ViewSonic has decided to kick off this year’s Mobile World Conference a little early: the UK branch of the company announced today the ViewPad 10 Pro, which will run both the Android 2.2 and Windows 7 operating systems.
ViewSonic is looking to market its new tablet to corporate buyers. The company hopes that the combination of Windows’ enterprise functionality and Android’s reputation as an entertaining, user-friendly OS will entice European businesses to adopt the ViewPad as the tablet of choice for employees.
Derek Wright, Product Marketing Manager of ViewSonic Europe, said that the ViewPad’s dual-boot, quick switch capability “offers users the best of both worlds.”
Full specs, release information, and pricing are not yet available, but ViewSonic has confirmed that the ViewPad 10 Pro will sport a 10-inch, 1024 x 600, capacitive LED screen and will be powered by an Intel Oak Trail processor. Featuring a number of connectivity options, including 3G, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth, it will also have Flash 10.1 support and a battery life of at least six hours.
The ViewPad 10 Pro will be first previewed at the Mobile World Conference on Valentine’s Day.
