gets the job done with minimal difficulty, even if many features are buried or missing.

Web Browsing

The web browser of the VIZIO VTab is oddly reminiscent of that of the Velocity Micro Cruz tablets, but thankfully the experience is a little less infuriating. While the browser itself is ugly, it doesn't fail to accomplish the basics in browsing, so it should suffice should you decide to look up IMDB to figure out if the voice of a cartoon character is actually a famed child actor.
