IFA 2010: ViewSonic unveils dual-boot Android and Windows-based tablets

Either Android or Windows for ViewPad 100 accompanied by not so different configuration

As expected, IFA hosted the launch of various tablets by various brands with latest features and specifications to woo customers. When the turn came to ViewSonic, they displayed a dual-boot tablet. The 10-inch tablet, known as ViewPad 100, is armed with a 1.66GHz Atom processor and runs either Windows 7 or the older version of Android, i.e. Android 1.6 and the design also supports multi-touch. The slate has a 16GB solid-state drive, if you more storage then you can opt for SHDC card slot.

The specification of the slate is nothing different from other netbooks that is available in the market today. The system has a display of 1024 × 600 pixels of resolution and has 1GB of DDR3 memory. Other common features like the Bluetooth, GPS, Wi-Fi, two USB ports, a webcam of 1.3 megapixels and a VGA video output are also integrated.

In the UK, the ViewPad will be available for £549 ($848) and will be shipped to Europe and the UK in October. But they didn’t tell about any launch date in USA, but eventually it will happen in US.
