When it comes to the world of tablets these days, it seems that the Android operating system has the most “fans”, as many hardware manufacturers have adopted the free operating system, hence helping keep the costs of the tablet device as low as possible. The iPad 2 from Apple needs no introduction, while the BlackBerry PlayBook is struggling although we do not have any concrete data on how the HP TouchPad would perform in the near term. What about Windows on tablet devices? Those are quite rare as well, but with Viewsonic helping out by throwing their weight with the ViewPad 10pro, things might spice up a bit in the tablet market. This 10″ device has arrived at the FCC, and interestingly enough, it allows you to switch between Windows 7 and Android.
We do know that the Viewsonic ViewPad 10pro will feature Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity and an Intel Oak Trail 1.5GHz processor. This is not a true blue dual-boot device though, since it runs Android in a Windows-based virtualization application, so you can rule out reaping the full rewards of a true blue Android tablet. I wonder what kind of strain the processor goes through with the virtualization process going on…
