It’s been quite some time since we covered anything regarding ViewSonic and their line up of Android tablets, but since it has finally been announced that ViewSonic’s ViewPad 10 has made it over here to the states, we figured what better time than now to update everyone on what’s to be expected with this tablet in regards to hardware and price.
The ViewPad 10 still sports a 10.1-inch touchscreen with a 1024 x 600 resolution, 2GB of RAM, 1.66GHz Atom Processor, 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera, microSD slot, along with all the usual bells and whistles like WiFi and Bluetooth.
What was originally appealing about the ViewPad 10 was the fact that it’s a dual-booting tablet, offering Windows 7 as well as Android. What’s not appealing about this is that it’s a rather ancient version of Android… we’re talkin’ 1.6. While the specs may not seem fantastic, especially considering the competition with the Apple iPad 2, Motorola XOOM and Samsung Galaxy Tab, it’s not stopping shipments from coming here in the US. You can expect to see the ViewPad 10 for $599 and $679 in select stores.
So… is it everything you’ve always dreamed it would be?
