There have been tablets running the Android operating system and tablets running the Windows 7 OS. There has also been tablet PCs running both the Android and Windows 7 operating system, though it’s no secret the latter has never made it big in the market.
However, that has not deterred ViewSonic from making another attempt at a tablet running Android as well as Windows. Their latest tablet – the ViewPad 10Pro is just that and the good thing is, it has already made it past FCC regulations for its Bluetooth and WiFi functionalities.
Running the 1.5 GHz Intel Oak Trail processor, the ViewPad 10Pro comes with a 10 inch display. However, one unique aspect of the 10Pro, that sets it apart from many a dual boot tablet PC we have seen earlier, is that the ViewSonic tablet is not what we mean by a true blue Android tablet. This since the tablet has been designed to run Android in a Windows-based virtualization application.
The rest of the details have been kept under wraps so that there is no inkling as to when we can expect the tablet in the market or at what price. Battery life is also of critical importance in a Windows tablet’s success. There is no information yet as to what sort of battery life we can expect out of the 10Pro.
Keep watching for more on this.
