ViewSonic Unveils ViewPad 10Pro, Runs Both Android And Windows 7
For those wanting the “best of both worlds” in their tablet, they are in luck. ViewSonic’s newly announced ViewPad 10Pro combines the Android and Windows 7 operating systems into a 10” tablet. Powered by an Intel Z670 Oak Trail processor at 1.5GHz, the 800g tablet is capable of playing 1080p video, and has 32GB of onboard storage to hold all that media. The IO of the tablet includes a 3G and 802.11 b/g/n WiFi radio, bluetooth 2.1, Micro SD card, USB port, charging port, 3.5mm audio jack, and HDMI out.
With a native resolution 1024x600 LED multi-touch display, the tablet runs Windows 7 Pro alongside Android 2.2 via Bluestacks’ virtualization technology. This allows the user to “instantly switch” between the two desktop environments, according to ViewSonic. All this hardware is supported by a 3500mAh battery, which purports to have up to a 4.5 hour usage time before the next charge. You can see more pictures of the device over at Engadget.
