ViewSonic launches world's first dual boot tablet

ViewSonic launched two new tablets: the ViewPad 7 and what's being claimed as the world's first dual boot tablet, the ViewPad 10. Leila Makki reports.
The ViewPad 10 tablet device not only wins bragging rights for its dual boot capability but thanks to its Intel Atom 1.66GHz processor, may very well be the "fastest Android tablet available right now," or so says ViewSonic. The 10-inch capacitive touch-screen display runs both Android 1.6 and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium.
There's a G-sensor (basically an accelerometer) built into the device with multi-touch and pinch to zoom. However, the ViewPad 10 only has a front-facing 1.3 megapixel webcam for videoconferencing and limited functionality with the dated Android 1.6 OS.
The ViewPad 7 is a sleeker tablet running the latest Android 2.2 operating system.

For those who feel there are already too many devices piling up in their stuff drawer, ViewSonic has introduced an upgrade scheme where consumers can trade in old hardware like netbooks and laptops and receive up to £125 off a new tablet. The upgrade programme is only available for the Viewpad from participating retailers. Go to Home :: ViewSonic to learn more.
The ViewPad 7 will retail for £399 expected to hit stores on 15 November whereas the ViewPad 10 will be available at £499 from the 1st November.
