ViewSonic has introduced a new dual-OS tablet, which will hit stores later this month.
The device, dubbed the ViewPad 10pro, will be an Intel Atom tablet with a 10.1-inch display and either 16GB or 32GB of memory. The tablet will be one of the first to market with Intel’s “Oak Trail” Atom Z670, a chip designed for low-powered, fan-less devices. The ViewPad 10pro will run Windows 7 Home Premium or Professional, yet offers users access to Android 2.3 Gingerbread via a virtualization layer.
The new dual-OS slate will feature Intel’s GMA 600 integrated graphics, 2GB of RAM, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a microSD card slot expandable up to 32GB, full sized USB port and an HDMI port. The ViewPad 10pro will sport a 1024 x 600 capacitive multi-touch display and will come equipped with a front-facing 1.3MP camera.
The hybrid Windows and Android tablet will be available retail for $599 for the 16GB version and $699 for the 32GB model. A separate dock will also be offered for $59.
