ViewPad 10 Pro

The Viewpad 10 Pro is a first among tablet computers in that it is a dual-boot embedded OS tablet. Viewpad 10 Pro is designed to run both Windows 7 Professional and Android 2.2 with a shared document storage area. This shared area allows users to manipulate files in either operating environment.

The tablet will run Intel's Oak Trail chipset and feature a 1024x600 pixel LED-backlit display.

Why Dual Boot?
ViewSonice claims this is the best of both business and entertainment worlds. Windows 7 Professional for business and Android 2.2 for entertainment. The thrust of this reasoning is that Windows 7 users need access to their business applications, but also want to explore the possibilities presented by Android.

The ViewPad 10 Pro will support Flash 10.1 and has a capacative touch (multi-touch) screen. The tablet will support 3G networks and Wi-Fi connectivity as well as Bluetooth 2.0. The unit clearly has a front-facing camera, but there are no figures as to resolution or whether or not it can be used for video-chat.

Battery life is projected to run six hours.

It is projected that tablet computers will dominate the market in England and the U.S. with a total of twenty million projected to be sold.
