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.
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.
