We know that ViewSonic’s ViewPad 100 is capable of dual booting, but with more details on the tablet device being revealed, the initial euphoria isn’t quite there any more. After all, having Android 1.6 running on it isn’t exactly going to excite anyone, despite the fact that you can always boot up Windows 7 as an alternative. We’re still trying to figure out how a dual booting tablet will fit into the average Joe’s life, but if it ever takes off, it will probably occupy an extremely niche market. Other hardware specifications of the ViewSonic ViewPad 100 include a 10-inch LED display at 1024 x 600 resolution, an Intel Atom N455 1.66Ghz processor, 1GB RAM, 16GB SSD, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity, a G-sensor, A-GPS, a couple of USB ports, a miniVGA, microSD memory card slot and an integrated 1.3-megapixel webcam. No idea on pricing though.
