Viewsonic Tablets Aimed at U.S.

share on:

Viewsonic announced a line of Android tablets for the U.S. including a “dual-boot” ViewPad 10 which can use either Windows 7 or Android 1.6.

Also new is a 7-inch ViewPad running Android 2.2 that’s one of the few tablets to connect to the Android Market with access to over 100,000 apps.

The ViewPad 10 lets user choose between two operating systems on the same device for a price of $629. It is suited for video conferencing with a 1.3MP webcam and for use with Microsoft Office programs. It has a 10.1 inch capacitive screen and Intel 1.66GHz processor. It offers 1GB of memory, 16GB SSD hard drive and expandable micro SD slot. It will ship in Q1.

The 7-inch ViewPad 7 has WiFi, Bluetooth and dual cameras: a 3MP model in the rear with auto focus and a 0.3MP camera in front. It has a Snapdragon processor, 512MB of memory, microSD card slot and 10 hour battery life. It ships in Q4 at $479.

A completely confusing ad on Sears.com has the Viewsonic Dual-Boot ViewPad 10 on sale for pre-order. But it lists the device at $379.99 with shipping planned for tomorrow, November 2, which doesn’t jibe with the information above.
