ViewSonic outs Windows/Android 10in tablet

For OS fence-sitters

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Here is ViewSonic's other Android-based tablet, though here the Google OS is secondary to Windows 7.

ViewSonic ViewPad 100

Demo'd at this year's IFA consumer electronics show, the ViewPad 100 has a 10.1in, 600 x 1024 capacitive multi-touch display, 16GB of Flash storage and uses Intel's netbook-oriented 1.66GHz Atom N455 chip, needed to run Windows 7 Home Premium.

Windows is the gadget's primary OS. Android - just version 1.6 - is simply included as an alternative, fast-start OS for quick web browsing and email checking.

ViewSonic said the tablet will appeal to folk who "may not wish to be tied to a specific operating system".

The 100 also packs in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, assisted GPS, a 1.3Mp webcam, mini VGA port, and a Micro SD slot.

The ViewPad 100 will be available in October 2010. ViewSonic said the "estimated SRP" is "no more than £549". ®
