Calibre doesn't detect the Viewsonic G 10.1" Android tablet

I just purchased a Viewsonic Android tablet, which appears to be a rebranded version of some Chinese OEM, which is pretty standard. It's based on an NVIDIA Tegra 2 chip set, and I've included before and after snapshots from the debug device detection output.

I'm guessing the "droid you're looking for" is:

['0x955L',
'0x7100L',
'0x9999L',
u'NVIDIA',
u'NVIDIA Harmony',
u'17144042413f5297']

"Harmony" also appears in the software build version string on the tablet, and must be a code name for the NVIDIA Tegra 2 chipset, or so I'm guessing. I've omitted the output from osx_get_usb_drives as it's pretty long; let me know if that would be of use.

Thanks for your help and for the wonderful software. In the mean time, I'll just use "connect to folder" to move content to the device.

I'm trying both Aldiko and FBReader on Android. Aldiko seems a bit of a pain in that I need to go through the "import" process on the Android tablet, which hardly have the same document sync experience like I enjoy on my Sony PRS600. But we take what we can get with the current state of the art..

I haven't settled on which software I'll end up using yet. I tried Wordreader, but I had a poor experience with it; perhaps the screen size surprises it. FBReader seems a little easier to get along with, but the user experience with Aldiko feels better.

You can use the calibre content server to wirelessly get books on your device with aldiko or fbreader or wordplayer.
