ViewPad 10pi strikes with Windows tablet

viewsonic-p10i[CES 2012] Viewsonic intends to pave the way for a rare Windows-powered tablet in the market by using CES 2012 as the introductory platform. Running on the latest Intel Oak Trail Z670 processor that is tablet-centric and Windows 7 Professional as the operating system of choice, the ViewPad 10pi is certainly something worth looking into if you are not going to settle for an iPad or an Android-powered tablet. Tipping the scales at a mere 1.77lbs, the ViewPad 10i will come with a super high resolution IPS display at 1280 x 800 pixels, accompanied by 64GB Of storage space, dual cameras, pre-loaded apps and custom software. Leveraging the power of the Cloud, the ViewPad 10pi will also support Remote Desktop Connection to other computers of yours – be they at home or at work. This enables you to access your files, programs and networks anytime, anywhere, from the comfort of the ViewPad 10pi – just make sure there is a decent connection beforehand, otherwise you might end up rather frustration.

Other hardware specifications include 2GB RAM, a 64GB SSD for storage purposes, an SD memory card slot, WiFi connectivity, a 3.2-megapixel camera at the back with a 1.3-megapixel shooter up front for video call purposes, and a couple of USB 2.0 ports. The battery life does seem disappointing though, rated officially at 4 hours, and I am quite sure if you leave a movie running, it will be far shorter than that.

Being dual OS ready, you can still opt to make the jump to the Android platform if you feel like it, although you will have to make do with Android 2.3 Gingerbread as there does not seem to be an Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich in the works anytime soon.
