When the ViewSonic V35 was first released last month, customers were not aware that only 36.45MB of its 64MB of RAM is actually available to the user. The rest is taken up by the operating system. Last week, the company began changing its marketing materials to make this clear but this doesn’t help people who have already purchased one. Yesterday, a ViewSonic spokesperson told CNet “If anyone has purchased a device under the impression that they are getting 64MB, they can return it for a refund.”
