ViewSonic launches ViewPad 10pro tablet

The Android and Windows 7 hybrid tablet should soon be available through online merchants

When the ViewPad 10pro was announced at this year’s MWC, it was noteworthy for its dual-boot ability with Windows 7 and Android. Now, ViewSonic is ready to begin offering the 10.1-inch tablet in the United States.

The ViewPad 10pro includes a 1024x600 resolution screen, a 1.5GHz Intel Oak Trail Atom Z670 CPU, 2GB DDR2 RAM, front-facing camera and up to a 32GB SSD. Bluetooth 2.1, HDMI, USB 2.0, MicroSD reader and wireless-n connectivity options are also available. Overall, the 1.85 pound (0.84kg) tablet is expected to last up to 8 hours with its built-in 2-cell 5000mAh battery.

Buyers will have the option to choose between Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional and should be able to “quickly switch between Windows and Android with one simple click.” Liliputing currently claims that the device will support Android 2.3, although the official 10pro product page lists the tablet shipping with Android 2.2 instead.

With two operating systems under its belt and integrated quick switch functionality, we’re quite relieved that the ViewPad 10pro is shipping with double the system RAM compared to many other Android devices. The tablet should be perfect for those wanting to run desktop programs along with Android apps.

As of this writing, no online merchants are selling the device, although Amazon is currently taking pre-orders for $649. Get the full details on the 10pro at the official ViewSonic product page.

After graduating with a B.S. in environmental hydrodynamics from the University of California, I studied reactor physics to become licensed by the U.S. NRC to operate nuclear reactors. There's a striking level of appreciation you gain for everyday consumer electronics after working with modern nuclear reactivity systems astonishingly powered by computers from the 80s. When I'm not managing day-to-day activities and US review articles on Notebookcheck, you can catch me following the eSports scene and the latest gaming news.
