Viewsonic ViewPad 100 dual boot with Android and Windows

Viewsonic’s ViewPad 100 dual boot 10-inch tablet PC with Android and Windows OS dual-boot OS, now more details have been announced during IFA event held in Berlin recently. Named as ViewPad 100, the device is powered by Intel Atom processor clocking at 1.66GHz supporting both Windows 7 and Android version 1.6 to compete against Apple’s famous iPad and other tablet PCs in the market.

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.

Targeted to be available in October 2010 for Europe market, the device will be retailed at £549 (equivalent to $848) which is quite pricey for average users. However, no confirmation on when will it be available to US market yet but it shouldn’t be too late as long as there is demand for dual boot tablet PC.
