Walnut California based Viewsonic has announced a new dual booting tablet to their tablet line up.
The Viewsonic ViewPad 10Pro runs on a 1.5GHz Intel Atom processor Z760. The tablet will dual boot Windows 7 and Android.
According to Viewsonic the Atom processor will give the tablet the horse power it needs for dual booting both operating systems, and performing multiple tasks in a thinner and slimmer form factor.
“The new Intel Atom processor-based tablet from ViewSonic is a cool, and distinguished product that brings a personalized and flexible experience,” said Bill Kircos, general manager of marketing for Intel’s Netbook and Tablet Group. “Our Intel platform supports multiple operating systems, and this tablet shows how consumers can move between Windows and Android experiences in a way that offers rich graphics, high-definition audio, easy Internet browsing and longer battery life in a slick form factor.”
More after the break
Other specs include a 1024×600 capacitive touch screen, 1080p true HD video viewing and 2gb of integrated memory. The ViewPad 10 also has an expandable microSD slot. There will be two models available with your choice of Windows Professional, Android and 32gb of SSD memory. The other model does with Windows Home and 16gb SSD.
Acer has released some dual boot netbooks that boot both Windows and Android. On those machines you need to pick which OS you’d like to boot into. Viewsonic has actually made Android 2.3 open as an app that can run on top of Windows allowing the user to seamlessly transition from Windows apps and Android.
Look for both versions of the Viewsonic TouchPad 10 Pro to be available at the end of the month. The 32gb Windows Professional version will be $699. The 16gb Windows Home version will be $599. As we said above both versions will run Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
